  1. I just purchased a 2022 NX450+ PHEV. Called dealerships from San Francisco to San Diego, found two that only had a $4,000 mark up. So I put money down to hold a car that was in transit at both places. Both dealerships said that I could choose accessories for the $4K markup. Awesome. One of the cars arrived sooner than the other, so I began negotiating that deal. I sent of list of desired accessories totaling about $3200, they approved $2,500 worth. In writing, the salesperson lists everything they are including in the $4K markup. Go to the dealership to purchase the car, and they tell me they will take $500 more off their $4k, if I trade my 2021 250UXh in. (So we are back to $3,000 of the $4K - fair). I am told that every thing but crossbars and accessory mount were installed earlier that day. Great 🙂 Now we go to finance. I have to pull out the email with the list and they forgot the pet divider - cool its added to the due bill. (pet divider, crossbars and activity mount). It is almost 1:00am when I leave finance, eyes crossed, and with an additional $10K of warranties and what will amount to a huge monthly payment. Next day, I start checking out the car in the daylight and it's missing mud guards, puddle lights, emergency kit, side moldings and wheel locks. I triple check. Then forward the email from the dealer that says what I'm getting. Take pictures of the accessories on the website, then of my car to show what is and isn't there. Response: you can come in and we'll give you a discount on those items, we are only including what is on the due bill as a courtesy. Do I push for those items? Does anyone know if they have to honor what they said in an email or? And do I need $10K in warranties on a car with 6 miles?
  2. Just purchased a new NX450+ on Friday night - 1am Saturday. I had planned on just getting the Luxury Care 2 or 3 year plan. I was not going to get the Tire and Wheel plan - because I'd like to get rid of the run flats asap. Nor was I ready to do an extended warranty - car had 6 miles on it. By 1am when I finally left finance - I had 5 year maintenance, 100k, extended warranty and Tire and wheel to the tune of an extra $10K AND I was encouraged to get the Lexus credit card at zero percent interest (still haven't seen any proof of that) to put more money down on the car due to the extra $10K. How did that even happen? Before I go and cancel all of these plans, I need to know if I really need them. I'd appreciate any input owner have: Lexury Care - do I need it and if so, for how long? Lexus Platinum Warranty - Do I have to buy it now? Can I buy it at 40K miles if I plan on keeping car for a long time? Warranty from other company? Tire and Wheel - Do I need this, if I replace all my run flats with AT Tires? Is it worth 3K?
