    Thanks, njerald for sending me those links. Both cars however, have a sunroof and JBL which I don't want on the car.

    I have been shopping rates all week.I live in New York and do banking at HSBC and the best they would give me was 6.44% for 72 months.A friend told me to call Commerce Bank and their rate was 6.24% but max was 60 months.Tell you the truth I may go with a home equity loan from Commerce @ 7% fixed and you can deduct the interest.Good luck.

    Blindmantoo thanks for responding to my question.I really like this car and still feel I'm getting an ok deal but not the great deal I thought I was getting.You still think I should keep shopping huh ? I live in New York on Long Island and no body has this car.The dealer told me that my car would'nt be aval. until the end of June.The other two dealers I visted were this price before the NY tax of 8.625%.

    Hi, I recommend you to check out, and put your zip code, then try "build your Toyota". Choose "Camry" and then select SE V6. After clicking "Next", you will find the option packages. The toyota dealer told me different area has different option package. For example, Chicago area has two option packages for SE 4-cly(one w/ moonroof, one w/o), whereas in south california, only one option package without JBL. In Chicago area, JBL is "standard" for SE 4-cyl and V6. So you'd better check out the website "", and find the local option packages. That's so-called Toyota "take it or leave it" option package. But you can always make a special order, which might takes several weeks waiting. My 2c.

    Also note that when placing a special order, you may not get what you want. I ordered an LE with JBL, moonroof, alloys, and autodimming mirror. It took 7+ weeks for the car to arrive and it was missing the last two options--Toyota had denied those options. Good luck. (love my car anyway in the 1 time I've driven it so far :-)
  • I just got a 07 new camry LE. The dealer advise me to install the VIP (vehicle intrusion prevention). But later I found the car itself has an alarm already! The dealer has charged me, but I have not time to install the VIP yet. What's the difference between the two alarm? It's necessary to spent another 600 to install another alarm?

    Whats the lowest price have ppl gotten for a Camry V6 or V4 SE?? It seems that with just a moonroof package most ppl can get the V4 SE at $21k which I am hoping to get it for in NJ. How about the V6 SE?? Whats the best price has anyone gotten it at in the NJ area?? Im hoping I can just get it at cloth with a moonroof option for about 24k anyone think it maybe possible because I know dealers rarly have the SE V6 packaged with cloth and moonroof.

    I have done quite a bit of research on the subject of the Genuine Toyota Platinum, 0 deductible, 7yr/75,000 Warranty for the 2007 Toyota Camry. I sifted through a number of threads on this forum and on Prius chat and compiled the following list of competitive dealers. The list price for this Toyota Platinum, 0 deductible, 7/75,000 warranty is $1150 (from the Toyota Financial Services official website). These were the prices I found:
    Midwest Superstores (Kansas, area code 620) $520
    Mechanicsville Toyota (Virginia, area 804)$520(+2.5%VA tax)
    McGeorge Toyota (Virginia, area 804)$520(+2.5% VA tax)
    Stones Toyota (area code 208) $585
    Dan Porter Toyota (area code 701) $590
    Greenfield Toyota (Mass) $635
    Crown Toyota (area 785) $685
    Toyota City (area 763) $835
    GlenBurnie Toyota (area 410) Non Toyota Warranty $877 (recommended in this forum) $825

    I went with Midwest Superstores who gave me a great price without any hassle. I gave him my credit card over the phone, along with my purchase date/VIN number/miles; I had the official Toyota order form in 2 days; and I just received the Toyota Platinum Warranty Contract about 2 weeks later. The person I dealt with said I had gotten some end of month special and he could not guarantee that price being available, but you could always go with either of the two Virginia dealers and pay the the $13 sales tax difference. If you have already purchased this warranty and paid significantly more for it (My San Diego dealers all wanted between $1295 and $1430 for it!!), you have 30 days in which to cancel for no charge, and you can buy it again from one of these guys at the discount price. After 30 days, you can still cancel and get a pro-rated refund and still save money buying elsewhere. Unlike the new car purchase where once you have bought, you are stuck, the Toyota Warranty does give you an opportunity to correct a possible overpayment.

    With all due respect to mitzij and jimbres, I have gotten my moneys worth out of extended service contracts. Last year, I got a remanufactured transmission for my 2001 Toyota Landcruiser with 71,000 miles on it ($3600 repair) and power lumbar support repairs (at about $300 each), and I still have another year and 15,000 miles to go. I have a 2000 BMW 528i that had most of the front end suspension (ball joints, tie rod ends, etc.), 2 thermostats, power steering hoses, other misc engine parts replaced totalling at least $3000. At about $500, I cannot imagine not getting a warranty for your new Camry. Even if you do not plan to keep the car past the original warranty, if you sell the car privately, it is bound to be worth that much more to the prospective buyer (which car would you buy in 2010, the 2007 Camry with Platinum transferable warranty or the one without, all other factors being reasonably comparable). This forum has been enormously helpful to me for not only the purchase of this vehicle but four others in the last 2 years (2 for me and 2 for friends). I know this was a long post, but I felt the information was worth sharing with a website that just saved me $930 on a warranty!

    I would really try to look for a good deal on the 2007 Camry LE. The 2007 Camry LE, totally restyled/re-engineered lists for about $21,300 with standard side airbags and floormats. In Southern California, it has not been uncommon to see advertised prices of $18,900, and I actually got mine for $18,700 after a bit of competition between 2 dealers here. There are some incentives (see, New cars, incentives and rebates, to find out exactly how much now), but I think if it only ends up with a $1000 or $2000 difference, you will have a car worth that much more when you go to sell it. In the meantime, you are driving a car that looks like the latest version and not last year's. Just a suggestion (I leased a 1994 BMW 740i when the 1995 restyled models were out, and I soon regretted the decision. Fortunately, it was only a 2 year lease. I also leased a 1999 BMW 740il in the Spring of 1999 when the 2000 models were already out, but they were virtually identical cars, and I was fine with that move)

    zaku, The best quotes from NJ are Hudson Toyota in Jersey City. They quoted 500 over invoice for LE's and 1000 over for XLE's. I got to think the SE would be similar range. I did not buy yet, so I don't know if they try to jack up the price with last minute add ons. At least one post a few weeks ago did bought from them and was very happy. Use the search function and search this forum for "Hudson".

    Good luck.

    the lowest price quote I got here in houston is from ron carter toyota in alvin $19977. thats for a 2007 camry with floor mats as the only option. if you want to save about a thousand bucks and like to travel , try getting it from charles maund toyota in austin , they offered it to me at 18999 and a drive out price of 20413.
    regarding financing , try online like capital one or eloan or check out auto loan rates here in texas using

    Thanks for that great info!!! I just ordered my TCH from Mossy in PB and the sales person already mentioned getting the extended warranty. I've been doing some reseach but you've done it all for me! :D Thx again!
  • Saturday, I got a new 07 Camry LE (silver), AUTO with mats and first aid kit for 19350 plus tax and tag.
  • smslegendsmslegend Posts: 3
    Whats the best price for a Camry SE V6 in the Los Angeles Area? I got an email from the Internet Sales Manager from Power Toyota in Irvine for $100 over invoice. Thats all he said and Im not sure if that only applies to LE or other trims. Thanks
  • Saturday, I got a new 07 Camry LE (silver), AUTO with mats and first aid kit for 19350 plus tax and tag.

    Is this the Out-The-Door price including Freight, Documentation Fees, etc? The $19,350 would appear to be at invoice or slightly below.
  • the out of door is about 20600.
  • jdr1jdr1 Posts: 2
    I live in upstate NY & the dealers here are telling me that they can't give me any discount off the sticker. They say it's the SE is hard to get, only get 1 or 2 in at a time & they can sell them right away. Any suggestions?
  • jdr1jdr1 Posts: 2
    Was that $500 over invoice for a SE? If so could you tell me the dealers/addresses. Thats the best I've heard. Thanks
  • njeraldnjerald Posts: 688
    Yes, +$500 and you can see the inventory, price, colors and options at (Fitgerald Auto Malls).

    That's high for my area but good for the East Coast, it seems.

    They have a number of dealerships for various manufacturers with two for Toyotas, Chambersburg, PA and Gaitherburg, MD.

    You'll have to look them up on the web.

    They show 74 Camrys in stock or on the way to them.

    Unless you're wanting a Hybrid, I'd wait. Camry is and will be America's best selling sedan. They will not be scarce and dealers won't have trouble getting them once the flush desire for the new body style is over. They will be discounted just as in the past soon. The V6 may be hot right now, but Toyota will make one of these for everyone wanting one. Don't be shy about going out of the area to shop if your dealer is gouging you.
  • baccus49baccus49 Posts: 60
    Thanks baccus49. What was the out-the-door price? Do you have a breakdown of what charges you paid? Title, license, doc fees, taxes, extra options, ...
  • concertkeyconcertkey Posts: 59
    I ordered an LE V6 and SE V6 today from Caldwell Toyota in West Caldwell, NJ. I worked with the Internet dealer and bought both cars for $50.00 over invoice. They were great to work with and because I ordered two cars, threw in window etching for free. We are probably looking at the end of June or the beginning of July for delivery. I'm very pleased with the dealership and am still having a hard time believing that I bought both of these cars so close to invoice. :)
  • zaku178zaku178 Posts: 15
    How much was $50 over invoice and what options did you get concertkey? Im looking to purchase a Camry SE V6 but every dealer I've spoken with in NJ is offering it at MSRP or a couple hundred off MSRP
  • joecarnutjoecarnut Posts: 215
    Hi martinf,
    I'm in so cal too, and would like to know what dealerships you were dealing with that you mentioned.
    Congratulations on the new ride!
  • njeraldnjerald Posts: 688
    Mine was an XLE 4 cyl. - wanted more comforts than any LE can give.

    Options - Leather, Heated Seats, TC/VSC, Mats (Floor and Trunk), 50 State emissions.

    $27,344 MSRP
    $24,669 Dealer Invoice
    $24,969 Price Paid
    2,272 Sales Tax
    205 License/Doc
    $27,456 Total Out the Door

    I have installed mudguards, am installing dual exhaust now, and will add the SE spoiler on Saturday.
  • concertkeyconcertkey Posts: 59
    The cost of the car was $26,838.00. The car lists for $30,308.00 and the invoice I have is $26,787.00. The options are All Season Tires, 50 States Emissions, Sport Leather Package (includes heated seats and outside mirrors), JBL Stereo, VSC, Remote Starter, Wheel Locks, Color-Keyed Spoiler, Floor/Trunk Mats and Moonroof. I didn't want the moonroof or the JBL but was told by two dealers that Toyota wasn't shipping the car without those features into the NY/NJ area. I wasn't planning on spending this much money on the car, but when it was offered so close to invoice, I was suddenly able to justify it! :)

    On April 10, I bought a 2007 Camry LE, 4cyl., automatic, floormats for $18,700 (List Price $21,279) plus CA sales tax and registration. I went with Mossy Toyota who originally had advertised $18,996, but lowered the price to match a deal from Toyota Carlsbad of $18,700. Kearny Mesa Toyota advertises $18,990, as has Frank Toyota (San Diego)and Bob Baker Toyota (San Diego, El Cajon?). Toyota of Orange was willing to match the $18,700, but Toyota of Cerritos, Hollywood Toyota, and Toyota of North Hollywood were not interested at that price. I was surprised that the L.A. dealers were not more aggressive, but I do recall buying a 2001 LandCruiser for $10,000 off list (advertised price) from this same San Diego location (different dealer owner at the time, Pacific Beach Toyota), and I was surprised to find no other dealer in L.A. or Orange County at that time wanted to even come close to matching that deal either. San Diego may have become more competitive. If you plan to keep the vehicle or, even if you plan on reselling it at some point, I would highly recommend the Toyota Platinum Extended Warranty. I went with the 7yr/75,000 mile warranty which lists for $1150, but can be purchased from Midwest Superstores (Kansas,area code 620), Mechanicsville Toyota (Virginia, area 804), or McGeorge Toyota (Virginia, area 804) for as little as $520. Mossy and the other dealers wanted between $1295 and $1430 for the same coverage. With all due respect to mitzij and jimbres, I was just organizing my service invoices for both my 2001 Landcruiser and my 2000 528i. Although I overpaid for the Toyota Platinum Warranty on the Landcruiser(I was far less internet savvy at the time), I have gotten a $3600 remanufactured transmission, two $300 power lumbar supports, a $200 seatbelt repair, and various and sundry other repairs. Even the BMW has benefited from extensive front end repairs (ball joints, tie rod ends), thermostats, and power head rest repairs which have totalled over $3000. Modern vehicles with multiple power accessories can be expensive to repair. I think $520 is a fair price for the piece of mind and can be a significant positive factor if you sell the vehicle during the warranty period.

    Check with Toyota of Orange, or if you don't mind the trip south, Mossy Toyota, Kearny Mesa Toyota, Toyota of Carlsbad, Frank Toyota, or Bob Baker Toyota. They have been very aggressively pricing the Camry LE's, but I don't know about the SE. See my previous post regarding my thoughts on the Toyota Platinum Warranty. Good luck! I think it's a great car, in any configuration, and about 30% to 40% less than the equivalent Lexus ES350

    I just joined the Forum and was trying to get dealer's quotes. I entered my zip code (19204)in SC and was informed there were no dealers in that area. This is in Columbia and I know there are several Toyota dealers there. Where did I go wrong?
