#4907 of 5851 Buying 2012 Rx 350 Today I Need to know am I paying too much?
May 08, 2012 (4:44 am)
Hi everyone, I was at Woodfield Lexus last night, and I looked at the 2013 Rx 350. I was not impressed in the style of the bumper and the new red that is coming out. So I decided to purchase the Matador Red with Parchment, loaded up with navi, awd, MSRP is around $49,5xx.00. They are giving me the truck for $500.00 over invoice which is the new invoice, and basically coming out to $46,985.00. I have no other Lexus to qualify for the Loyalty, however I do have an 08 Acura Mdx, which that $1,500.00 discount ended a few months back. At any rate the new finance rate is 0.9% for 60 months and I want to take advantage of that, however I am wondering am I paying too much for the car? They have the color I want but not the 19" wheels which I am willing to live with. HELP! I am going to buy this car maybe tonight or tomorrow at the latest. It is an AWD also and every dealer I talked to around here is all saying the same $500.00 over? I see people on this site getting great deals and I want that too. I appreciate any responses to this issue.

Not sure what the sell price since they simply gave me the quote.
The dealer is Tri County in Little Falls, NJ.

that is correct. I also got another offer without the park assist for $39000 so it's about $44k out the door (tax is 7.75), not sure if I can go lower than this?

I just bought a 2012 with AWD and Nav yesterday. With auto start and Mud Flaps added on as well I paid $45K. I thought I could have done better than that had I known that Acura just came out with major incentives on the 2012 MDX.
I negotiated the price on Saturday and found out 20 minutes before picking up the car on Monday about the MDX incentives.
My only advice to you is that the 2013 has so many more great features. If you can get them to give you a 2013 for the price you have above I would make that deal. But there is more room on the 2012's.
My dealer had over 20 2012's on his lot along with another 10 to 12 2013's, which the salesman did not want me to see. That helped me get the car down to the $45K with the additional accessories.

I'm guessing that price is for a 2012.
As of right now, your pretty much on your own when it comes to getting the best price for a 2012.
Everything is so crazy right now, IMO there are only a few dealerships in certain areas like Cal that are willing to give under invoice deals for the 2012 Lexus.
Many of the below invoice deals you are reading are from dealers who still had rx 2012 that were purchased by the dealer prior to mid Feb, when the invoice price went up around 2k.
I would email around 2-3 dealers even if it means contacting a dealer 80 miles or so away and try to get the best deal you can. Usually the bigger/ higher volumn the dealer, the better the deals on the 2012 RX
Now onto the 2013 RX
From what I have researched dealers are only selling the 2013 for MSRP. There has been some feelers by some, who knew some dealers by name and were able to try to get a oral deal (nothing in writing for a 2013 rx 350) at 1k below MSRP if there is inventory on the lot come sept. But again, its nothing in writing and based off the assumption that by sept, the dealer will be able to discount them more.

I just bought the truck this evening, different dealer with the package I really wanted which was Heads up display, also the 19" wheels, picked it up for $500.00 below invoice. Im sure I left money on the table but I have looked and this was the only one in my area with the color combo and package I wanted. Also the 0.9% helped out too. Thanks all for the replies. Get this the finance manager would not sell me the warranty for $100.00 over invoice, I told him this what I aways pay he told me he would not sell it for that much period and let me purchase the truck without one. I am surprised that his ego got in the way of his company making money and himself. Some of these guys should not be in the postions they are in.

Does anyone have any guidance as to how much negotiating room there is for a 2012 RX450h with MSRP of 56,120? Also any idea as to when the 2013 RX450h will be arriving at dealers?

Hi, I am thinking of buying a new 2012 RX 350. It has AWD, does not have Nav, but has the parking assist. Everything else standard, nothing too fancy. What is a fair price you would pay? Dealer wants 41 but we are concerned that we can get a better price in a few wks/months with the 2013's coming out now? THANK YOU!!

I'm looking into purchasing a 2010 RX350 AWD. I'm wondering if I should hold out on the purchase until the 2013 rx 350 comes out in July. Do you think there will be a be a markdown and how much? Thank you!!!
