2013 and Earlier - Toyota Camry Prices Paid and Buying Experience

    You can do better. I say this because:

    1. The fact that "a couple of dealers" can offer you this tells me you can do better.
    2. I purchased a brand new 2010 Toyota Camry LE (automatic, with alloy wheels option) for $20,500 OTD on Dec 21, 2009 at a NC dealership. This was before any of these recent problems came up.

    You should continue to negotiate. You can also consider negotiating non-price factors such as color, whether the accelerator is made by CTS or Denso, and getting a Camry made in Japan.
  • For someone else's future reference, I just purchased my 2010 camry hybrid for $28,076 plus tax and tags ($29,000 out the door). That price is $1440 below the TMV. MSRP was $32,715. Options were navigation, leather, heated seats, moonroof, carpet and trunk mats.

    I purchased from Mechanicsville Toyota in VA and was very happy with my experience there.

    Salesman stated he would sell for $27479 out eh door. The lease is $294.00 for 36 months with $2000 down. The dealer is in Connecticut. Look like it is worth it to you?

    You don't really give enough info, don't know the options your vehicle has.

    Compare the MSRP and features to They are in a pretty geographically competitive area, and have very good prices. That will give you a pretty good target to shoot for up in Conn....or you could always fly/train it down to DC if it's worth it to you.

    Hi everyone. I live in Richmond, VA and looking to buy a new basic Camry LE with little or no addional options. How much is a good price to pay at this point in time. Price included tax, title, and fee.(OTD price) The MSRP of the car I was looking at is $22850.Thanks for all response.
  • I just bought a camry hybrid in the Richmond area. I calculated the true market value (TMV) on Edmunds and did my price comparisons with the internet sales department (using the request quotes feature on The quotes I got were all over the place - Haley Toyota's first price quote came in $1800 higher than the lowest first quote I received (from Fitgerald Toyota in MD, just 2 hrs from here). I ended up purchasing from Mechanicsville Toyota when they beat the MD price. If you get quotes from Fitzgerald Toyota in MD as well as a few Richmond dealers, you will quickly see what the range of prices is and then you can ask them to match each other. Good luck!
  • Received email offer for XLE 4 cyl from a local dealer:

    MSRP - $27,995
    Offer - $23,455 + get the $1250 rebate

    Seems a little to good to be true. I might head over there this weekend to check it out.
  • This is for a 2010 Camry LE, Automatic with no other features in NE Florida.
    after a lot of negotiating I got an OTD quote of $18,900
    that includes tax, tag, title, fees, etc...
    I've been browsing the forums for a while now and I want to know, how does this sound to you guys (and gals)?
  • World Toyota in Atlanta has been emailing an LE at 16800 before fees.
  • Thanks mahouraii! Here's how I crunched the numbers..

    $16,800 + $682 (SE Toyota Destination and Admin charge) + $750 Destination Charge + 7% sales tax + approx $100 for a FL title + tag transfer = approx $19,610.

    Now, I'm not sure if that base price has already factored in manufacturer rebates to the dealer or loyalty discounts for the customer (I am a previous Toyota owner)
    but we'll be getting it for about $700 less than that.

    How does this look to everyone else?
  • Well, 16800 + 682 + 750 = 18232 + TTL.

    It's a good deal if it was last year. With the current fiasco and 2011 on lot, I think it's an o.k deal at most.
  • Well compared to what the local dealers are selling them for ($19,995) that sounds like a good deal, guess in my area the market isn't as distressed.

    Hi can anyone help,

    this is what i got for a Camry LE

    MSRP $23,000
    Invoice $21,000
    selling to me for $20,700
    OTD (tax+lic fees) $23,000

    I am in the SoCal area. Also this includes the $1,000 new college grad and i'm going to go with the 1.9%apr
  • kiawahkiawah Posts: 3,666

    should get that price easily without the college grad rebate

    How much lower can we go below invoice? And how do I know if that is the invoice? Im talking to them through emails, I have not seen the car yet.
  • Close I went ahead and did it. Good buying experience .. I love how they tell me 'we are losing $600 on this car from our NET prices, but we hope you will return and buy another car again so that's why we do that'....

    MSRP - $27,795 - XLE 4 cyl Auto + Leather/Heated Seats + Smart Key + Dest
    Selling Price - $23,683
    Doc Fee - $250
    Taxes $1,495.81 (OH)
    Title - $33.50
    Rebate - Additional $1250 off
    OTD - $24,212.31

    Happy with Bluetooth in the car, my main requirement. Getting a deal like this is why I don't enjoy buying a car - there is NO WAY, based on the 'information' provided by Edmunds and the like that I should be able to get this pricing. So I've decided in my next career to become a car dealer to figure out how they really price and pay for cars :)

    Thanks to all who post and provide information..
  • I love how they tell me 'we are losing $600 on this car from our NET prices, but we hope you will return and buy another car again so that's why we do that'....

    I heard that all the time...sometimes I make fun of them by saying "You keep telling you make no money or losing money every time I purchase a car but you're still in business." They just smile at me. :P

    I thought the sale of Camrys were on hold until they got the brakes issue fixed? Also, have you guys gotten a better offe/deal since this scandal broke?
