Traded in a 2000 Camry , 148k miles on it, in so so condition for 1500
They were pretty good . Liked my experience there. Tried Boch honda earlier in the month , they played games , didn't like to deal with them anymore , will not go there in the future.

I agree with the dealers that play games and will tell you anything to get you into the dealership.

I want to thank everyone for all the great advice and pricing info. I got a much better deal after reading and rereading every post here for the last two weeks. I didn't have time to start thur or fri and didn't want to wait another month so I started yesterday, June 1. My strategy was to call dealers that had my car and color in stock.
My spill was "I'll buy today for 27.5 + TTL." The replies were "that's crazy talk", bye ; "come in and deal", no; " how about 28xxx" not today, I may check back. I was getting very discouraged and starting to question my strategy. Then bingo, I bought a car on the 10th call.
I know it's not the best deal ever, but i think I did O.K. I'm sure I would have paid more without the info learned here. I hope my numbers can help others. Thanks again.

seems too good to be true - are you sure it includes $700 destination/freight and there is usually a 500 to 700 dealer fee also?

Looks like the price walletless paid is more in line with market than what you paid - your deal seems a bit steep. What's this lifetime warranty? I've never heard of that.

I am interested in the EX 4 door automatic in So. California. What is the dealership you purchased your car from? We have dealt with several internet depts in So. Calif, who give an emailed price supposedly out the door and then change the story upon arrival at the dealership!
Were you happy with dealer and salesperson? What color did you get? Were you able to get flex cash?
Thank you for your help. Sounds like you got a good deal, especially with your trade in!
Are you loving your car?

Sounds like you purchased a third party extended warranty - it would probably a good idea to research the reputation of this company as many car buyers have had bad experiences with organizations like these. As far as extended warranties are concerned, you would be better off investing in Hondacare from one of the online sellers popular on this site.
Edit: Dylan - you might want to see if you can cancel the Fidelity plan - a peek online reveals many complaints by consumers who have had dealings with them.

Love the car. It's blue.
Kearny Mesa or Escondido dealers were the best.
Don't know if they gave me flex cash. (It wasn't on the paperwork).
I assumed I'd actually get 1750ish for the trade in. The guy a few posts up got 1500 for trading in a 2000 Camry.
To get to $385 a month with a 1750 trade in and 500 down, I think the purchase price needed to be around 22,100. I just said this is the payment I want. I let them figure out how to get there.
Patience was the key on this. It took about a week to make the deal but my wife was ready to crack.
I purchased a 2013 pilot 30 days ago and the dealer gave me 0.9% financing for 60 months to make that deal work, even though they were advertising 0.9 for up to only 36 months.
