  • In my local ad (northern CA) I'm seeing $19,000 (after $1000 factory rebate and $1000 new grad rebate) for a 2011 Camry LE. This seems like a pretty good deal to me since the best I was able to get a few months back was $19,600 for a non-LE base model if I remember correctly. I feel I should be able to get it lower if others are able to get under $19K without a new grad rebate. Thoughts? Wait until the 2012 model comes out (assuming a 2012 LE will be in the same price range)?
  • IMO, 19k is too high w/ grad rebate. It should be in the low 18K. No, I don't think you can get the new 2012 in the low 18K b/c there will be no 1k factory rebate and dealer will try to sell above invoice or closer to MSRP.
  • Hi guys, I want to buy a 2011 camry with a few miles (22,00). The price the dealer is giving me is $17K with leather seats. Is it a good deal? Thanks!
  • I think 17k is good if you're looking to save some money but, personally, I wouldn't touch a new car w/ 2-5k miles b/c it was either a rental, a loaner or a demo. I rather buy a personal own 2010 w/ 10k miles or so.
  • You are thinking about buying a 2011 model with 22,000 miles on it? I agree with the other poster to check around and get another car with less miles.
  • Thanks, you two! I will look around. What is a great deal on 2011 camry with leather seats and under 1K miles?
  • I thought I got a great deal even compared to the Edmunds.com True price recommendations. 2011 Toyota Camry LE in dark gray with floor mats....Sticker was 23660.00 but the internet price was 23285.00, so the dealership was doing 3000.00 off MSRP. Bringing down my price to 20285.00 with ofcourse 2 years full maintenance. They also gave me quite a bit more for my trade than I thought I could get.
  • Your best option is to use Edmunds for your search.
  • Just purchased new 2011 Camry LE with Alloy wheels, moonroof, and alarm system for 24,400 out the door. Did I get a good deal?

    The better question from me to you would be, do you like the car? You've already bought it so why ask a question which might make you feel bad after the fact. That question should have been asked before the purchase. So just be happy with your new car...enjoy! :)

  • the quote for XLE V6 Is $26,607 with no additional options or accessories. $ 3998 below MSRP. Is this a good deal or there is scope for further negotiation?
  • Purchased a 2011 Camry LE Automatic for $20,300 - no additional options, after $1,000 cash rebate. Called a few dealers for quotes asking for the internet sales manager. Done in about 45 minutes. Got matching offers at $20,300 but none would beat that price.

    This is $231 below invoice and $900 below Edmunds TVM. Good luck buying!!!!
  • That is about $300 below invoice cost which is the best I could get on the phone for an LE I4.
  • Bought Camry LE 2011 Auto with several options (Sat Radio, floor mats, lock wheels, theft tracking system, and a few more I didn't need).

    Paid $20.5 k before tax and tag. I think they are really trying to get rid of the 2011 stock because the 2012 model is arriving at the dealerships in early October. Bargain hard and you'll get a good deal.
  • With floor mats and alloy wheels I paid 19,000 with all fees except from sales tax - different from state to state. Did I made good deal?

    I'm at the beginning of my purchase research in the Bay Area California. The plan is to purchase a 2012 Camry SE with Leather seats, Homelink, Nav, Entune. I got a reply back as below, but not clear on the type of packages the dealer mentioned. I do not want more than I need, and of course, how about the quoted price? The below quote is for a 2012 EX with PD, EX, C4 options.

    MSRP $25380 includes PD EX C4 options.

    Internet VIP price $23580 after $1,000 bonus cash (this is a limited
    availablility offer, only available to the next 14 units sold, first come,
    first served), plus any applicable sales tax, DMV license & document fee.
  • I am planning to buy Camry 2012 XLE with convenience package.

    Has anyone bought recently in Bay area, if you can share your experience that would be very helpful.

    Thanks !!
  • This is before TTL. --This is for basic - as few options as possible. Should I keep looking or grab this one?
  • I negotiated with a few dealers and had ones go as low as 200 over invoice but I preferred the convenience of the local dealer.

    CAREFUL WITH THE EXTENDED WARRANTY! They will show you a financing option and focus on the payments saying the only thing that changes is the length of the term. Well let's see... paying 500 a month for 60 months and paying 493 for 66 months is not the same thing. Negotiate the extended warranty if you want it and disregard their "this is my cost of the warranty" list. I skipped it.

    Wheel and tire insurance? Make sure the insurance is tied to your VIN not the tires. Meaning when the OEM tires wear out, you can put on ANY tires you want and if you get a puncture they will replace it WITH THAT BRAND no questions asked. I paid $649 for 5 years (have the 18 inch wheels)

    Absolutely LOVE my Camry. Don't shy away from the SE it's not like a difference between a BMW 525i and M5. The ride is better than my 2008 Accord (17" wheel), but it is not as athletic. The interior is so beautiful, from the leather to the design.

    The V6 really does get stellar mileage, I have been very close to my 4 cylinder Accord's mileage! I love the smoothness and power of the V6, the fuel economy is just a plus.

    My gripes are only a few:

    -JBL "Greenedge" has really taken the edge off the sound of the previous generations awesome stereo. It's 80% as good I'd say, but a huge step up from the Accord so I'm enjoying myself.

    -In my SE V6 I have auto up/down for DRIVER ONLY, my Accord had at least driver and passenger, annoying.

    -I'm not expecting a Porsche Boxster Spyder levels of feedback from the steering wheel, let alone my old Accord's level; but there is absolutely ZERO steering feel. I have absolutely no idea how much grip I have or even the direction at times (for ex. when parking in my garage)

    Overall I'd give this car a 92/100 based on my expectations going in. I plan on keeping it for a long time.

    I currently have a deposit down for a loaded 2012 XLE they should be getting in any day. V6 and it includes floor mats. The agreed upon price was $50 under invoice ($200 more than I could have gotten through trucar but driven 130 or so miles). Is this a good deal? Or should i wait/try for better. Total out the door would be 33357.01 which includes taxes/registration fees of 2581.08.
