Lexus RX 350, Car Buying, SUV
Oct 01, 2010 (4:50 am)
The 2010 inventory is going fast. Not much difference between 2010 and 2011 but a one year old car should have at least a $1500 spread or more between them at this time of the year. I was only offered Invoice on a 2010 model so I decline and bought a 2011.
Word on the street is that by Thanksgiving (less than 60 days away) the 2011 RX350 will be at invoice at many dealerships or invoice minus a few hunrded at our friendly Mass. Lexus dealerships.
I decided to take the plunge at invoice plus $300 because my wife wanted the car and they had the exact model, color and options we wanted.
Many thanks to those who posted on this forum. It took me a few months to make this purchase but I did not get gouged by the dealership.

Optional equipment was CP, EK, NV, PM, TO, V3, WU, and 3T on an AWD 350 with 18 inch wheels ( MSRP $48,259) for $41,000 from Ira lexas in mass. For some reason all the mass lexas dealers are selling there RX 350 alot cheaper then other dealers. The best I could do in the NY, CT, NJ, and PA was 42500. All the dealers were willing to sell there car under 42000 right over the phone. Got mine delivered to PA today.

Oct 02, 2010 (5:07 pm)
I am looking at a 2011 AWD RX 350 in Central NJ. Comfort, NAV, Prem, Tow, Wood Steering Wheel and Accy Pkg (Cargo Mat, Net, and Wheel locks) - Seems like their "B" package. With delivery - Total MSRP $47,985.
I was looking to hear what folks are paying early in the 2011 model year for this model. Do you highly recommend waiting to month's end to get best deal?

Can you tell me what features you got for that price? Is it AWD or FWD? I am about to buy an RX350 2011 in WI and they aren't dealing at all, so I am looking around the country for the best deal.

What is this $1000 coupon that you referred to? Does it have to do with transferring the car to another city/state?

I believe I got a good deal--I shopped every dealer from San Diego to LA. Longo in LA is known to have the best deals, but actually did much better at a dealer in San Diego. MSRP was $46K--paid $39,000. Key take aways of this deal--never work from MSRP--always work from invoice. Also remember invoice is not really a dealers invoice. For example--you need to determine what invoice is on each package--this is where dealers make their money. Comfort package MSRP is $2K; however, invoice is $1560. Dealer is now making $440--same goes for NAV, rims, etc... Because the 2010's are becoming limited I am not sure I could have done any better. The dealer would have sold this car to someone (for more money); however, they new I was buying that day and got to move a unit. Great car--my wife loves it. Lastly, for those who want to know--we got this for $2500 under invoice. Let me know if I can help. I have not seen a better deal on this package on this website; therefore, I think I got a good deal. Thanks for all who have posted--you helped us out!

rallo1, congrats on your purchase! Was 39k your out-the-door price, or were there TTL fees on top of it? Which dealer was it in SD?
#3982 of 5843 2010 RX 350 AWD
Oct 07, 2010 (3:48 am)
Received a quote for a 2010 RX 350 AWD from the dealer yesterday for 43k OTD. The deal includes comfort, navigation, premium and towing package. Do you think this is a good deal or should I wait? I tried looking for the invoice price in other websites including the TMV but everything seems to show a higher price than this quote. Not sure if those values are updated on a month to month basis.
Any help is certainly appreciated.

When you say OTD - do you mean including Taxes, Title. etc? I don't think you have much more time on the 2010s.
Via the Edmunds car quoting, I received a quote form Lawerence Lexus near Princeton - for a 2011 - same options as yours - total MSRP $47,985 for $44,885.
For a similiar 2010 - $42,838. Of course, this was my first real quote back - and he told me that this was bottom line - LOL! I know you can do better on the 2010s. I plan on getting pricing from 3 different dealers in my area to make sure I am doing the best I can. I will end up getting these in person - I am not totally bought in to phone quotes.
These quotes BTW are before taxes, etc. I did not ask what kind of doc feel that
they are also trying to extract.
I know I will end up paying a bit more for the newer 2011 - but as long as I know I am not getting ripped off.
