    Do you have a link for this? I've seen this this offer before or anywhere.
  • deepo11deepo11 Posts: 7
    Can't see the 750 rebate to pop when I open that link for some reason.

    Question, as I'm comparing prices, is there a general markdown % for thee 2012 SE models? So I can know what is a good sale price based on the msrp.

    Wow! Do people actually come on here and make up buying stories? Who has time for that? Here is my bill of sale breakdown

    Cash price- $20,026.65
    Taxes- $600.00
    Reg. Fees etc- $82.00
    Process fee- $389.95
    Total- 21,100.00

    I couldn't care less if you don't believe me. I didn't come on Edmunds Forum to waste time on "weaving stories". I wanted to find out if I had a good deal. THANKS to your comments! Now I know I didn't just get a GREAT DEAL, I had a SUPER GREAT DEAL!!! You probably are a salesman judging by the details that you were asking me. It was a lot of haggling and my indignant reaction to their lying which almost made me walk out. BUT the manager gave me the price quoted by their salesman, take it or leave it.

    "Wow! Do people actually come on here and make up buying stories? Who has time for that?"

    1. Yes, people do. Browse the Accord forum if you don't believe me.
    2. So, you paid ~$20.4k for the msrp 24,860 Camry.
    Congrats on a great deal!
  • hed63hed63 Posts: 6
    Thanks! The more I talk with people the more I feel good about my deal. The only bad side is getting so mad about the lie and blowing up at the dealer in a way Im not used to doing to people and shooting my blood pressure through the roof. It paid off for me but I sure hated the process and it wasnt a "fun" buying experience. But now its all good.

    Just want to check with everyone on this deal as I am going to pick up the car soon. The agreed up price for a 2013 Camry SE with power driver seat, floor mats, and tinted window is 20763, cash price, before tax and tag (as this depends on the area), but no dealer/processing fees. What do you guys think. thanks, ahead of time.

    $22,313 plus tax and lic for 2012 Camry SE with PD and NAV.
    I bought this in California in January.
    My son bought a 2012 Camry SE with out PD or any other extras, except mats for $20,988. That was in October 2012. No rebate on that purchase either.
    Also went with 0% financing instead of the rebate.
    Those were the best deals I could find in my area and I did a lot of looking...
  • mistervemisterve Posts: 22
    If you can get that deal then jump on it. Sounds too good to be true for the SE with PD. Hope the dealer isn't playing games with you.
    What state is this in?
  • bsunderbsunder Posts: 2
    I certainly hope the dealer is not, because I am travling a little distance to pick up the car, the dealership is in NC. I already have a signed bill of sell, so I hope it all works out.

    Excellent price I paid 28K$ OTD for a 2012 SE V6 with all packages back in 2012 and that was a good deal as sticker was 32K$. I am extremely happy with it also got 1.9% financing. This one terrific car. Probably get another in a couple of years.

    Picked up a 2012 Camry Hybrid XLE on Feb. 28 in Alabama for a sale price of $29,990. Sticker was $36,458. I qualified for 2.19% APR financing through Toyota, which was a shade better than the financing I brought to the dealership.

    I think it's a good idea to let them compete.

    The car has every option available aside from DVD player. Too many to list.

    I added an extended warranty (5 years/100k) for an additional $1,091.

    got the deal when i read the newspaper,

    invoice was 19,999, after college grad,

    then tax and everything, I was getting around 22k, then the finance guy was playing dirty and add in a car alarm for 750, which make otd price for me to be 22,800. if it wasn't for the alarm, I would paid 22k, which is possible. but 22,800 otd is not too bad in my book after i did some research.

    anyway, my advice for the first time buyer, is to watch out for the finance guys, it doesn't matter how you deal with the sale guy, the finance guy is your final gate of hell, and when you go in there? they will do w/e it takes to bring the price up, from car alarm to other uncessary stuffs, luckily i read edmund's advices, and yet i fell for it, but that is only i thought 22,800 otd was good enough for me already.

    anyway good luck for any future buyers

    I am looking to buy Camry SE. I got quote for Fully loaded for 26,960 (before tax and Fees etc).
    Base SE for 22,752.

    What you guys think of this deal?

    Any of you had recent buying experience with 2013 Camry SE in Los Angeles?

  • jtptoyojtptoyo Posts: 3
    I bought a new 2011 Camry XLE fully loaded with nav...the works. It has less than 21500 miles and is superb shape. I didn't intend on selling the car so soon but my circumstances have changed. To give you an idea of the dealership BS, when I started the process the car had 20500 miles. I've run back and forth to one dealership or another trying to get at least the average of what all the car valuation sites say I can get trade in. This is like 21900. The dealerships are offering me 17000 to 18500. That's crazy to me especially since at the time I bought the car I couldn't get them to budge of the 32k sticker. I guess I am going to get screwed going in and coming out. I see tons of SE and LE with cloth seats but not too many like mine. I guess I should have gone for one of the more popular lower models.

    Keep in mind, when people buy used cars, they are focused on price and not the loaded features. If you paid an extra $5,000 for upgrades, you will not reap the benefit when you sell the car. Since $21,900 can get a brand new Camry with decent features, you would not be able to sell your car for nearly that much.

    You may have a valid point but one dealer was gracious enough to let me know the real deal. I am only selling not really "trading." I am not buying anything to replace my Toyota. He said there is no jacked up finance charges, jacked up pricing on a new car, and no hold back on my trade. Which is what they are trying to do with the 17500 offer. Cost and value are two different things. They use the cost scenario when they are buying. "we can't give anything more than wholesale minus what we have to pay to prep the car for selling. When you buy the scenario is that they can't discount the car because "it's a Toyota Camry...the number one selling car that holds its VALUE. This whole idea that Nada, KBB, AutoTrAder, et al isn't the real trade in value is ridiculous. Why do these tools exist then? If NADA says I can get 21275 and Edmunds 20627...real numbers...the dealer is try to steal from me at 17500.
    Everyone doesnt want a brand new car. Read an article that there is a shortage of quality inventory for 2-3 year old used cars. The ppl on this forum, if they are real buyers, are able to knock down asking on new because the markup already accounts for the haggling. This dealer said he wouldn't buy my car because it was one of those upscale fix your credit lots. He doesn't put more than 7-9k in his vehicles...but yet he has them priced for 14-18. I would venture to say that he probably pays even less than the 7-9k since he was so open with the info. Anyway that's off the point. I'll keep looking until I find someone whose going to pay close to asking.

    Have you tried CARMAX? There cars are overpriced but seem to be in better condition. Perhaps their valuation might be higher...
  • jtptoyojtptoyo Posts: 3
    Carmax is where I started. They had a 2011 XLE smoked in with 44k for 229. They offered 185. Thought offers would get better.
  • thats for a base SE though. a full loaded SE 26000 plus fees
  • You probably mean 21100 plus tax and fees would be around 23000 something. im 100% positive its not OTD no dealership in the world can do that price.
  • lpiratellpiratel Posts: 4
    yea, i was going to tustin toyota, but i decided to swing by toyota of orange, got the car otd in less than 4 hours, like i said, with the college grad, my otd was $22800 with a lame [non-permissible content removed] car alarm install, but the great thing is, the saleman gave me a brand new car, just off the delivery truck, so I can't really complain :D
  • ziyuluziyulu Posts: 55
    That is the problem when you get the top of the line model. A person who is purchasing a used car likely will not pay over $20,000 when one can get a brand new one for under that (with less features). If you had purchased a new LE for about $20,000, you probably could have sold it for $17,000 ($3,000 loss) as compared to the $10,000 loss you are suffering because you got the loaded model.
  • Just bought a new 2012 Camry LE with power driver seat and floor/trunk mat.
    The sticker price is $24060.
    I paid cash price $20388, (NOT including tax, fees, registrations ...
    Including $750 rebates).

    I think it is a good price. Is it?
