Hi Guys. I am currently looking at a Lexus ES 350 for my mother, got a quote from a local dealer but not too impressed by the offer. Options on car are: Full Size Spare, heated front seats, wood wheel and knob, preferred accessory package, paint protection film, and aftermarket rear sensors, total MSRP w/ delivery is $39,826, their offer price was $38,500. This was not nearly the discount I was expecting. Am I off base? Any recommendation in the SW Ohio area? Thanks......Mark.

Your best deal is at JM Lexus in Fl, largest Lexus dealer in the world. You can do it all over the internet, name your price they will take it. They will ship it to you if you dont want to drive there. Largest inventory around.
I have bought 3 cars there. Sooz.

#2748 of 2855 Buying used from Lexus dealerships experiences
Aug 02, 2012 (7:49 am)
I am looking for a used ES350 in Maryland and have gone the Carmax route but not found the right one yet. I now want to explore the local Lexus dealers used inventories.
Much has been written on these forums about new car buying pricing and strategies, but very little about used car prices. Carmax seems to have fair market pricing but Lexus dealership pricing on similar vehicles is over several thousand higher. Has anyone bought a used Lexus from a Lexus dealer. Can fair market value prices for their used cars be negotiated??
Any suggestions or hands on experiences greatly appreciated!

The 2013's are already out. Saw one yesterday at a local Lexus dealer. The interior looks much better. However, I did not care for the black dash.

The car was loaded. It had a suggested MSRP of about $44K. You can go to nadaguides.com and configure a 2013 with the options that you would like to have. What is interesting is the base invoice cost is only about $2,285 less the MSRP. Also, the factory options have very little markup. Makes you wonder how the dealer is really making their money selling a new unit.

Realize it's early days, but anyone have buying experience with a 2013 ES? Buying in Dallas. Sewell and Park Place both quoting MSRP. No discount, financing incentive or loyalty bonus.
Sales guys say "hey, it's a brand new model get in line" anyone have a different experience? Predictions on whether they will dissent during the December sale?
Thanks for any info.
