    Well, I paid cash, but they were trying to get me to finance and yes, they offered me 0% financing (no change in price)

    Thank you, Can you please share the dealer name and contact info..thx.
  • I am looking to Lease a 2013 Camry Hybrid LE (Ford Fusion Hybrid other option) plus a Toyota Sienna LE lease

    Can anyone provide any offers they have seen recently in Florida/ South east on 12K/yr-36Mo?
    The dealer is adamant they cant offer same price on lease as sale. How much should I let go extra compared to what cash sale prices are when calculating lease payment.

    MF is 0.00045 and residual is 63%

    Also any recommendation if the Excess Wear and Tear package offered for 595+tax is worth?

    Bought a Camry SE for 19950. MSRP of the car was 24860. I paid 21700 OTD. Probably about 250$ more, but still is a nice deal i think.

    Just moved to CT and looking to buy a Camry Hybrid LE (w addl backup camera) - dealer through Toyota offered 2k under MSRP which seems high reading all the posts here. Any suggestions on a dealership which is more reasonable and good to work with? Thanks!

    I saw that Hanlees Toyota Richmond, CA was advertising Camry SE's for $17999. 3 of them at this price. I have not seen any advertised pricing this low.

    Wow that's a great deal.. Which dealer was it?

    Zero percent financing is free money, with no price impact. Why not take the financing and put the money in a bank account which would earn some interest and set up automatic payments?
  • Thank you to everyone that has posted recently. I just got this lease deal and would love to know if I did alright in my negotiating. I also used but didn't realize the $1750 incentive was for purchasing only.
    Camry SE v6 2013 in Georgia
    The V6 comes with NAV/Entune, leather trim
    Other options: Convenience Package, Sunroof

    MSRP: $30,329.00
    Negotiated: $25,400.00
    Doc Fee $699.00
    Title etc $41.00
    Acq fee $695.00
    Loyalty cash $500.00
    Total $26,335.00
    Residual (they said 61% on V6) $18,500.69
    Money Factor (they said that was tier 1) 0.00075
    Tax rate 6.5%
    tax paid total $1,709.11
    tax paid monthly /36 $47.48
    Depreciation portion $217.62
    Finance Portion $33.63
    Monthly $298.72
    12k year 35 mo. 0 down

    Thoughts? I went between a few dealers and really wanted the v6 after driving a Prius for 3 years... The v6 certainly does move. I'm hoping I made a good enough deal to make up for the extra payment in gas I will have.

    I was in the market for a base, barebone 2013 Camry LE with no factory additions in the Atlanta area.

    I started negotiations at the TrueCar pricing of $18,350 + dealer fees + Tax + Title/Registration.

    I never went to any dealership and only negotiated via email or phone (sign up for google voice and get a disposable number forwarded to your real phone).

    I had one offer from a dealer for $17,900 + fees + TTR = $20,100 out the door.

    Another offer was for $20,000 out-the-door but this was for a car that was not on his lot and would be a dealer trade.

    Note that the prices above were for a LE without power seats or carpet mats.

    I ended up buying a 2013 Camry LE with driver power seat and carpet mats (MSRP $24,279) for $18,500 + dealer fees + tax + title/registration = $20,550 out-the-door.

    Again, I used TrueCar pricing as a negotiation tool and if you use TrueCar in conjunction with PenFed, I got a discounted loan rate of 0.74% APR.

    Tips for everyone doing car shopping:

    - Do not go into the dealership for price negotiations
    - Negotiate via e-mail primarily and ask for written quotes via e-mail (they might be hesitant at first to send you something in writing, but insist that you will not come in until you will get an email quote with VIN, MSRP, etc).
    - Compare MSRPs and ask the dealers to compete against each other
    - You have no idea how many times I've heard "AT THAT PRICE WE WOULD GO OUT OF BUSINESS" nonsense from these dealers (stealers).
    - Get financing setup ahead of time and PenFed/TrueCar has an amazing rate of 0.74% right now
    - Even though I got a good deal at $20,550 out the door, I'm certain that the dealership made atleast $1k on the car, if not more.
  • in south florida.
    MSRP 28300 for the Camry Hybrid LE with stupid options (toyota guard elite/ carpet mats/ tinting)
    Residual 66%
    MF is 0.00147
    OTD: 0 down +35 payments of 306/mo all inc
    I did buy the excess wear and tear ($19/mo)

    Your price is very good I would say based on MSRP plus if you indeed decide to buy, you only pay 61%.

    Is the 18500 inclusive of the destination fee of $795?

    States like VA charge high dealer fee. How much is the dealer fee in your area?

    How much is the tax in your state?
  • Yes, $18,500 includes the destination charge. The dealer fee was $499 and tax was $1,412. Again, this is for a bare boned 2013 Camry LE with just driver power seat and carpet mats. No other bells and whistles (navigation, back-up camera, moonroof, etc.)

    Taxes in Georgia are high for cars. Sales tax for general items is 6% and I paid 8% effective tax for my Camry.

    I think I could have saved another $300-$500 if I had more time. I would have ended up renting a car for a few days, so it wasn't worth it.
  • Hope this might be helpful.

    Think I can contribute to this forum about my pleasant experience on buying Camry SE. Yesterday (July 18) I purchased 2013 Camry SE for my son at Sterling McCall Toyota, it was a very nice experience I hope to share here.

    Last Saturday’s Houston Chronicle newspaper had an advertisement by Joe Myer Toyota with $5000 off for Camry in SE and XLE model. I contacted Joe Myer Toyota and Alex was very helpful and quick to respond. Unfortunately they did not have a Camry with the option my son likes: SE with leather seat but without sunroof and NAV (nowadays with most kids having smart phones containing GPS, who wants to spend > $1500 for an installed NAV?). We have another two cars at home with sunroofs as standard and have never used them.

    So I contacted Sterling McCall Toyota and Mr. Ury Cuellar replied my email promptly. After I described the car with options, he quickly found one which just arrived in their dealership a few days ago as he said. I scheduled an appointment the following day and met Ury after work. I brought the newspaper with me with hope to save the back and forth negotiation time.

    The initial discount was about $4000, rebate $1500, $500 for my purchasing a Lexus car at their sister dealership Sterling McCall Lexus in Feb, then $2000 discount from the dealership. I was very firm with $5K discount or clearly said that I would visit another dealership with newspaper if no $5000 discount was available, so after another two back and forths, the deal was sealed with $5000 discount within 20 minutes.

    So here is the detail:
    2013 Toyota Camry 4dr Sdn I4 Auto SE
    2.5-liter, 4-cylinder, leather seat, no sunroof, no NAV, with 5 miles.

    MSRP: $26,868.00
    Rebate: -$1,500
    Loyal customer: -$500
    Dealer discount: -$3,000
    The final sale price: $21,868
    Plus Tax, Title and License the same amount which everyone in Texas has to pay.
    Road hazard: $698

    Did not buy extended warrantee, but road hazard for tire and wheel damage since the road condition in Houston is very challenging for any type of tires including Michelin. This is a very good investment since all of our cars encountered tire damage within one year.

    In the end, I found about $60-$80 extra charges like inspection, dealer tax and others added to the final contract. Since the amount was not over $100 and the dealership provided a full tank of gas, I did not questioned.

    The final OTD price is about $24,300.

    I usually buy car at the end of month, or quarter, but this time it seems Toyota is really giving a huge discount to attract people to buy. We thought about Honda Accord and Nissan Altima. The discount for Corona is $4k, for Tundra is hard to believe: $10k, did not see discount for other models. I wish Camry could have $10K discount. If you plan to buy a Toyota car, I think it is a good time now and the rebate may disappear very soon. Remember to bring a Houston Chronicle Saturday edition with ad of $5000 discount for Camry. This may save you a lot time and saliva. I saw other people had posted here not pleasant experience with Sterling McCall dealerships, but my experience so far is nice for two cars, so at least you should give it a try.

    Whenever I check truecar pricing it comes around 20000 before tax and title. Am I missing something.

    Who are the dealers I can contact for this kind of price?
  • gnartgnart Posts: 36
    Dealer negotiation depends on your location. What is your locale?
  • emvtimeemvtime Posts: 7
    Thanks for your response. I am in NJ. Yesterday once I got $18,100 - $18,400 in NJ and NY area but dealer did not honor that price. He told that there is some error on truecar site.
  • gnartgnart Posts: 36
    I am down in Maryland. There is an MD dealer that others and I got excellent OTD price from. NJ is a little way, depending on where in NJ. Best of Wishes.
