#2003 of 5860 RX 350 in central Illinois
Feb 09, 2009 (4:11 pm)
Has anyone purchased a new 2009 AWD RX350 from Lexus of Peoria. I am considering one and I would like to know what others have been paying and if they had a good experience with this dealer. Is it still possible to get about $9000.00 of the sticker even if you have a trade in? This is the only dealer in central Illinois .I am not interested in paying the extra cost for the premium package with the NAV as I do not think it is worth the extra 3-4,000 that they are asking.

I live right between Peoria and the quad Cities and have been looking at the Volvo XC70 and the Lexus RX350. I did some checking on Ebay as well as Lujack's website and was pretty discouraged. Lujacks had rx with 20,000 plus miles listed for the cost of what others on this forum paid for brand new. I'm not sure if it's because of where we live or if it's because I keep thinking that one of these days these dealerships will post ads in newspaper like some of the bigger cities. Very frustrating...Plus, no one wants to deal over the phone.
I will let you know if I go in...

I would stay away from the Volvo as I currently own a 2003 Volvo C70 and they are very expensive to repair. I only have 20,000 miles on it and once I had a problem with the security ring around the ignition failing to recognize the computer chip in the key and it wouldn't start. I went to see how much it would cost to have it fixed and they said $900.00 . I told them to forget it as it only happened once. They told me if it happens again to just remove the key and re-insert it and it should start. So much for security. I bought an RX 330 from Peoria in 2004 and it is the best SUV I have ever owned but they are the only game in town and thus are not to inclined to make a good deal. thank you for your response

You might want to check the Westmont Lexus Dealership. Call to see if they have any non-navigation available before you drive up there. They were down to about 5 non-navigation vehicles about 2-3 weeks ago. I was able to talk the sales guy down to $32,700 for a 2009 AWD Lexus RX350 with Premium Package. They didn't have the colors that I wanted so I ended up getting a Pebble Beach Edition from Bredemann Lexus in Glenview. Good luck.

I just test drove a new 2010 rx 350 at my local dealership which just arrived last night. They are claiming that they will only sell for MSRP at this time.
#2009 of 5860 Good Price or Rip Off?
Feb 13, 2009 (4:17 pm)
Just left my dealer in Southern NJ. Guy offers $34,500 or $35,600 (Can't remember which now, sorry lonnnnggggg day) leasing for 36 mths, 12K driving miles a yr, $399 for monthy payment, but wants $3,000 or $4,000 down and this was for a 2009 RX 350, no nav, premium plus package, Black w/black interior, which I really like. Now is it just me or is this a little pricey still? Am I being too cheap? I guess I keep thinking since it doesn't have nav shouldn't it be cheaper? They only have 1 Breakwater blue & 1 Pebble Beach in stock with nav. Any suggestions?

Looking for a 2009 Lexus RX 350 in NJ - did you ever find one at a good price? You mention Southern NJ - how far south?? So far I am not doing well in Central NJ
I love the Pebble Beach - but having ahard time locating one.

I'm in Marlton NJ. The dealership is on Route 73 South. It's listed as the Cherry Hill NJ dealer if you google it or you could put in 08053 as the zip code to bring it up. They moved to Marlton this summer to get a bigger lot. Hope this helps as they only had 1 in stock. Good Luck!
