So purchasing outright seems to make the most sense for me. I hadn't paid much attention (Driving to damn much), but my 2008 Avalon (purchased 10/2009) has 65,000+ miles on it, in just over 16 months, and a few long trips coming up. I guessing at this rate, I'll have about 85 - 90,000 miles on it when it turns 2 years old. WAY to many miles per year to lease ... Read More
Ok, so they aren't the same car, but here's what I'm up against. I put on 35,000+- miles a year, my 2008 Avalon Touring edition (Purchased in 2009) has 65,000+ miles on it. my local Toyota dealer is offering me a 2011 Avalon Limited Edition in Pearl White at a very good price, and now a friend is offering her 2007 Lexus LS 460 with 42,000 miles on it for about ...

My parents are visiting me in the Florida panhandle in their 2008 LS460. This is my dad's 5th Lexus and he stated clearly, his last. At purchase, the radio reception was horrible. After multiple dealer visits, they replaced the receiver module in the dash, after waiting weeks for the parts. A dead battery a couple months ago was blamed on a dome light being left on, although the doors supposedly close ... Read More
I'm looking for a class-action law suit for the 2008 Lexus LS460. Please reply if you have seen this information on many website. Thanking you in advance for your kindness and cooperation concerning this matter.
Have had my 2007 LS in many times for this problem. They always give me the same answer. No service bulletins and nothing shows on their computer. Cannot duplicate the problem. Evidently, they have known it was a problem for a long time. Foreign material? Who are they trying to kid. These are valve springs, not fuel injectors. Isn't it interesting that they will not recall 2009/10 LS models. When exactly ... Read More
My LS 460 HAS BEEN IN THE SHOP 4 TIMES FOR THIS WIND NOISE! NO MATTER WHAT THEY DO IT DON'T GET ANY BETTER. MY NEXT STEP WILL BE A LAW SUIT. IT DONT MAKE SENSE TO PAY OVER 70TH DOLLARS FOR A LEMON. I HAVE DRIVEN LEXUS SINCE 1994 BUT I WILL NOT BUT ANOTHER UNLESS THEY MAKE THIS RIGHT.
We have a 2008 460 LS which sounds like a diesel. The noise began approx. 3000 miles. On our third visit to Lexus for service, the service manager acknowledged the noise. He stated that this was a common problem with the pump and injectors. They stated to us that they do not know why some 2008s have the problem are not. They are certain that there is nothing wrong with the ... Read More
I just bought a 2009 LS SWB, RWD. Sticker was $66,034 I paid $58, 800. You can easily take off around 10% off the sticker. I am in Maryland and bought the vehicle from a dealer in Manmouth, New Jersey. Big dealer with lots of inventory. My local dealer in Maryland was selling me a used 2008 model with 13, 500 miles for the same price. SK
Hi richz. Here's the information that you're looking for. Lexus Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2009 LS 460 with 12,000 miles per year are an unattractive .00285 and 44%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its top aka "Tier 1+" credit tier. Lexus is not currently providing any cash incentives on the 2009 LS. I don't think that ... Read More
According to Edmunds’ TMV pricing, the 08 Ls is already selling over 17k off the MSRP. I got a 08 RX 400H in July for my wife from Cherry Lexus in South Jersey with only 3.5k off the MSRP, now the same car sells 6-7k off! I wish I wouldn’t had gotten my 08 535xi and 750Li earlier last year from the BMW right next door to the Lexus; the car ... Read More

"On December 2nd, Lexus raised its dealer cash incentive on the 2008 LS 460 from $4,000 to $6,000" heh heh, thanks for the info. I know about the $4000 rebate but did not know that Lexus raised it to $6000. Look like dealer is making out o.k. I think the incentive is being used for lease as well as purchase, otherwise dealer will loss money on the discount on my car. ... Read More

Lexus of Albuquerque, NM had two Black on Black, 2008 LS460s left this past Sunday. They are loaded at $72K and $76K if memory serves me correctly. On Halloween, I purchased a white 2008 LS460 without Mark Levenson, but with Nav. MSRP was $68,700 and traded in a 2006 LS 430 with 15K miles. Good Luck on your quest.
2008 Lexus LS 460 is $950 incluyding tax
Hi tasl. I am sure that either myself or another community member would be happy to work up a sample lease payment on the car that you are interested in for you. However, in order for us to do so, we need you to provide the full MSRP and approximate selling price of the car that you are interested in. You can look up this car's MSRP and True Market Value ...

Here is the first info I have found about the 2009 model: blogs.cars.com/kickingtires/2008/09/lexus-ls-460-ge.html Nothing new except AWD option.
Does anyone think it is appropriate for Lexus to release the 460 without checking the wind noise problem on the driver's side? That is very "unLexus-like". I have had my 460 for about 3 months now and it still boggles my mind that I have to put a duct tape on a >$70K vehicle to avoid the whining noise!!!! Yikes, Lexus needs to do something fast to avoid eroding the customer ... Read More
I want to buy a new 2008 LS460 (SWB). I want a black exterior. Prefer a cashmere or light interior but will accept gray. I have zero interest in any options except the Comfort Plus package (to get the rear seat side airbags - I have small children). I'm in Dallas, but can go elsewhere for the car. I'm in no rush at all - I can easily wait 6 months ... Read More
Hi oghowie. You never mentioned how long you want to lease this car for or what mileage allowance you need. For now I will assume that you are interested in a 36 month lease with 15,000 miles per year. Let me know if you want something different. According to the latest information that I have seen, Lexus Financial Services' current buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 ... Read More

Posted this on both the BMW 535xi and Lexus LS 460 forums Would like any advice in decision between buying a BMW 535xi which pros are 4 wheel drive, lower cost, better for Minnesota weather. Versus a Lexus LS 460 which is bigger, nicer interior, rear wheel drive, 99 on consumer reports, reliable, more room in the cabin. Is the wind noise of the LS460 a big problem - did it ... Read More

The wind noise issue was a problem on some SWB models and mostly early on in the production. However, I have heard of a few problems even later. I believe that Lexus has found a fix for those that have had a problem. I can tell you this much. Both ljflx and myself have had zero wind noise problem. It is incredibly quiet. We both have the LWB. What a car!! ... Read More
Based on current Lexus Financial money factors, residuals and assuming a cap cost around $2500 over invoice (based on a vehicle that MSRP's at around $69k) you're looking at between $950-$1000/mo with drive offs only. Again, this is just a ballpark... and it's assuming a base model with no additional items such as chrome rims, window tinting, etc. If you have an exact car picked out and know the MSRP, I ...

Hi sprinkler13. A 48 month lease of this car is a much better idea than a 60 month lease for a number of reasons. First, Lexus' special lease money factors are only available for up to a maximum of 48 months. Also, 5 years is a long time to be committed to one vehicle. A lot can change over that period of time. You could want a new vehicle because your ... Read More
Hello roman7. In the areas that I have seen Lexus' December to Remember lease program for, Lexus Financial Services' buy rate lease money factor and residual value for a 36 month lease of a 2008 LS 460 L with 15,000 miles per year are .00230 and 50%, respectively for consumers who qualify for its Tier 1+ credit tier.

In the areas that I have seen Lexus' new December to Remember lease program for, Lexus Financial Services' December to Remember buy rate lease money factor for all 2008 LS 460 trim levels is .00230 for leases up to 48 months. This car's residual values vary depending upon how it is equipped, the length of the lease, and its mileage allowance. If you let me know what these variables ... Read More
Hello Carman! Can you tell what's a money factor in Colorado for 36 or 48 month with 12K or 15 K per year for customers with tier 1 credit on Lexus LS 460 L 2008? Your answer will help a lot! Thank you! :)
Hi scotomata. .00295 is an attractive lease money factor for this model right now. This is much lower than the factors that I have seen being offered by Lexus Financial Services. I wonder if the dealer that you are working with is running your lease through an independent bank instead of LFS. Do you know? Lexus Financial Services' allows consumers to buy down vehicles' money factors by making additional security deposits. ... Read More
You're very welcome, jrunco. I am glad that you enjoy this discussion so much. Lexus is not currently providing any lease support on the 2008 LS 460. That means that if you want to lease one through Lexus Financial Services' right now, you will have to use its standard lease program. I believe that LFS' buy rate standard lease money factor varies somewhat by region, but it should be around .00275 ... Read More
Being offered a 2008 LS 460 with MF of .00295 with a residual of .44 for 48 months. Is this the current best Lexus offer? Can you also buy down this money factor with multiple security deposits?

I read with great interest of the 'wind noise problem'. I am getting ready to lease (3 yrs) a 2008 LS/460 (this will be the 11th Lexus in my family over the years). I've been an LS driver since 1990 and truthfully noise was never a problem. I've even had a client once ask me if my LS was electric! - it was so quiet So, is there a problem with ... Read More
Speaking of poor service, let me tell you about Pohanka Lexus. I placed an order on July 5th, for a 2008 LS 460 SWB. At that point, the sales person explicitly told me, "you will have the car late/September or early October." A few weeks ago in Mid September I inquired about the delivery date of my car. The Sales Mgr. has no idea, does some research and comes back and ... Read More
I don't know how they fixed it on the assembly line. Since I never had the noise, I really don't know where it was coming from. I've read that it was coming from the outside mirror. I've also read that Lexus dealers are installing laminated glass on earlier SWB's, but to me this is unfortunate because it simply masks the noise rather correcting the cause of it. My LS 460 SWB ...

Gary, please keep us posted because I am very interested in hearing about your experience. I just ordered mine two weeks ago because I wanted a specific color combo and specific options, including the Pre-Collision and Dynamic Cruise Control (which appears to be non-existent in cars sent to the Northeast). The dealer told me 3-4 months which puts it in the June/July time frame. I was thinking myself if I should ... Read More
OAC - It was actually $69K. I made a typo there. It had the ML, Nav, comfort package and the parking assist. Don't remember exact figure but was something like $69,750 give or take. Most of the SWB cars are coming over equipped like this, at least over here. I went there early this morning because they get very busy on a Friday and I had each car for about 25 ... Read More
So far we have second-hand (journalist) statements, who say that Lexus reps have told them AWD LS 460's are in the near future, but there is no guarantee that the LS 460 AWD will come out for the 2007-2008 time frame. That is the earliest possibility... Good luck on your decision!

But, a consolation is that the MY 2008 releases will include AWD on the 460, and maybe Lexus will permit the sport trim by then as well... That's what I thought. If I had to guess now, I would say my next car will be an '09 AWD SWB LS460, with Sport/Touring package if available. By that time my current LS will be 4 years old, and prices on the AWD ...

Anyone know if we will be able to get those on SWB? Unfortunately, as the current packaging stands, this option is NOT available for the SWB trim But, a consolation is that the MY 2008 releases will include AWD on the 460, and maybe Lexus will permit the sport trim by then as well...
Some interesting information from Automotive news, particularly in regards to the SUVs: IS: "A convertible was expected to debut when the coupe arrived.
