    A reporter is looking to speak to consumers who were looking at mid-size vehicles and were choosing between a four and six cylinder engine but chose the four cylinder because of fuel prices or to save money. Please send your daytime phone number and the car you purchased to by Monday, July 19, 2010.

    OTD = $18607

    Leesburg Toyota, VA. Paul & Jason, tricks and surprises as expected from any dealer, firm pricing but soften up easily when presented with evidence. very smooth talking. very pleasant to talk to, especially Jason, young man with a passion for sports cars. Highly recommended.

    Seattle area, two weeks ago: $21,300 0% 60 Months. I's the base LE Auto, with only floor mats and a rear bumper guard added on the window sticker price. Nothing like some of the prices here, but thought I'd post anyway. Went out for a drive and pie and coffee, stopped by to sit in a Camry and Corolla. Didn't talk price or go for a test drive. The 0% planted the seed, though. Went home and checked Edmunds real quick. Made one phone call, asked what is your bottom line price on a base LE. $21,300 was the answer, $150 below Edmunds price. Went to that dealer, test drove a Corolla then Camry. Camry won, then it was on to the paperwork part. Got body side moldings, but nothing else in add-ons or warranty. I think the Body side moldings and mud flaps should be standard equipment, but whatever... My sister loves it. I wash it on Sunday's. Replaced a 2001 Camry CE 5 sp manual that I had bought new in Summer '01. That's now with my nephew, replacing a '93 Prism, my Sister's last car!

    We just purchased a 2011 XLE w/leather, heated seats, NAV, smart key & floor mats for $26,088 + TTL. With 0% & 2 yrs scheduled maintenance, this was the time to pull the trigger. We traded in a 2005 XLE with all the same features except smart key. I have to say this car is a joy to drive. Good pickup for a 4 cyl. and as quiet as a Lexus. I look forward to many years of pleasure driving it!

    Nice job. What was the msrp? Did it come with XM radio or did you opt not to add that?
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    yes,but airtran and southwest do not offer meal service on their flights but that's for another discussion...
  • ed17ed17 Posts: 7
    hey, could you please confirm that this is a new 2011 model? also, how did you get them down to 17534? which evidence did you put forth? thanks so much

    The processing fee's should be added to the cost of the vehicle....that's all dealer profit.

    You just leave out the DMV title and licensing charges, and city/county/state taxes. Those vary state to state. That way everyone can compare in an apples to apples comparison.

    If a single particular person is doing their own deal evaluation they should use the OTD price.

    hi folks,my local toyota dealership down here in hollywood fla is running a special for online customers.2011 camry base model with auto for $16,788.00. plus TTT and dealer fee' this a good price???
  • kiawahkiawah Posts: 3,666
    Depends how much the 'dealer fees' are. If 100, yes.
  • I'm new to the car buying business, but used Edmond's as a guide. I'm curious how the deal I managed stacks up:

    2011 Camry LE for $21,300 with 0% financing.

    No other fees (besides DMV cost and taxes) and it also includes these accessories: auto-starter, security alarm, alloy wheels, cargo net, and emergency health kit.

    The alloy wheels were a freebie, as the only car they had in the color I wanted happened to have alloy wheels. The cost of the extras alone go for about $1500 (I think) so figure I made out okay.
  • steven39steven39 Posts: 636
    dealer fee's are 699.00 which i can probably cut down to about 500.00 due to the slow sales and toyota's problems.....

    Any one know what this rear bumper applique is? it's a $60 option or something and not sure what it is.

    Also, is $28K out the door (including tax at 6.75%) a good deal on a $31K XLE 6 cylinder?
  • kiawahkiawah Posts: 3,666
    It's a clear piece of very thin film, that gets applied across the top of the bumper. It covers the area where when you had the trunk open, that you might drag something across the bumper and scratch it.

    My girls have been driving it to school daily, and putting book bags in and out all the time. They haven't scratched any paint yet. Don't have the applique, and I think if one is careful you don't need it.

    Did not use graduate rebate and guess 6% sales tax for st.louis. Try Luis Fusz.

    After approaching many dealerships in the metro Detroit area, I got a 2011 Camry XLE-V6 with value#1 package for $26,950 +other fee (tax+doc fee+title+license plates) and 0% financing for 60 months.

    Other dealers in the metro Detroit were quoting higher by $3000 on average.

    Any comments if I got a decent price?

    what is the Toyota mfg MSRP sticker of the vehicle (to be sure of apples to apples comparison), and how much were the doc fees (added on dealer profit)?
  • k_yk_y Posts: 6
    The MSRP sticker on the vehicle is 30,605 and was sold for $26,950.
    The doc fee is $190.
  • kevinc5kevinc5 Posts: 204
    Looks like you got a very good price. Compare with

    Yep, very reasonable deal.

    MSRP 31685

    Here's a comp, about 1K higher MSRP, and about 200 higher in price to compared to your deal. Your doc fee is reasonable as well at 190.

    So you didn't get 'taken', which is what I think most people really care about.

    Prices vary competitively by geographic area.
  • k_yk_y Posts: 6
    Thanks for all your responses. It's a relief to know that I have got a decent deal.

    Who was your dealer?
  • tjolkotjolko Posts: 13
    I want to thank you for the information on your buying experience with Jim Barkley Toyota in Asheville, NC. I live in Charlotte (130 miles from Asheville) and was initially just looking at dealers in a 90 mile radius of home. The folks at Jim Barkley were the easiest to deal with (they listed their no-haggle price for each car on their website) and they had the lowest prices, by far (also don't charge a doc fee). I saved over $2,000 vs the local Charlotte dealers. At first, I was a little skeptical that they were the real deal, but the car was ready and we were out the door within 30 minutes of our arrival.....I am a VERY satisfied customer.

    Hi Guys,
    I am getting a toyota camry SE V6 with leather interior for 27000 dollars OTD. Is it really good deal? They are offering me 0% Apr for 60 months. Thanks.
  • ral2167ral2167 ohioPosts: 723
    Hard to say...

    Whats the msrp?
    Does the $27000 include taxes/doc fees, etc.? If so, what did you pay not including these fees?
  • binodbinod Posts: 4
    The MSRP price says $29,840 with sport leather package. I have not bought it yet but he said OTD price will be $27000.Thanks
  • ral2167ral2167 ohioPosts: 723
    ok-- I am assuming that is including taxes and doc fees, etc. What's your tax rate? Any knowledge of the doc or other fees?
  • binodbinod Posts: 4
    I am in NJ. Tax rate is 7%. Everything is included in the price. I do not if is really a good deal.
