#3599 of 5862 Looking to Buy a used 2008 RX 350
May 28, 2010 (5:49 am)
I am beginning negotiations on the above vehicle at Metro Lexus in Cleveland. The vehicle has standard equipment, no nav, is nicely trimmed and has only 24,000 miles. The dealer is asking $31,988. I am trading a used 2003 ES300 which has 120,000 miles and is rated (by me) as "fair". I am offered $6,500. Can you tell me how much wiggle room I have to negotiate? I am hoping to get the dealer to move $3K in total. Realistic?

That sounds great deal. Which dealer is this? I am also in So. California and would like to get this car this memorial day weekend. Thanks!

Surprisingly, the dealer was Lexus in Santa Monica. Always a bit skeptical of SM dealerships, but they played ball. I even changed the deal and decided (at the last minute) not to lease and to buy "cash" -- and to their credit, they didn't change the deal terms as I was expecting -- since they were losing the financing profit.
So, props to Lexus S.M.

Thanks a lot samgs. Who is the sales person? I have dealt different sales persons from the same dealer and they can treat you differently.

#3605 of 5862 most of them don't come with HID?
May 31, 2010 (8:54 am)
I've been shopping for a 2010 RX350 this weekend. To my surprise, a big portion of them are in the 45k trim -> without the comfort package. Meaning they don't have the HID light. I was really, really surprised at the dealer when the sales showed me the halogen light and claimed "These are super powerful lights that you don't need HID. Most of our customers don't want them (HID) equipped anyways". This thing really bugs me as it's year 2010 already and Lexus is still putting halogen light bulbs from the last century on these 40k supposed-to-be-luxurious cars. Trying to save a few bucks? Maybe...
Has anyone noticed this?
#3606 of 5862 what do you think
Jun 03, 2010 (8:07 pm)
Went to a dealer in Rochester, NY, and was offered this:
AWD base $39025
Total accessories $8100
(Comfort pkg, 12-speakers, Nav, Prem pkg, Accy pkg, remote start, tow pkg, wood/leader trimmed)
Showed me invoice of $43,357
From reading this forum it looks like I can do about $1000 better. Is that right?
If that's the case, how do I ask them - just tell them I'll take it for $1K less?

Yes .... just make your offer.
I guess the deals vary by area. The best price I can get so far is appx 43700 .... on an msrp of 48300. That price is right at the invoice price they showed me. Their invoice includes holdback money, marketing money, floorplan money.
The best price I've been offered is considerably less discount than some are reporting.
Let us know what happens

I'd be interested in hearing how you do. The best offer I've seen on the same vehicle in OH is $44500. The ranges I've been offered are $44500 - $45500. They won't budge under $44500, even though they are holding several months of inventory. I am ready to go out of state. Who is the dealer?
