#246 of 5850 Looking for competive Lexus dealer
Oct 27, 2006 (6:21 am)
I live in western NY. Can't say the dealers out here are competitive, whether in Buffalo, Rochester or Syracuse. Can anyone within a 5-6 hours driving distance from out here direct me to a great dealer that will discount a 2007 RX-350? I'm thinking as far west as
Cleveland, as far east as Boston, as far south as NJ...downstate NY.....eastern PA....and even to the DC area. Please advise. The dealers here are killing me with their very professional, but very smug attitude. A deep discount, not a shallow discount with window dressing on it. Oh yes...it will be for a leased RX, 3 years, 12k miles/year.
Thanks to all in this forum that can provide help.

I also talked to dealer like yours and they gave price of MRSP or a little below that, treating you as you are an idiot - Do not even bother for any further discussion in terms of price.
You may want to try dealers in LA region in CA. You can get price as low as $35600 for FWD AND $37000 for AWD (no NAV. + $2200 for nav.). Find a car transportion company on ebay (cost $800 - 1000). You can get a car made in japan there and maybe the same or even lower price after adding the transporation cost. Most importantly, you will not feel you are treated as an idiot.

I just bought a RX350 2007 from Ray Catena Lexus in Monmouth, NJ. The salesman was an absolute pleasure to deal with, and the pricing couldn't be beat. I am $5000 under MSRP. It is well worth a drive there. I don't know if I can post the salesmans name but you can email me. Good Luck

Sender1, Those numbers sound really impressive! Congratulations. My cousin is actively in the market for an RX 350 in NJ. DId you say $5K below sticker?? Amazing. Can you please email me the details too?
I would really appreciate your help.
BTW, All, is it true that you can buy the base RX350 AWD with just NAV?? I thought they always made you buy other packages since the equiped options were "cookie cut" in that manner. For ex, Yes NV is a $2650 option but you will have to take in a premium plus if you needed NV unless you special ordered it.. That's how it used to be.. Have things changed??
#251 of 5850 RX350 Dealers invoice
Oct 28, 2006 (9:18 am)
Can any one tell me that the cost to the dealers for the items such as TDA, DEalers Holdback and Whsl Financial reserve which amounted to be about$1700.oo is a real cost to the dealer? The dealer is willing to sell me a vehicle RX350 for $750.00 above the dealers invoice. The invoice would be 40866 and MSRP would be $45706.00. I have to pay $750.00 above $40866 +tax, Tag and fees of $385.00. Your reply is appreciated.

You don't have to worry about all the tricks that car sale people use to spin your head . The simple rule is to negotiate for a price that is between $4500-$5000 below the MSRP, then all you have to pay in addition to that is the Tax & License fee.
