CARMAN Hello,I'm in a 2008 ES and have 4 months left on my lease, rec an offer from Lexus about getting out early. Went to see my options and like the 2010 ES - they have an ULTRA on the lot loaded with a sticker price of $44,436, they are offering me 36 mo/15k for $595 inc tax with $1,395 oop. This still seems high since EDMUNDS is showing the car at much less plus I read there is $3k in dealer support. What do you think is best deal they will do on this?

Sorry to hear that.
Buy the car who ever offers the best price and get finance from AAA - saw an ad that said 2.99% APR and your FICO should get you the best rate.
All the best.

I think it is a good deal, too.
How about the Total MSRP price? Is it $37,435 ?

I recently leased a new 2010 Lexus ES350 (with NAV) for $508/mo/15k miles/36 months in NJ. This includes tax and Gap Ins. This also includes scheduled maintenance for up to 40K miles. Down payment at signing was $1,696 (1st mo. pmt, $700 bank fee, registration, docs). Cap cost of car was $35,437 and residual is $21,432. Is this is a fair price? Thanks.

35437 - 21432 - 508 = 13497 / 36 = $374.92/mo + interest + tax
You are borrowing $13497 + tax for 36 mos. Interest rate is the big variable.

My dealer in the Seattle, WA area is offering $35,000 OTD for a MSRP $37,455. From what I'm reading, this doesn't sound like such a great deal as everyone else seems to be getting around the 33k range OTD. I feel like I've really fought to get to $35. Am I doing something wrong? Or is the lack of number of dealerships in Seattle area (less competition) driving up the cost compared to CA and elsewhere?

Lexus has $3000 cash back to dealer for 2010 model, expired on Nov 1st, 2010.
During that time, I believe it is easy to negotiate than now, In October 2010, all the dealers which I checked, they wanted 1 or 2 thousand over MSRP for 2011 model
Buy 2011 model (MSRP is only a couple hundred dollar more than 2010) I think it maybe better because it uses regular unleaded (instead of premium) but not with price over sticker price. If you want the best value, Camry XLE V6 is less expensive, look identical ES350, low maintenance cost. (Ex: Special oil change only $30 vs Lexus ES350 oil change $99)
