#1067 of 5850 08 FWD RX 350 - lease price
Dec 02, 2007 (12:13 am)
I live in So Cal.
Dealer #1-Keyes - went there for the “Costco” deal. They couldn’t discuss any “prices” over phone or internet, had to drive to the dealership and waste my time. ALL their cars have new wheels put on them “as soon as they hit the ground” as the salesperson put it. I personally didn’t like them (at any price) and didn’t want to pay $3k for them! But I was told that’s how ALL their cars are sold (I cannot believe that that many people sucker for this gimmick!) They never did show me cap cost or money factors as I had asked for, only monthly payments……..needless to say I left!
Dealer #2 – Longo (have bought 3 Toyotas from them and very happy, 1st Lexus experience). Worked with the Internet dept and set up a price before arriving to the dealership. (I had wanted the AWD but they didn’t have any bamboo in stock so the color was more important to me than AWD and I was ready to buy my new car).
08 FWD – MSRP: 44371 (invoice-39107 according to aaa’s website), Cap Cost: 39900 (including $600 fee), 3yr/36000 mi lease, 56% residual, .00155 money factor.
937.71 down (minimum – 1st mo payment + DMV/fees); $561.25 monthly payments (including tax)
I think I got a good deal and was in and out of the dealership in about 1 hr since I had test-drove the car at dealer #1 and negotiated with the Internet dept ahead of time. Also, I sold my other car to Carmax because they always offer higher prices than dealers.

Have you been back for service or warranty work? Have you been satisfied? Thanks for any assistance you can offer.
#1069 of 5850 How to request quotes
Dec 03, 2007 (1:55 pm)
I'm planning to purchase an RX350 AWD w/o NAV (the exact configuration is at the bottom of the message) The quoted MSRP is $43216 incl. destination charge; invoice (w/dest.) is $38197, according to Edmunds.com. I test drove the car last weekend and pretty much made up my mind to buy it. I did not discuss pricing with the salesperson, but he did tell me that with their 'December to Remember' discount the price for the model would be about $41400. I thought that there was little room for negotiation and was planning to offer $40500.
There is only one Lexus dealer where I live (SW Washington/Portland OR area), and I thought that I was pretty much stuck with those guys. However, upon reading the forum, I've decided to request quotes from the 3 Seattle-Tacoma area Lexus dealers. My question is, what is the best way to make the price inquiry from multiple dealers? Should I simply ask for the "best price quote" from each dealer, or also disclose my initial offer (which will be considerably lower than what I initially thought) during the inquiry? I don't wish to show my hand right off the bat, but I doubt that their initial offers will come close to the prices that are being quoted in the forum (i.e., very close to or at invoice). I'd be very interested to hear others' suggestions/strategies.
Thanks, and best regards.
RX350 AWD w/Luxury Value Edition (which includes Premium Plus Package), 7-Spoke wheels, heated seatsw/rain-sensing wipers, Towing Prep Package, cargo mat and wheel locks (no NAV unit or bluetooth).

I am also in the same area and looking for exactly the same car. I have also requested the quote from others and so far no success. Let's be in touch and my email is technocratlive.com. If we say that we have to buy two cars, may be we can negotiate better. My target is $39K. Pls advice if any one has got this price or better or this is too low to ask.
#1071 of 5850 08 RX 350 AWD WITH NAV
Dec 04, 2007 (5:56 am)
I am very serious in purchasing the 2008 Lexus RX 350 AWD this weekend. This includes the premium plus package, heated seats, rain sensors, Nav+bluetooth+voice.
I have phoned around a few dealers in my area (outside of Philadelphia), and the best offer was $41,500 + tax. I have tried to play a few dealers off each other but it seems this is as good as it gets. Is this a good deal?
