    Hi,
    I'm looking to purchase an XLE V6 with the works (Navigation, leather, heated front seats, XM .....). Has anyone purchased such a vehicle from the San Franciso, Sacramento/Bay area? If yes, how much did you pay for it?

    Can anyone please put up snaps of the xle interiors?

    Thanks,
    Jerry
  • Has anyone here received a great price at a dealer around NC? For that matter, what price can you expect to pay for an auto LE w/ the standard options? I was given a quote of 19,200 (don't know if it included dest.) +TTL

    I have purchased a number of Toyota's in NC and most dealers quote "a so many dollars above INVOICE price", but do not include the very high ADMIN or DOCUMENTATION fees. My old dealer is now asking a ridiculous $399 DOC fees. I do not know how much this padded Southeast ADMIN charge benefits the dealer. So be careful.
    Never allow the TTL to get involved in the negotiations since it varies from county to county and state to state.

    Taydav,
    Sorry, had a link to Fitzmall's website, which isn't allowed per membership agreement. Fitzmall has a dealership in Chambersburg, PA, which is about 2-3 hours from Pgh. Check their website, and they have LE's starting at 19.2K which would save you about 1K.....for your cost of a daytrip to go pick it up.

    I've been banging heads with dealers for a few weeks and haven't had an offer on 19,200. Was this an off the lot price? Can I ask the dealership? I'm in SC

    Shopper,
    I'm in Raleigh, and the local dealer matched Fitzmall. I was 6 nanoseconds away from buying it there since we have a work location near the Gaithersburg Fitzmall and I could just easily pick it up and drive home (4 hrs). I was really looking for hassle free buying, and the local dealers wanted MSRP claiming limited supplies, new model, yada yada yada. In the end, even with the additional Southeast Region surcharge (MD is out of that area), and the local dealers 399 doc fees...they matched out the door what I could have gotten at Fitz. SC to MD might be too much of an inconvenience for you, your time is worth something, unless you have another reason to sightsee/visit DC area.

    I have a number of friends/family/co-workers who are DC area and have bought there and report a top-notch sales and service experience, so I personally would have no qualms about buying out of state. As always a standard disclaimer....your mileage may vary.

    I just called one of the dealers in Raleigh, but I don't think it was the same one. Did you price match to the 19,159 price of the LE?

    And did they throw in any other options or was that your final price?
  • kiawahkiawah Posts: 3,666
    I didn't get 19.2, that is the current price for one of the base LE's from Fitz. Back when I bought they just came out and Fitz markups were higher than the 500 they are now at. It's not an apples to apples comparison, because I also ordered a number of additional features, some factory, some dealer addon.

    I got an Aloe Green XLE V6 with Option E, Smart Key, VSC, Heated Seats (didn't want), Tinted Windows, and Mud Guards for about $350 over invoice with less than $150 in fees this weekend in DFW (FW to be specific).

    Experience was fine. I got a few more options than I wanted (VSC and heated seats) but it was at a better discount than I expected. The dealer was very low key and didn't push. Overall, my experience at the dealership was better than in the past, primarily because I did most of my negotions via email and not on foot.

    I've put about 200 miles on the car this long weekend and am more impressed with every drive. Much better than my 98 Accord V6.

    Bought my CE (5 speed) for 15988 + 135(floor mats) total out the door was 18,059. No other extras other than the mats. It was an ad car here in orlando (toyota of orlando).

    Have you tried Jim Hudson Toyota in Irmo? I bought an XLE V6 from them & was very well satisfied with the deal & treatment I relieved. Shopped Charleston & Orangeburg, & none of these dealers came close to the deal I got at Jim Hudson.
  • njeraldnjerald Posts: 688
    Sounds good. About $200 over dealer invoice!!!!
  • aznmaskaznmask Posts: 21
    wehn they give you the price quote do they include the Destination Charge? or not?

    njerald i think it over $700 invoice.. (i forgot to ask if that price is include or without the destination charge.

    I'm ready to sign-on the dotted line, Saturday. Absolutely loved the test drive and comfort of the car!!! Hopefully, we won't get a ticket!! I've read one msg about problems with the Smart Key System. Has anyone else had any problems with it? Maybe I'm from the old school but, not having a key to start up a car is unfamiliar territory. Also, I was informed that I need a Radio Kit $359, for the XM to work. Is that all I need when I sign-up online at XM? And, XM or Sirius? Does one come in clearer than the other? We do prefer baseball - Go Cards!!

    We're purchasing as $200 over invoice and happy with that. We've found that advertising fees are negotiable.

    To get the XM hardware that integrates seamlessly w/ the car radio you need to get the kit through the dealer. You'll get three free months, then it's 12.95/ month for the first account, and 6.95 for up to 4 additional accounts. It came standard on my Odyssey last summer and I now have five radios on my account. XM broadcasts all MLB games. I ordered it on my new SE which I hope to get in two weeks after a 12 week wait.
  • rexy5893rexy5893 Posts: 20
    Thank you for the information. Knowing it will work seamlessly withe the factory install helps! Do you know if the antenna is placed in the window or above the tail lights in the roof?
  • rexy5893rexy5893 Posts: 20
    Sorry, I'm from Missouri but, if you go to toyota.com they have a 360 of the interior and exterior. That sight also shows where the features are located and how they work, if your interested.
  • Did you order this car or did they have it in stock? Also do you know if heated seats are only available with leather? Were the mudguards, exhaust, and spoiler included in the price? and did you have the dealer install them?
  • rexy5893rexy5893 Posts: 20
    I have done alot of research on this car and I'm going to order it Saturday. Heated seats are only available with leather. The Chrome exhaust tips are standard on the XLE. The spoiler is only onl the Se Model. We are going to ask them if we get the spoiler will it interfere with the tail lights in the back window. Mudguards are an option which could probably be installed at the dealer.
  • blindmantooblindmantoo Posts: 139
    From what I've seen, it's on the rear package shelf. I'm hoping the reception is as good as all of other vehicles (perfect) - which all have external antennas.

    Anyone got a good deal around Minneapolis area? What should I expect to pay for this car? Thanks!
  • njeraldnjerald Posts: 688
    I was going to order but they got the exact car I wanted the day I committed.

    Yes, heated seats are only available with leather.

    The mudguards and spoiler I bought on EBAY and installed myself,

    The exhaust parts I ordered on-line, installed myself and had Midas make the 16" tie-in.

    Did you get any prices yet?
  • img1977img1977 Posts: 4

    HI EVERYONE,

    READING ALL OF THE INFO HAS HELPED ME MAKE UP MY MIND ABOUT 2007 CAMRY LE.
    I AM IN MICHIGAN AND GOT A PRICE FROM THE DEALER OF $19,270.00 INCLUDING THE FLOOR MATS, FIRST AID KIT AND CARGO NET. OUT THE DOOR PRICE IS $20,705.00 GOOD PRICE? I HAVEN'T GOT IT YET I AM GOING TO GO PICK IT UP ON SATURDAY.

    SHOULD I GET THE EXTRA WARRANTY? I SPOKE WITH THE DEALER AND WAS TOLD THAT ITS GOING TO BE ABOUT $1800.00 WHICH I THOUGH WAS TOO MUCH MONEY. IS IT GOOD TO GET IT JUST INCASE I NEED IT?

    ARE THERE SPECIAL DEALS GOING ON FOR EXTRA WARRANTY?

    THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR HELP :D
  • Good luck with your LE. As regards the extended warranty, your dealer is trying to take advantage of you. You need to read this thread:

    Good Luck!
  • img1977img1977 Posts: 4
    I think it is possible to get leather without heating. About the taxes & title etc it depends upon where you live. In minnneapolis it's 6.5% tax i think & around 300 for title.
  • 03cobra03cobra Posts: 37
    I just purchased a loaded SE at Denny Hecker for 100 over invoice. I suspect you are not going to get this price from general sales at the dealer. let me know if you need a name.
  • I haven't sent out requests yet, still deciding on model and options. On the quotes you received, how long were they going honor the price?
