#1 of 5517 Lexus 350 - purchase
May 29, 2006 (11:15 am)
Any one who have recently purchased RX350 with DVD Navigation System with Neptune Blue Color. I am in Bay area and would like to know at what price did you get and from which dealer. I live in SantaClara, California.
I visited one of the dealers and they told me that it would take 4-6 weeks for the delivery.
Any insight to this would be appreciated!

Even though I'm from the Bay Area, I ended up buying in Roseville (out of Sacramento). Got a Bamboo 2007 RX 350, premium plus, 18 inch wheels, tow pkg (everything "according to the dealer" except Mark Levinson sound or back seat DVD) for $41k. I was surprised they were willing to deal since it only just came out.
Love the car after ten days of ownership. Only beef is with the bluetooth and the phone. Works unreliably. Must have a phone on the compatibility list.

That is a very good deal. Is this AWD/FWD? Which dealer in Sacramento did you buy from?

AWD! Lexus of Roseville. They only had 4 to choose from (3 black and one bamboo). We went in saying we wanted $5K under MSRP. Had to go back and forth 3 times. First time they came back with MSRP, we got up to leave, said we could look in the bay area. Second time they asked us if we were Costco member and were about $2700 under MSRP then last time we settled. I liked them all in all. No hard sell at the finance time with extended warranty or extras.

I leased a 350 AWD (PP/Nav) from Pleasanton last month.
Got it for $41,260, MSRP was $46,583.
But I will be going to Roseville to sell my old car to Carmax since trade-in I was quoted at the Pleasanton dealer was too low.
Had to wait 5 days to get the Breakwater Blue unit that I wanted.
Drove to SoCal this week-end. It's a sweeeet ride! Specially once you do the Nav Hack and can play with all the Nav functions even when the car is in motion.
#8 of 5517 RX 350 Bluetooth hands free w/Sprint A900
Jun 08, 2006 (8:40 pm)
Has anyone had success getting the handsfree feature to work? The dealer did not say we had to have certain phone &/or carrier. I just got this phone in April and it works sporadically when synced with the bluetooth. All of a sudden my cell will start dialing the car for no reason.
Taking it in tomorrow. I told them since they didn't give me a disclaimer AND I haven't filled out my JD Edwards satisfaction survey yet.....
Other than that I Love the car.

Works perfectly with my Verizon Motorola E815--had to delete other Bluetooth devices from phone, i.e. my ear piece. So I have Bluetooth whenever I drive this car, but need to reenter my ear piece and delete Lexus Bluetooth from my phone--and vice-versa when I drive the Lexus RX350. I am sure there are better Bluetooh phones out there.
