2013 and Earlier - Toyota Camry Prices Paid and Buying Experience

  • Hi all,

    One of my friends just bought a Camry SE 2012 4 cylinder for 23700 including tax/TTL from a local dealership here in SoCal. I was wondering if he paid a good price for it because I am thinking about going to the same dealership to see if I can get the same deal if not even better than he did. Local tax rate is 8.75%, not sure what title and license is. My friend said Tax/TTL altogether is roughly 10% of purchase price when all is said and done.

    The 2012 Camry SE he purchased came with a panel display for radio and hands free phone interface w/o GPS. He said the trim came standard with Alloy wheels, bluetooth, fog lights, keyless entry with security system. He negotiated with a fleet manager that threw in power seats, the floor & trunk mats, and compartment netting for the trunk.

    I used the Edmunds true market value calculator and it said 22,398 is what it should cost for my area. Invoice price is 22,421. MSRP Price is 24,645. Not sure if that figure includes Tax/TTL though.

    Any information/tips/advice or help will be much appreciated. Thanks

    I got LE (with power seat + mat/carpet) for $21.9K OTD in SoCal. The MSRP on the car was $24095 which doesn't include TTL but covers destination charges. TTL is a bit lower than 10% of the sale price.
    $750 Toyota/Edmund rebate brought the price down to $21.15K OTD. I think it is a decent deal. I could have down better (by $600) if willing to drive 100 miles, but decided not to do so.

    Hello OCBMW

    This is the same car I want to purchase. It seems most LE models have power drivers seat and mats.

    Its OK to share the dealer in SoCa. where you bought it. Also what dealer was $600 less that was 100 miles away.

    The other cars that are interesting are Sonata, Optima, Altima. Did you
    look at these cars?

    Thanks for your information. looking forward to your response.

    thanks

    Hi,
    i recently bought SE in chicago for 24600 OTD(8.25 tax). I bought it with moon roof, power seats, mats and dealer installed remote start(without remote start i was quoted 24300)... The price is without any student/military rebate. i have sent the edmunds rebate and waiting for it.... if it goes thru then the price will come down to 23850...
    i would recommend to get online quotes from all the dealers and then try to negotiate with ur lowest quote.. in chicago most of the dealers were ready do beat any quote by 200$... gud luck...

    If you already signed up for it, you need to check your email to find out about it. Otherwise it's already expired.

  • habhavsarhabhavsar Posts: 12
    Anyone has any experience on prices paid in NJ? I am looking for 2012 Camry SE (no options) and wondering if anyone got a great deal recently on this model? Please share your experience and out of door prices paid.

    Hi OCBMW

    We wanted to know if you could provide the info. about the dealer where you purchased your car and the other dealer 100 miles from here that has the camry LE for $600 less.

    thanks
  • ocbmwocbmw Posts: 31
    check the previous posts, I already shared it with you.
    Good luck.
  • Thanks ocbmw for all the info. Now I have a better Idea of what kind of price I can start and end up with.
  • Hi kfernando,

    Congrats, sound like you got a really sweet deal. I'll definitely try and see if I can do as well as you did over here in SoCal. I appreciate the info and advice very much. The info gives me a better idea of what to ask for at the price range I am looking at.

    Thanks for all your help!
  • Hi habhavsar,

    I have been asking as many places and people as I can to get the best deal possible. It takes some elbow grease and a lot of research. . So I was trying to see if I can save as much as possible and get a good deal in the process.

    Just gather as much information/advice as I can to compare prices from different locations and make a more informed decision.

    Thanks for your reply

    Thanks

    After searching for car buying websites this one seems
    different in many positive characteristics. The priority
    seems to be confidentiality for the buyer.

    Anyone use it? carwoo.com

    good luck

    Just got the revised internet quote from one of the dealer in north ,CA

    Camry XLE 4 cyl
    conv pkg
    leather pkg
    navigation entune

    msrp 29655
    quoted price 26388(incl dest chrg) + ttl

    Not confident if this is a good price..was thinking about 26000 + ttl...any opinions please?

    Please refer to my post # 9355. I bought a very similar configuration with windows tint, mud guards, side molding & bumper protector for $27,200 drive out. This includes $1000 grad rebate and $500 Toyota rebate. I think you are paying more. Push him more to reduce the price.
  • t_c1t_c1 Posts: 4
    Thanks manchurian. Appreciate your response. Infact i was looking at your post only earlier to get an idea about the price quoted to me and thought it is close to the price what you got..my price doesnt contain grad/toyota rebate. I am not eligible for that. Toyota rebate - i am not sure if it is still available.

    your price 27200 + 1500 (rebate i don't have this) - 1900 (your tax) - approx 400 (your addons, guard, tint molding, bumper) = 26400 ( ~26388 price quoted to me)

    Does this makes sense? please let me know if i messed up calculation anywhere.. but frankly, i am not sure what price should i target at this moment..may be 26000 + ttl??

    If the doc fee is the dealer documentation fee, it is WAY to high. I never pay more than $100. This is all profit to the dealer and $700 is crazy. Most dealers will charge freight and setup or delivery fee. Going off the MSRP it look like you got a great deal.

    I also live in Mass and am shopping around for an XLE. My last car I used truecar.com. They will give you a price from 3 dealers in your general area. You may need to drive a bit to buy and get service from a local dealer. The price includes Delivery but not the Documentation fee. What's great is that this is the actual price with no dickering. My last car was below invoice.
    My best price for a 4 CYL XLE, cloth seats with no extras except mats and wheel locks was $23,438 including Destination but not doc fee or sales tax, which is below invoice.
    I would highly recommend this no hastle way to shop.
  • Wow, you got a great deal. What was the price they started with and was it a struggle to get this price of 25K ?
  • habhavsarhabhavsar Posts: 12
    Wow that's a great deal. What is the name of the dealer and who was the sales person? How much was their gap insurance if you financed? Thx

    I was quoted the following for a new Camry:

    Retail value: $27,585

    Moon roof, convenience package, driver power seat, floor mats, and navigation

    after negotiations adjusted price $25,400 plus ttl

    then I was offered their paint protection plan and tire and rim protection for $994

    total otd price is 28,400

    Is this a good price?

    Did you have a trade in?
  • cpl2usacpl2usa Posts: 18
    no. i don't have any trade in. I have paid $25000 + 7% NJ tax + title.
  • cpl2usacpl2usa Posts: 18

    I got internet quotes in June from different NJ dealers and couple of PA dealers close to Princeton. The best quote i got from internet is $25500 + doc fee. Because there is no cap on doc fee in NJ, dealers are asking $300 to $400 doc fee. I thought $400 doc fee is insane. In, PA max doc fee that dealers can charge is $125 (state law). I drove to couple of dealers in NJ and got best in-person quote of $25000+ $400 doc fee. Then, I went to this dealer in PA and told him that if he beats the price of $25000, i will buy the car. He agreed for $25000.

    Hi All,

    Once again thanks to all the people who replied to my earlier post last week. I really appreciate all the help and advice. Just wanted to see how I did on my purchase running it by you guys/gals.

    So after:

    -exhaustive research
    -going to many dealerships in my area
    -calling a dozen dealership
    -going through internet sales
    -asking the advice of everyone I knew
    -asking the advice of the kind people on this forum,

    I went through and made a purchase on what I think is a decent deal. I think I may have gotten a better deal than my friend, who referred me to the dealership he got his car at.

    So I got a Camry SE this week 21,450 + TTL. They threw in power seats and the floor and trunk mats.

    The car came standard with panel display infotainment system, Blue Tooth/AUX/USB, Alloy wheels, fog lights, key less entry w/ security system, quasi - stick shift drive. (Not sure if I missed anything that comes standard but if you look up the specs it states the above and anything I may have missed.)

    I opted not to get the moon roof, navi, key less start up, because I was on a budget and those were options I could live without.

    So did I get a good/decent deal on this purchase?
  • ezericsezerics Posts: 17
    Im considering a similar car.

    Was this a V6 or a 4 cyl? Includes backup camera? How did u get the 1.9 apr and what was the term? was that a dealer or manufacturer financing incentive?

    tks
