  1. I would not go against the manufacturer's recommendation, it's there for a reason - as someone posted, it may be fine in the short-term to use regular 87, but over time I believe it will degrade performance. I guess it depends on how long you plan to own the car. Considering I keep mine 8 years or longer on average, I sure don't plan to risk it. And as other posters have also said, the price differential amounts to a couple hundred dollars a year more, max...
  2. First post and just joined the forum. Seems like really great info on here so far. I bought a 2008 RX350 no Nav, stock 17" wheels, but tow package, heated seats etc, pearl white with black interior with approximately 90,000 KM on it (or about 56,000 miles). Not much room negotiating at the dealer, so ended up paying $26,000 plus 13% Ontario tax. Excellent condition, not much sign of wear and tear at all. Compared to many I looked at in the 2007-2009 range, the interior, exterior and under the hood all appeared mint. One of those deals where I would have loved to squeeze more out of the dealer, but we love the car, so we are extremely happy. Congrats Mike and welcome aboard! Was your car a Certified Pre-Owned from Lexus with the extended warranty? If it was and you consider I paid $1,250 more with navigation/blue tooth and 18" wheels, about 24K less miles, I think you did fairly well on the price...That 13% tax rate in Ontario is brutal though, ours is half that amount.
  3. Is it a Certified Pre-Owned? I'm guessing not with 88K as it would only give you 12K on the warranty...any ideas how many years you have until the hybrid battery has to be replaced? I heard it's a max of 8 years. Yes only 12k miles left, but from what I have seen and since I am a previous RX300 owner, I feel it should be a good car in the long run...As for the battery (hybrid) who knows, I see some pruis owners with over 400k miles and still going on original battery..Hey for paying less than half price, a battery would be bad, but still make the car worth the purchase....after all it lost over 24k in equity when I purchased.... Agreed - you cannot beat the deal on Pre-Owned vs. a new Lexus. I'm just wondering why it took me so long to figure it out...
  4. My CPO 2008 came with nav and camera...works like a charm!

  6. What did you pay for your Lexus...please include year, make amd model, mileage, color, condition, Pre-owned/Certified or new, and finance deal. If we all share on here, we can squeeze the dealer for the best possible price, so lets be honest about what we post. For example, I just purchased a pre-owned certified 2008 Lexus RX350 with Navigation/Blue tooth, tow package, heated seats and 18 inch tires. Silver color, light gray leather interior. Mileage was 32,150. After some hard negotiation, I paid $27,250 out the door, no dealer fees (excluding tax, tag and title). I received the additional 3-year or 100K warranty, plus an awesome finance rate through Lexus of 2.9%. Was this a good deal, bad deal, or average deal in your opinion? What was your deal?
