#3644 of 5850 RX 350 - 2008 Certified Pre-owned (CPO)
Jun 18, 2010 (4:22 am)
One of the cars I have test driven over the past week is s Certified Pre-Owned 2008 RX 350. My wife and I both enjoyed the ride and like the 3 year warranty on a CPO. My lease isn't up until the end of August. What is the best time to purchase a CPO? Would the end of June be better because it's a quarter end or is that irrelevant? Can I expect a Lexus dealer to discount the asking price on a CPO?
For anyone who has purchased a Lexus CPO, did you receive the new car finance rates?

Yeah ... where are you guys getting these inflated MSRPs??
I got one from the window sticker .... where it says MSRP.
37,551 is an excellent price for a basic FWD model especially if you figure it on a percentage basis 12% plus discount.
Here's a deal for you Funguy .... in the 30s
37625 base FWD
37551 your price

If you can wait then until after 2011 RX350 comes out. You *should* be able to find good deals for 2010 RX350.

Use the Edmunds Auto Loan Calculator and it will give you the exact monthly payments.
I think it is a good time to buy the car as the dealers are more eager to make the sale as 2011 models are ready to roll. If you can wait till Christmas You may be able to get a little better prices but then the selection would be very limited if You are stuck on a particular colour and options package.
Start shopping around now and try to get the prices from the nearest dealerships You have access to.
Thankyou and keep us posted about your progress.

I just purchased your same exact car
The price I'm getting is 42500.00
on the msrp of 48259.
Basically no dealers in ny will go under 43000
in my opinon.

I got this price in MA
end of the month
Jun 23, 2010 (4:27 am)
I am looking into getting a new Lexus RX350 in MA, possibly going to dealers in Watertown, Sharon for Herb Chambers, and Danvers to check out the best pricing available. Just looking for any insight on what the invoice may be for an AWD with no nav; not really looking for particular options on the car other then black leather. I got an MSRP from one dealer of $44,724 for a few added bells and whistles. Am trying to get down more towards 36 low/high if at all possible...not sure if that is going to be a realistic price any time in the near future. Thanks for any input you may have!
