Right now Lexus is giving away RX350's so it will be interesting to see real world pricing on the new NX.

Lexus has been offering heavily subsidized leases on the RX over past few months. Figures like $299 per month, 24 month leases, nothing due at signing, with 12,000 mi per year.

Many current RX owners had expected a new RX for 2015. As Lexus has delayed the new RX, they are trying to hold onto the current RX customers and keep them from jumping ship at the end of their leases. I'm hoping this bodes well for some Lexus NX lease deals right out of the gate. Two 2014 RX 350's have recently been acquired in my family due to these blow out deals. Find another $44K vehicle at that price point; it's practically impossible.

I wonder if anyone here will bother waiting for year end models which they will as always be able to get a good deal on and probably deal with less issues since at that point a number of bugs should have been worked out.

@NXorable: I've been searching long and hard for the RX lease deal you mentioned above ($299/24 mo/12k/$0 drive off). Can you point me to a thread or post with further details on the deal? Thanks in advance!

I am going to look into buying a NX around the end of the year. I hear that is when the best deals happen. I'm not sure about leasing though. I just become wary of basically renting a vehicle. You don't get to own it in the end, which makes it the opposite of an investment. (Not that cars are ever good investments.)

Hi, I wish I could find a link to point you to. Have you tried speaking with your local dealer? The deal may not be available anymore. I quickly Googled and found this, which is somewhat close...wonder if you could negotiate that drive off.:

end of next year you'll have a chance, it's going to be a wait, but worth it if you actually can do that. What are you driving currently?

Speaking about the RX
it seems like we could see a concept of the next generation RX very soon at one of the upcoming auto shows.

I've found these deals don't really exist, they are just bait and switch deals. It may have been for one model on the lot with no options or a demo. As soon as you show up at the dealer they say they just sold that one but we have others available at only 4000 down and 500 per month. Just my experience.

Just purchased an NX200t at dealer cost from Smithtown Lexus. Deal is good until 1/3/15
Could you please share the details of the deal? That will help others looking for an idea of how much can be negotiated off the price of an NX at this time.

Welcome to the forum, and congrats on the NX!

leasing vs. buying

wether you lease or buy, a car is not an investment is a depresiation. I lease all the time, I have a lower payment. dont have to worry about warranty, I pay only for the depresiation of the car, ifi get in an accident I dont take the value depresiation since is not my car, i pay half the taxes as if I'd buy, I can right it off since I lease and the best is if I really really want it I can buy my lease out at the end. Lots more benefits of leasing.... And I get to drive car much nicer with substancial lower payment. =) just saying

Could have gotten the lease down to $420 if we did 9 MSD's but didn't want to part with the $3825 right now. Residual was 54% and MF of .00115


I thought it was a pretty good deal, what do you think?

Doesn't look like many people leased them! No leasing deals offered for their "Golden Opportunity" or whatever they called it?

Lease vs buy

I am sure this has been discussed before. I ALWAYS buy cars and keep them until I throw them out (20+ yrs). Nowadays technologies change so fast and especially with low interest rate I am thinking of leasing cars from now on (if I found the one I like at the ens of the lease I would have to option to buy it anyway). My thinking is that it would allow me to drive new cars with new technology all the time, (and no maintenance costs for 3-4 yrs?) , yes I could pay a little more monthly but I am buying the new technology. I am sure there are pros and cons Please help me think thru based on your experiences :laugh:. Regards

It's really down what you want and what your financial situation is. I'm always for buying my cars because they last me for years to come. Last one lasted me around 10 years and by the time I got rid of that cd playing rust bucket, everyone had all the newest gadgets but that's fine. I'd prefer to be outdated than lease a car.

I 've purchased ALL of my cars and keep them until they have very little value in them (less than $1000). I am approaching 65 and let assume that I would live until 80... and lets assume that I am going to lease cars every 4 yrs ,i.e. that means I could do it 4 times... that's why I am debating buying a car for the next 15 yrs or lease a car every 4 yrs. I am pretty sure someone already went thru the calculations and lơok at the investment loss between buying a car for 15 yrs vs leasing every 4 yrs. Please share your thoughts... also, at the end of the lease, I assume that you have to pay the normal wear-n-tear like tires? Correct ?
