  • kfernandokfernando Posts: 4
    I am not sure if u really did a test drive on all three(2013 Altima, 2012 Accord and 2012 Camry) i would recomend to d a test drive rather just read reviews.... u will feel it only if u test drive it.... i used to read lots of reviews but had a completely different thought when i did a test drive.
    i did test drive on all three... 2013 Altima SV - it just have lots of crome, 2012 Accord its old school... sound system nd interior is bad(old school)... 2012 camry has a nice sound sytem nd suspension. Drove all three of them on pot hole.. only camry se had a good suspension(its just my feel/thought varies from person to person)...

    This might change when u test drive both
    "i see more honda vehicle as luxury vehicle.....

    toyota everyday use doesnot feel ... " :)

    Thanks for the info [mazda6dude]

    I am looking for a LE with power driver seats and mats. What price have you
    found for a LE?

    In your opinion what are the important differences between LE and SE?
    Is it worth the extra$$ ?

  • mazda6dudemazda6dude Posts: 283
    In my opinion, go with the SE. The price difference is minimal and you get a lot more equipment with the SE.

    When I bought my SE, I rarely looked at LE prices because the difference was minimal and you get a lot more with the SE.

    Fog Lights, Spoiler, 17 inch alloys, Sport Suspension, Better seat material are just some of the differences.

    Hope this helps.
  • I am looking to buy a 2012 Camry Hybrid XLE with no options installed in northern California. Is it a good price to get one like $26,000 (does not include tax, title, registration, and about $55 doc fee)? Thanks!

    Take a look at what CR says about the new Civic and Odyssey - not good at all.

    Back to the Camry, nice car, nice prices. Like the new suspension on the 2012s.

    Just bought 4 cylinder 2012 Camry XLE at Gullo Toyota, Houston. Just wanted to share with you guys the price I paid.

    Invoice Price:
    Base - $22,648
    CQ convenience package - $1028
    EX Display & navigation - $903
    LA toyota installed leather - $1419
    Mats - $140
    Mud guards - $65
    3M window tint - $199
    rear bumper protector - $38
    color key side molding - $125
    TTL - $1906
    college grad rebate - $1000
    Subvention rebate - $500
    drive out price - $27,200
    I will be applying for Edmunds rebate of $750 so that makes the final price $26,450.

    Worked with four other toyota dealers in Houston. Gullo gave me the competitive price. Very straight forward and no pressure approach of Gullo made me to go with them. They were also very prompt in responding to emails.
  • From Maita in Sacramento. No sunroof and no power seat, basic + 5 piece mat set. Used the 1000 College rebate, OTD: $20839. Going to submit the edmunds rebate now.

    Nice and smooth transaction. Quoted online, emails back and forth, then went there to nail it down.

    Congratulations!!! tavibenben

    I am in So. CA and it seems all roads lead to Maita Toy.
    What was the actual sales price before all Tax and fees and before
    the $1000 college rebate.
    This will help me compare prices for the LE.

  • 19988 on their website, 19900 for me after email negotiation.
  • coches1coches1 Posts: 104
    so 19900 before your $1000 college rebate right?
  • yes, seems there are still several cars on their website priced at 19988.

    Hi manchurian. I don't know if you have pulled the trigger on your Camry yet, but as you suspected Toyota dis enhance its offers on this car for the 4th of July. The exact programs that are available on it vary somewhat by region, but generally speaking Toyota lowered its special financing offer on this car to 1.9% for up to 5 years and it added a $500 cash incentive on leases of it.

    Hi rhizzlebop and others. Toyota's incentives often vary depending upon which one of its twelve regions one is in. While Toyota is providing 0% financing for up to 4 years in its Southeast region right now, the rate in just about all other regions is 1.9% for up to 5 years. It was recently enhanced to that level from 2.9%.

    Is their a high probability of rebates and customer rebates this summer?
    Because Southern CA. has the most cars per region are they motivated
    to act first there?

    It is interesting the promotions for leasing because of the increased profits.

    edited July 2012

    can we expect rebates and cash incentives in july or have
    the majority of the rebates ended for 2012?

    After 2 weeks of researching about prices for the Camry SE with powered seats and mats, I ended up getting one for $23,900 OTD. With the Edmunds rebate, it's $23,150 OTD. I also got the 0% finance for 36 months. I'm in the Dallas DFW area.

    I know it's not as good as some other deals from CA, but this is the best I can get. I started out by sending emails asking for quotes, and on the day that I made the purchase, I called the few dealers who have emailed me the most competitive quotes and confirmed the OTD price. Not surprisingly, some of them changed their quotes. After a few hours of pitting one dealer against the others, two different dealers told me that the lowest price OTD they can get is $24,600 and $24,500, respectively, and they EVEN told me that if I should buy the car elsewhere if I find anything better than the price that they gave me.

    I ended up buying the car from the 3rd dealer that was willing to work with me and offered me $23,900 OTD with the exact color that I wanted. I feel like I could have got it lower some more by waiting until 06/30, but I had to work 12 hours that day, so there wasn't any other options unless I wanted to wait until the end of July. I bought the car on June 28th.

    I test drove 7 vehicles from different brands before settling down with the Camry SE. Honda wants more money for their outdated technologies. The 2013 Hyundai Sonata's interior looks nicer, but its steering scared me; I can see myself running off the road very easily if I don't pay enough attention. The Mazda6 and Mazda3 are very fun to drive but they lags behind on mpg.

    I love my Camry. Already put 300 miles on it. It's such a joy to drive. I hope everybody loves their car as much as I love mine.

    Thanks Car Man. Yes, I did pull the trigger on it. Went with 0% for 36 months.

    Besides the Power driver seats and mats what is the major difference
    between the SE and LE?

    I know the front grill is different. Besides a few minor body
    changes it seems the same.

    Since you have the knowledge and experience because you just purchased
    a SE maybe you can explain what the other differences are.

    I was not aware the hyandai steering is drive by wire.

    So, the deal i'm looking at is the Hybrid camry XLE, in the exterior and interior color of choice.
    Basically every option except the crap toyoguard. (which is useless)
    MSRP 35.360 + state sales tax + tag+title. (There is ALSO normally a dealer fee added on, of a few hundred.)
    Got the deal at 32,600 OTD including tax, tag, and title. (the tax here is just a flat $300 sales tax).
    So, if you back the tax tag and title out, you're down around 32050. I believe. I think thats pretty good considering there are no official rebates available. I'm gonna do the 0% for 48m deal.
