HEY DOTBOWELS..I REALLY WAS IN TOTAL DISBELIEF WHEN I READ YOUR 2013 REVIEW, SINCE I FELT JUST THE OPPOSITE! WE AS WELL TRADED IN A 2010 AND THE SEATS IN IT, WERE VERY HARD AND THE RIDE WAS VERY STIFF. THE 2013 IS SIMPLY AMAZING. SOFT CUSHY RIDE AND VERY COMFORTABLE SEATS. WE DIDNT DRIVE THE 2013 BEFORE WE BOUGHT IT EITHER, BUT WHAT A PLEASANT SURPRIZE. REMINDED US OF OUR PREVIOUS CADDYS.
I'D LIKE TO KNOW WHAT THEY (LEXUS)TELL YOU. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THERE ARE DIFFERENT SEATS, BUT HOW DO THEY DETERMINE WHAT CAR THEY PUT THE SOFT SEATS IN?
GOOD LUCK AND HOPE EVERYTHING GOES WELL.

THERE IS NO SUCH ANIMAL AS REAR WHEEL DRIVE. I DONT SEE LEXUS DOING 12% OFF THE MSRP. MAYBE 6%.
#5459 of 5862 RX 350 AWD Offer
Feb 06, 2013 (9:59 am)
I am in the market for an 2013 RX 350 AWD with Comfort, navigation and premium package. The MSRP is $49,545. The dealer's offer is $44,500. I can probably negotiate down to $44,000. Is this a good deal or should I wait for Model End Clearance?
I am not in a hurry to buy now.

That sounds like a very good deal to me. I think I would grab that one before they change their mind.
#5461 of 5862 19" Wheels
Feb 06, 2013 (12:16 pm)
In reviewing the 2013 RX350 on the Lexus site, the premium/luxury packages all come with the 19" wheel option. They include a footnote that says the low profile tires get less than 15,000 miles on a set. Is that right? If I choose the options that include these 19" wheels and tires will I be locked into replacing the tires every year?
Does anyone have first-hand experience with this?

If they offered $44,500, I certainly would not offer $44,000. I would go for $43,000. You can certainly do better than $44,000 on this specific package.
Also, refuse to pay any documentation fees. Insist !!

I offered $43000 but they said that they have never seen RX sell that low. Maximum lexus incentives they have seen is $2000 which happens in summer and by that time prices will be $500 up. There has been a price increase on RX this year.
They only have one RX in their lot with the "old price" in the color combination I want. I hope it doesn't get sold !
Other dealers in the area are not going lower than $46500.
Will $43500 be a good deal?

Yes, I would take $43,500. That's part of the reason to offer $43,000.
Another thing I have always said is to never believe anything a sales rep says. I mean nothing.
Depending on option packages it it certainly possible to get an RX350 for $43,000.
I always shop around but usually on the phone. I almost never walk into the dealership until we agree on a price over the phone.
Having said that, if you are in an area with one (or few) Lexus dealers, it makes negotiating difficult.
In my case, I shopped with 5 Lexus dealers.

Dealers are not an issue.. there are atleast 10 within 2 hr drive. I have talked to 4 so far.. and 3 of them quoted $46500-$47000. Only 1 quoted $44500. Also this includes destination and delivery charge.
Will try for $43000-43500. If it doesn't work, will try in July when 0.9% will be offered.
Thanks again for your advice !
