    Not sure if you are still looking to buy one.
    The power driver seat is standard with SE, isn't it ?
    Why are they adding it extra ?

    door cups/guards/door film $ 131 invoice - $ 199 MSRP <<-- what is door film ? and even $ 131-00 is high for that. Negotiate it down to $ 30.00 or $ 40.00

    Legal window tint for FL $ ? This is $ 125.00 at the place where I pay but you can go as high as 175.00 to 200.00, not more than that.

    I bought a base SE without moonroof package (and I am not sure what the display audio with entune is ?)

    I paid 20,988-00 + tax, tag, title and then the dealer added floor mats and pinstripe for $499.00 . I got a $ 1000.00 student credit after that with finance from SETF.
    I would have reduced further on the floor mats and pinstripe but had to give in as I had my family with two kids when I was dealing with all that.

    There are two dealers in Palm Beach county that advertise that they have no dealer fee and it makes so much more easier.
    Delray toyota and Earl stewart toyota have no dealer fee.
    Delray toyota has specials for new cars on their website and it is so much less hassle to go thru that.

    It's a good deal. Not sure if you could negotiate it lower.

    the $22800 OTD is just after 20% off MSRP +TTL, or you negotiate more than that? they offer $250 coupon, did you use it?

    thanks for your reply

    Still looking and I've now secured a price at more than one dealer of $22500 plus tax & tag only - no dealer fee

    I did try both dealers in palm beach with no dealer fees - they're still $1000 above this price

    This is for 2013 SE $22089 msrp incl $795 destination fee with power seat $440 msrp option, moonroof pkg $915 msrp option, radio with navigation & entune (Toyota navigation plus info/app system - different than just touch screen radio with Bluetooth & streaming which is standard) $1050 msrp option

    This totals $24494 - price I have is $22500 plus tax/tag only

    The power seat is not standard with SE it's an option

    The door film comes from factory but isn't on this car

    You got a great price - what dealer did you go to? I'm not sure i can get close to that these dealers act as if they're giving the car away at this price

    ugh

    buying a car is such a high stress situation & that's why I look to this forum for advice and comparison on what others in the area bought for

    Thanks again!

    I went to Delray toyota. They still have the special but $ 500-00 more. If you want to have the options then you can show their price and negotiate with dealers like Al Hendrickson.
    There is no PM-ing here else I can provide my buyers order if that helps.

    Got this offer recently with 1.9% at Toyota South Austin, think it's a decent price but not really sure. About the only thing I didn't include was the JBL sound system, the reason being it's not available without adding in the HDD system and an extra $1600 or so (which seemed ridiculous to me).

    Specifically the car includes:

    - Blind spot
    - Convenience Package
    - Display audio + nav/entune
    - Leather package
    - Moonroof
    - Tint/stripes/nitrogen
    - Spoiler
    - Molding
    - Vehicle shield
    - Premium mat set

    Interested in any thoughts.

    Thanks,
    Rick

    2013 Toyota camry le sedan automatic sale price of $20131 including destination of 795. Car sale without destination is $19336
    This does not include tax, tags or processing fee of 200. Car comes with power seat, all season mats and carpet mats.

    Let me know if this is a good price in the Baltimore area. I will be buying the car tomorrow. I reviewed the prior posts and could not confirm if this is a good price. Thanks in advance for your help.
  • Purchased the 2013 camry le new car this am. out the door including everything is 20600 after 500 grad rebate. all seasons and cargo net free.

    I declined an offer for $19,750 on a Camry SE with window tint today at Charles Maund Toyota. I was ready to purchase and signed all paperwork, but then they slapped an extra $125 documentation fee. It's not that I mind paying the extra money, I just thought it was very sneaky and did not like the business practice.
  • Last month I shopped around for 2012 Camry Hybrid and was offered $27950 out of door price for a 2012 Hybrid XLE with 0% APR. The price difference I got for Hybrid LE was $750 between 2012 LE and 2013 LE (APR for 2013). Hope this info is helpful.

    Hi Everyone,
    I read a lot in these forums and finally decided on the Camry XLE over Accord EX. Here is my breakdown.

    This is in Northern California. Bought today (4/30/13).

    No Trade-in.

    2013 Camry XLE (No added options, no dealer add-ons)
    MSRP - $25,875
    Invoice - Don't know
    Negotiated Price - $21,918
    Toyota Rebate $750
    Final Price - $21,168

    Tax (8%) - $1,759.84
    Doc Fee - $80
    Reg/Title/Other fee - $268.35

    Out of Door - $21,168 + TTL = $23,276.19
  • nspattnspatt Posts: 16
    I paid a similar price for an SE. Its a great price and enjoy your new car.
  • isloverislover Posts: 32
    not sure why you would decline? that is a good deal...

    what is $125 - really? nothing today...

    not worth it to turn down a good deal - and i doubt they were being "sneaky" - i'm sure it is something the dealer requires to be put in every deal

    hopefully you still got your car since you signed paperwork =]

    I should have mentioned that this was a loss leader advertised in the newspaper. They had advertised a color I did not want, but I was able to negotiate with them to pick my own color. No other negotiations.
    Initially I went in on Sunday and I asked for the advertised price + free window Tints and they said no, not at this price. I walked out thinking they might reconsider. Didn't hear back from them for 40 hrs. So on Tuesday I went back in and purchased without the tints.
  • ziyuluziyulu Posts: 47
    I didn't get it. I know it was a great deal. Like I said earlier, if we originally agreed on the price, I would not have mind paying it. I'd rather do business with another dealership. Later, the dealer actually called me saying, "Our manager does not want to sell you a car because you were rude to one of our sales managers."
  • Funny they said that, most dealers train their employees on how to be rude!!
  • isloverislover Posts: 32
    I agree with voicemailking - it's like they train theses salespeople to be rude and obnoxious - they make money off of US yes they treat us like dirt

    I HATE car dealers and the people who work in them - scum of the earth

    This is why I chose the 2013 camry le over the 2013 accord

    1. Dash - The dash of the 2013 accord looks cheap. The camry's dash has a leather look with accent stitching giving it an upscale look.
    2. Side panels - The side panels in an accord looked too much plastic and not upscale. The side panels in the camry looks like leather although it is not and does not look like plastic.
    3. Audio - The accord audio sounds as if its a 20 year old radio with the sound having the quality as if its coming from a coke tin. The touchscreen audio on the camry is simply awesome. Love the clarity of the sound and the options with the good bass effect.
    4. Seat comfort - I have a long drive everyday. The accord seats were hard whereas the camry's seats are not too hard and not too soft. Just right. The camry's seat base is lowered at the end of the base helping your lower back get full support to the bottom of your back. The accord's seats are not bad but wont give the same lower and full back support as the camry.
    5. Glovebox lock - I was expecting the glovebox of the accord to have a lock. It does not. The camry does have a lock.
    6. Ride - The ride on the accord is relatively rough. Some people consider this as their flavor of being sporty. The camry ride is quiet and the focus is on the audio or the super clear Bluetooth. The best part in the camry is the sport mode which is not available in the accord making the drive a bit boring. I really liked the extra passing power I was getting with this sport(aka automanual) mode in the camry le.
    7. Drive - Accord's drive is cvt which is not well engaging versus geared camry with the sport mode.
    8. Legacy - CVT is not proven on the Honda. The auto transmission of the camry is very proven. Lookup carcomplaints.com. The first year of all the accord model year changes are having the most problems. 2003, 2008 and may be 2013. Not sure but the prior pattern exists.
    9. Design - The accord's design looks old whereas the camry's looks modern.
    10. Space - Visually speaking, the camry's space is undoubtedly more although the specs try to tell you something else.
    11. Windnoise - Accord has far more windnoise from the driver side. Stepping into the camry was a big relief when test driving one after another.
    12. Wheels - I like the wheels on the accord.
    13. Seat cloth - The light color cloth on the camry has some kind of self design and a stripe on the back but both cars have bad cloth seats giving a cheap look.
    14. Center box lid extender and sun screen extender - The accord does not have these both and I want my hand to be supported while driving. Love this on the camry.
    15. Backup camera - Love the backup camera on the accord but I still have to look on both sides to see if anyone is coming this side and cannot totally rely on the backup camera even if this was on my Toyota camry. This was not a deal breaker.
    16. Design - The accord definitely copied a lot from the 2013 lexus es 350 i.e. dash design, tail lights, front leds design etc.(Checkout both cars before commenting on this point.). The worst part is the accord's tail lights are the same as Hyundai genesis and I am not a fan of Hyundai cars and their false promising techniques with the mileage etc. Camry designed on their own and no copying needed and I like that independent design and other cars don't have this design and most importantly, I don't think of Hyundai genesis when I look at my camry's taillights.
    17. Fuel consumption - Looked up fuelly.com and the forum on Edmunds.com and the mpg of both are comparable. I made sure I was not comparing camry hybrid. I am getting 34 to 37 on my camry le.
    18. Financing - Camry has 0% whereas accord has 1.9% as their lowest. Also, camry has a grad rebate of 500.
    19. Maintenance - Camry has two year free maintenance(or 25k miles) whereas the accord does not. However, Camry does not have a maintenance minder and after the free 25k, the camry maintenance will be very expensive compared to the maintenance minder driven cost experience on my accord/civic.

    By the way, I don't work for Toyota and this is the first time I bought a Toyota car. I had three accords and one civic before this car.

    Place a negative review about this dealership on yelp dot com for the public to see. This will wake them up and also affect their business.

    Yes, I already did. I also put it on their Facebook page and it was deleted immediately. I post it on my Facebook page and one of the managers made a comment. Here is what he said:

    Hi Guys. My name is **** ****. I am a Manager at Charles Maund Toyota. I just want to make a few clarifications: 1)The "write-up sheet" that we use has the $125 dealer document fee pre-printed on it in bold letters. It is never "added at the end" and every write-up includes all fees. 2) Every Dealership has a "Dealer Documentation Fee". 3) Dealer Documentation fee is printed on every advertisement in the small print. 4) At Charles Maund Toyota, our "small print" is actually 10 point or larger. In other words, it is not small. We encourage you to come in and see for yourself. Ask for ***** ****** (Customer Relations Manager).

    I just picked up a Toyota Camry SE for $19,000 plus TTL here in Oklahoma City at Bob Howard Toyota. I highly recommend this dealership.

    In working with the internet sales dept, I am looking at a 2012 Toyota Camry SE with 200 miles, 4 cylinder standard equip package at the following price:

    MSRP - $24979
    **This dealership also has a 2013 identical Camry SE (Same color, 4 cylinder, same standard package) advertised with an MSRP of $25039 (that's what, a $60 diff?)

    - $3,000 for 2012 models

    $21979 would be the total before TTL for the 2012 model. I am thinking that being that this is 2013 and the 2014 Camry's will be coming out in Sept? a 2012 Camry, even a new one that is sitting on the dealerships lot, has depreciated in value by at least 15% - 22% accord to my research? If so, this would be a diff of between $3746 and $5495.... which is what I'm thinking my negotiating strategy would be greatly appreciated! Any feedback or tips would be appreciated as I am looking to purchase on Mon or Tues....
  • ziyuluziyulu Posts: 47
    No, that is not a good deal. I'd say it has to be at $19,000. See my post above. I got a 2013 with MSRP $24,940 for $19,000.
  • ultratechultratech Posts: 117
    Did your 19,000 include any rebates ?
  • gemni24gemni24 Posts: 4
    Which dealership in Northern California ? Looks like a good deal.
  • ziyuluziyulu Posts: 47
    Nope. Just a cash price.
  • ultratechultratech Posts: 117
    Ok, too bad I'm in SoCal.
    How does invoice -1,000 before any rebates sound for a SE 4 cyl?
