    Hi everyone! This is my first post here...

    Last Friday, I purchased a new 07 LE 4cyl w/ moon roof, auto-dimming mirror/compass, rear bumper aplique, and carpet mats. I love my new car!

    I just wanted to see if what I paid was a good deal. I traded in an 04 Camry payoff of $11900, blue book around $11500 (subtract $1k if you're talking dealer book), and the dealer gave me $12650 (with some elbow grease on my part). I also put $500 down. OTD total with trade TT&L was $21134.

    Good deal?

    Your trade in value was excellent. Considering the fact that your LE sounds like fairly loaded with optional stuff, it looks like you got a good deal on your new car too. Hope your experience with your new car is a good one. And welcome to the EDMUNDS FORUMS. The best automotive forum in my opinion. :D

    I am in search of used Camry LE / XLE. Last week I saw 2005 Camry LE (selling by owner) which has 37K on it. Seller said he got an offer for $14,200. Outside the car is in good condition. Looks like the car doesn't have any options.

    After spending time on research here are my findings:

    Edmunds suggested TMV
    Trade In: $11823
    Private Party: $13096
    Dealer Retail: $14138

    KBB values are:
    Trade in: $12600/$11775/$10270 (Excellent/Good/Fair)
    Private Party: $14,485/$13,555/$12,315(Excellent/Good/Fair)

    What do you guys think I should offer for the car. And also he told me that he purchased a package from the dealer for $5000 which includes free coupons for up to 75000 miles and scratch protection, paint protection blah, blah...etc. He said he will prorate the package and give it to me. I haven't entertained that I am interested in this package. Is this package transferrable? Do you guys know anything about such a package existed?

    I am in central jersey area. Any recent new Camry purchases in Central Jersey? Can you please post price for XLE?

    By the way I am relatively new to this forum.

    Thanks

    I am looking to get an LE in MA. Want heated side mirrors, remote start, moonroof. Anyone have a good lead. I am in Northern MA and a NH dealer is suggesting a lease and then purchase. My last Camry went 240k miles and then my son put 20k on it. We tend to hold onto our vehicles. I am trading a 02 Sonata that we are not very happy with. Any leads appreciated.
  • I also purchase a TCH from Team on 3/31/2007. I purchased it from Phil Selby. I had a great experience with no pressure sale. I got a fully loaded TCH for $27,500 (leather, DVD, sunroof, etc). I can provide more details if you want to see them. I found the best tactic was the inventory of other dealerships when discussing price. I did go to Faulker who quoted $29,000 for the same TCH. I also went to Conicelli but they used pressure sales tactics and I walked away. They were willing to sale the car at invoice but I did not like how they went about the sale.

    I recently bought a toyota camry LE. and when i bought the car, the price included the price of the auto-dimming mirror and a remote start.
    I just got my car back with one of the accessories, the remote start installed today. Thats when I noticed the part installed wasn't the original toyota accessory and was a cheap third party spare, but when the sale was made it was based on the toyota accessory list prices. I dont know if i was cheated or this the norm. Any advice would help.

    thanks in advance,

  • Bought a Camry LE 4cyl Auto for $20,500 out the door from Crystal Auto Mall, NJ. Metallic Grey exterior with Ash interior. Base LE model with floor mats. No moonroof.

    Break-up:
    Invoice (including destination): 18,837.38
    Tax @ 7%: 1,318.62
    NJ Tire Tax: 7.50
    Registration/Title: 47.50 (transferred my plates, so cost about $200 less)
    Data processing, documentation fee: 289.00

    Total: 20,500

    Not sure if this could be considered a great deal, but I am happy. The car is on its way to the dealership, and I should get it in 3-5 days.

    Here's a detailed breakdown of your TCH costs.

    $22,794.00 (true dealer invoice)
    524.00 (Reserve or "Holdback")
    262.00 (Wholesale financial reserve)
    620.00 (Destination charge)
    285.00 (TDA - Advertising fee)
    126.00 (dealer price carpet/trunk mats)
    39.00 (dealer price wheel locks)
    24.00 (dealer price heated mirrors)
    --------------------------------------------
    $24,674.00 (true dealer invoice cost w/ options)
    225.00 (unaccounted)
    $24,899.00 (your cost)

    The given pricelist didn't add up to "dealer" invoice. Are you sure that you didn't get the alarm system thrown in or something? All in all looks like you did fair.

    On a side note, in some situations buyers are able to get the dealer to eliminate holdback and destination charges, which in reality when all is said and done just inflates the real price of the vehicle.

    620.00 (Destination charge)
    547.00 (TDA - Advertising fee)
    126.00 (dealer price carpet/trunk mats)

    Advertising fee is higher than NJ,other things is same, true dealer invoice is lower than Edmunds, Maybe Edmunds not included Advertising fee?

    I didn't realize that the advertising fee would or could vary that much. Here in Los Angeles it is $285. Also I believe that Edmunds(and most others) include "Holdback" and "Wholesale financial reserve" in their dealer invoice price. Thus $22,794 + $524 + $262 = $23,580.

    Thanks so much for the info. Can you provide more details please? I went to Conicelli and I had a bad experience just like you did. I was wondering if $27,500 was the final price you paid (I'm wondering if taxes and other fees are already included in that price). Also, did you get other optional items in addition to the ones you mentioned? I was thinking about options like carpet floor/trunk mat set, wheel locks, heated mirrors, etc... Any additional information you can provide is greatly appreciated.
  • sweet, i would like to know if that is an LE AUTOMATIC? also if you got any good financing deal/APR? If you had any trade in and how was your experience with them?
  • yes, it is Camry LE 4cyl Automatic. i got offers of 6.24% from Chase, and 6.5% from Capital One, but Toyota offered 5.9% which is the lowest APR offer i got (48 month term). i did not have a trade-in.

    my experience at Crystal was good. the sales person and his manager were both very professional and friendly. we met the finance guy as well, and he tried to sell the extended warranty for $1400+ (7yr/100k), but i told him that i have a quote of $880, and he said he should be able to match it when we buy the car this week. will post details after i buy it.
  • Hey, congratulations on your new car, thanks for being so helpful. and yes u have the best deal so far in NJ. on a plain LE. (since i'd been checking this forum since oct 06 That's the one i am planning to get on RED. Although i've seen 20300 in NY, they never posted the dealer name or any other detail. with the warranty, according to Edmunds, and other websites is always better to wait at the end of your warranty, since they will always offer you the best deal then. Besides, camry's are the best along with the accords. so i don't beleive you will need it. I bought on my third car (which was a mazda), and never used it. these cars are great.
  • do you know how much did you pay for extended warranty? the lowest quote i have is from Midwest Toyota of Hutchinson (7yr/100k) for $880.

    i know camry's are excellent cars, but $880 for 7 years comes to about $11 per month. definitely worth peace of mind!
  • well, remember, those warranties ar not always "full warranties" and do not cover every problems. beside the warranty on the car is already bumper to bumper 3 yrs, and major issues (engine and transmission) for 5, in other words unless it covers bumper to bumper you are paying $880 for only 2 years which are 36.36 per month or 880 for 2 years. That is why i would not buy another warraty (due to past experiences). once you come to the dealer the first thing they will say " that is'nt covered." but again as you said with all and all for a camry, i think still a good deal!

    looks like PA Advertising fee is also $285, why WA is so high? :mad: Dealer offer me $150 over their "cost", but sales guy seems not very eager to get this deal done. Maybe he not get enough commissions?
