I bought an ES 350 in mid November 2013, in California.

I was deciding between an Acura TL; Infiniti G37X, or Lexus ES 350.

I started with the Acura dealer, because they opened at 9am, while Lexus not until 11am.

I then found out that the TL Special Edition doesn't come with navigation. The only way to get navigation was to get the TL regular with navigation. I didn't like the look of the TL regular as much, I liked both the interior and exterior of the Special Edition a lot more. And when it came down to negotiations, it ended up being more than I thought, almost as much as what I thought a Lexus would. So I said I'd think about it and went to the Lexus dealer next door.

At the Lexus dealer, I found out the only way to get the Mark Levinson audio package was to get a car that had every single other package in it too. When comparing the ES 350 with navigation vs the super premium everything ES 350, it would have been a $7000 difference at starting point. That was too much.

Once inside the ES350, I liked it enough and decided I didn't want to see the Infinit G37x, whose dealer would have been 20-30 miles away. I definitely liked it more than the Acura TL SE and regular edition.

They had a 2013 model with 46 miles on it.

Blind Spot Monitor; navigation; Premium Package with memory seats and mirrors; wood and leather trim; trunk mat and cargo net.

MSRP was $42,973.

The final negotiations were that they'd take $2000 off, so it started at $40, 973.

I took the pre-paid maintenance, but cancelled it about a month later, thinking I wasn't going to use the car as much during the 48 months / 50K miles to spend $1975 on service. I got a full refund on the pre-paid maintenance.

So minus the pre-paid maintenance, the out-the-door price was $45, 153.

Also, I had wanted to try Costco's fixed pricing, but the website was giving me errors the day before. And I wasn't sure at that time which car I wanted, as I was considering 2 other make/manufacturers.

But, I later found out I could have mentioned the Costco fixed pricing to the dealer, and they could have set it up. I'm not sure how much better that could have been. I'll try this option out next time and see.

If anyone has used it for this same year/make/model, how was it?
Not sure where you are but most in SoCal/NorCal are achieving anywhere from 10-15% off msrp. You should be able to do better than Costco "fixed" pricing with very little negotiation.

You should probably read through past posts in this forum/thread to determine that. One good thing is that you have found this forum and will be armed with a lot of knowledge next time you shop for a vehicle, whether it's a Lexus or something else. Another good thing is you bought a really great car - the ES350 is a great value in my opinion. If you are happy with the car and keep it for awhile, what kind of deal you got when you bought it will be less important when you sell it or trade it in.

Enjoy your new ES350!

Keyes quoted the following for me: 2014 ES 300h with MRSP of$46,585 which they're offering for ~$42k plus 2 years maint. Based on the deal they gave you, they could have gone lower for me.

You can get a new one for around $35k, that's without the crappy Nav system and with the better then leather Nuluxe. This would include the backup camera and park assist and backup alert and passing alert or whatever it is called.

Default Question about price

Hi All,

I am new to this forum and have never owned a Lexus before. I am getting a 2013 ES 350 with 30,300 miles on it for $30,280 without taxes, out of the door price is $32,500 from a Porsche dealer. I think the car has luxury package, navigation, blind spot monitoring, heated steering wheel and seats, power back sun shade. The car still has factory warranty for 20 months and another 19,700 miles. My question is that is it a good deal?? The car is not a CPO because it is a Porsche dealer. Any and all replies will be appreciated. Thank you.

I"m getting the exact same car without the luxury package with 17k miles for $32,200 (price + dealer fee) only considering im gonna export it to use overseas. looks like this seems to be the average price and most Lexus dealers ive talked to in my area are not willing to budge on price , they all say its "priced to market" whatever that means. They wouldn't even waive the dealer fee. Oh well im still shopping , looking to purchase by fri/sat.
