Default Ultra is $65,000 in Canada

I have the mid-level model in Almond with Cashmere interior. I wanted Amber Pearl and Cashmere but the colour choices in Canada are very limited. Amber Pearl only comes with a black interior. This car cost me $54,000 in Toronto, Canada with all the taxes. The Ultra is $11,000 more and I already have a GPS and don't have hearing sensitive enough to truly appreciate the Mark Levinson. I am happy, however, that so many of my colleagues in the Forum are able to enjoy the Ultra at more affordable prices. Canadian currency is worth 89 cents US but the difference in pricing is not justifiable. Lexus Canada is price-gouging.

Thumbs up Ordered!

Just got back from ordering my new ES350. There isn't one to be had on the lot, so I had to order from Lexus Japan. If there is something coming similar to what I've ordered, they'll let me know and I can decide at that time to take it, or wait for mine.

I agree with Brio that we are paying a lot for these vehicles in Canada compared to what our Southern neighbors pay, but what can you do? Don't pay, don't get...it's pretty simple. I chose to buy one. Here in Alberta, they are listing at $56,500 including everything (freight, PDI, registration, etc.) EXCEPT for GST for the Ultra.

I got the loaded Ultra, Ruby Red with black interior, all weather mats, and XM satellite for $56k + tax CDN. Perhaps not the best deal, but with low supply and high demand, the market is dictating how far they are willing to move.

Now, the painful wait begins...

Vandam - got a message from our former Lexus sale associate that an Ruby UL is coming to town this week. Why not give him a shout; no need to wait 4-6 weeks for this one.

Redefined...I appreciate the heads up, but I really don't want to fool around with cross-border shopping etc. Plus, I made an agreement with my dealer here in town, and I don't want to break the deal we made. I would like to build a long term relationship with them.

Regards,
Vandam

Your price sounds reasonable compared to what I was quoted for an Ultra in Toronto two months ago. Hope you enjoy the car.

Default Finally, I picked up mine!

Finally, I picked up mine on Tuesday(7/11/05).

2007 ES350
Clear white / light grey interior
Premium plus package with NAVI with back up camera (No ML)
and ETC...

Here’s the car

(No color correction applied except levels. Border was de-saturated and blurred.)

Speical thanks to "amf1932" and "jeffofla"!
I decided to go with navi after reading their thread and I absolutely LOVE it now!

So far, NAVI and Bluetooth are the most favorite features of my car. Bluetooth works so much better than my sisters' BMW 750li (No echoes and delays).

Used to drive a 1998 Honda Accord for 9 years-

Default Love my car!

Got it in May. Has everything except the "radar" cruise control and parking assist. Would have got those, too, but was told you have to special order them and wait 3 months.
Anyway, love it!
Aquamarine and grey interior
Dealer added on chrome wheels and paint and interior protection stuff.
Previous to buying the car, I was on a waiting list for a blue 2006 Prius...for 7 months! I finally gave up. I know I will enjoy the comfort of the ES for years to come, longer than the Prius.
Drove a '98 Mustang GT convertible, sport edition, red with tan roof, before this car. Sold it to a neighbor - she is very happy, too!
I'm getting about 23mpg, with a combo of highway and street driving.
Love the nav
Love the bluetooth
Love the display showing current mpg (althought it seems a little high)
Love having my iPod connected in the armrest to the stero
Never use the voice commands
Love the rear sunshade
LOVE the color - get lots of compliments!

If you see another ES350 driver, be sure and wave - we are a small club!
Here's a pict:

2007 Smokey Granite Mica

Picked it up yesterday afternoon, what a car. I am very pleased with the "fit and finish" of this car and the ride is fantastic!! It's stock with 17" seven spoke wheels, nice, but I do like the polished chrome ten spoke. Has Navigation , rear sunshade, ect.
Previous car 2002 Acura RL.
Got this one for my wifes birthday, she loves it.
