Hey, just wanted to let you know that you can get a much better deal on a 2010 rx 350 with navigation at Ray catena Lexus in nj, here is what I got from them, I am also leasing:
Negotiated price:$42,000, which will make the following lease terms:
36 month at 10k/year, through Lexus bank,
$555 a month with tax already
No money down just first payment, bank fee($700) and registration fee, Total at signing just over $1500.
This is my second rx 350 through Ray Catena, always beats any price, let me know if you have more questions.

Tbartman.. that seems to be standard practice for the shippers. Not sure if mine was the same company, but my car was picked up on Saturday, and delivered on Monday. They ship them on multi-car trucks, not individually, so they collect the deliveries for a region in one place, and then send them out together.

Did you use this same company? Did you have any problems? I hired them at the recommendation of Lexus of Watertown without doing any research, but I looked today and their BBB rating is D- and their rating on epinions.com is 1/5! Lots of haters out there. I'm praying that my car gets here and is o.k.! I'm really nervous now!

Not sure if the negotiations work the same way on leases as they do with purchases, but you might be able to do better. People are getting discounts in the range of 14-15% of MSRP for purchases, even before the current Golden Opportunity promotion. Ray Catena for me was nowhere close on price when I bought my vehicle (although later on they claimed they would've beaten the deal that I got). If you haven't completed the deal, get quotes from some out-of-town dealers, and use them as leverage.

I don't remember the name of the company that IRA used for me ( I just paid them the money and let them handle it - that way they are responsible for it) - I will look it up when I get home in the evening. I am sure that apart from the delay, the vehicle would be fine.

Never having leased a vehicle ever, I don't know how that works. However, I think you should start from the negotiated "purchase price", and work from there, instead of starting from the monthly payments. What's the MSRP on the vehicle, and what's your "purchase price"? My guess is that the MSRP on your vehicle is around $44.5K, give or take a few hundred. The purchase price for that should be around 38K (again, give or take a few hundred). Use these to calculate your monthly payments, and see if what you are getting is a good price or not.

#3815 of 5880 HELP with lease
Jul 27, 2010 (5:58 am)
I am looking to lease an RX 350 AWD in the state of Wisconsin.
What is the money factor for this vehicle without nav (36 months, 10,000 annual mileage). Please assume top credit. This vehicle (that I am looking for) has an MSRP of $44,465 and includes the premium package, towing prep, heated seats, wood and leather wrapped steering wheel, backup monitor, remote start, wheel locks, cargo mat, and cargo net. What is the residual value (in %) as well? Are these numbers good through the end of July and then will they change? Should the money factor be the same regardless of where I lease it?
What is a GREAT price for this vehicle? PLEASE help as this is new to me!

Catena in Oakhurst telling me that they can't go lower than $42,921.00 on the $47,625.00 model. Any insight/suggestions? Also, were there any trade-ins/rebates/etc.? They are telling me that there is no way they let that car off the lot for $40,900.00. Thanks.
