I see the discount for the base model is only 4000 on the website, any idea how much delivery credit to expect? Also, someone said to push 9% off the mrsp, is this realistic?
Below is from Richmond Hill Lexus.
The website claims it's a dealer offer, but it's actually from the factory.
You can easily hit 9% off MSRP when you squeeze additional discounts from the dealer.

Credits Up To $6,000*

Dealer Offer
RX 350 (F-Sport packages) receive up to $6,000 in credits. RX 350 (All Others) receive up to $5,500 in credits. RX 450h (F-Sport packages) receive up to $6,000 in credits. RX 450h (All others) receive up to $5,500 in credits.
$6,000 cash back
Offer only valid 1/03/2018 through 1/31/2018
Applies to select new 2017 Lexus RX 350 and RX 450h models.

I'm a jx35 (2013 qx60) owner and I have only great thing to say about it.

I have a the tech package with dvd for the kids.

For those who say its the worst choice.... Well did you really shop and compared the ride quality before saying so??

Mine is paid and i'm tinking about getting a new one. Rx does not compare. And mdx inside look cheaper.

It's not a sport car it's a luxury 7 seater suv.

I have not compared 2017 model... But in 2013, road noise was better than other brand, interior quality was better, 3 row accessibility and price.

If you want performance get something else.. But seriously.. How are you driving your car 7 days a week in traffic jam.. With kids at the back??

Also bullshit at the one saying 18l/100km... Mine never left sport mode. And its 13.4 l/100km... 12 l/100 km in eco mode... But way too boring and 12.8 in standard... This include citt driving and not much highway.... Its around 10 on the highway
I bought the 2017 QX60 and average 12.0 in standard mode. I am quite pleased with the comfort of the SUV. Best bang for your buck when it comes to a luxury 7 seater.

OP - great deal for premium and driver assist. You also have the option of putting in regular gas since it’s not mandatory.

+1 for QX60, RX350 is nice but will cost you more.
MDX is not luxury SUV.

Is this the awd model or fwd? That's really good fuel economy for that size of a car.

I just traded in a leased 2017 MDX for a 2018 XC90 T6 R-Design. Pick it up Thursday.

I’m done with Acura.

Congratulations, great choice you'll love the XC90 Thumbs Up Sign

The MDX must have been really bad if you traded it in so fast lol

It’s AWD. I believe that they only sell AWD in Canada. My previous car was a compact, so 12.0 was scary to me Grinning Face

Wow that's really good for a v6 awd SUV. I had a G35 coupe and it was doing nearly 13L

wow. didn't know the qx60 will go for that cheap. i always thought it was a 60K+ SUV. personally, i've been avoiding premium cars. i have a 2008 rdx and the suv is just a gas guzzler. on top of that, you have to pay premium gas. after this experience, i've been avoiding premium cars. Unfortunately, i haven't heard any good things with respect to gas milege on the qx60. however, my friend leased one recently and i thought it looked pretty nice.

i've been eying the cx9 for a long time because it looks like a very premium car without having to need premium gas. However, i don't think it goes for much cheaper than the qx60 quote that you received. sadly, i think we are going with a van instead...

The van is the most practical choice. SUV's are honestly one of the lamest cars on the road as majority are shit for space.

Let’s hope that the fuel consumption remains at 12.0L. I have only put on 2600 km’s.

I guess I'm spoiled with my average at 5.7L/100km after 20K km's combined :) Not bad for a 7 seater Thumbs Up Sign
