Congratulations on your new Camry! I am glad to hear you have found a
salesperson who is willing to work for you. In my limited new car buying
experience (4 new cars in past 10 years), I have not met one yet.
I bought a 05 Camry LE about 5 weeks at Toyota of Richardson (where my
wife bought her 96 Camry in 1995). Even I got a very good price ($19,300 OTD for
05 LE with extra mile package, alloy wheels, door sills, tint window, and
7 year/75k extended warranty), but I had to say the buying experience was not
I went to Toyota of Plano too. The salesperson and manager were refused
to negotiate for 05 LE with floor mat at $17,200 before tax and tag even I showed them that Toyota of Vandergriff at Arlington offered me the same deal. So I left
the dealership. I was surprised that no one called me later from Plano since most
dealerships will call you why did not buy the car at your first shopping stop there.
I then went to Toyota of Richardson, presented the same deal, but they did not have
the color (mineral green) with floor mat only, instead they have one with extra mile A and alloy wheel, tint window, door sills. The car had about 200 miles on it when
I had the test drive. The next day I offered 18,000 before tax and tag, no deal.
Three days after, they accepted my offer (OTD $19,300).
Dealships are entitled to make money. But the way they treat buyers?????
I am just glad now we have web site like this one to give us better fighting tools
when buying a new/used car.
By the way, we love our Camrys. The 96 has never had any problems (now has
100K miles). I hope the new Camry will do the same.
Good luck, and enjoying your new Camry.

I feel that Camry LE V6 is a better option than XLE V4. The car is running great.
The price before the TTL was 19200.
#2001 of 10203 Rebates / Deals on Camry?
Jun 04, 2005 (6:02 am)
My folks are going to buy a new Camry in the next week or two. They are interested in the Standard model with automatic transmission. They have seen ads listing the car with automatic for $16,250 and $16,500 from two different dealers. The MSRP is $19,772. My folks would be happy to buy the car for that price, and it is below the invoice prices I have seen, but I doubt it is the best deal. First, it is an advertised price, so it's the price the dealer wants. Second, some of the posts here show deals on an LE model that are only slightly more.

Just from my experience, anything that is advertised is a loss leader and is probably the best price you're going to get for that particular model, and often you'll actually see individual stock #'s or "x" available at that price. So my guess is that you're probably at the bottom or very close to it.
#2003 of 10203 looking for 2005 camry le in madison wisconsin area
Jun 04, 2005 (11:39 am)
I'm currently in the market for an '05 camry LE. The dealership I went to for a test drive gave me an internet quote of $18,888 - $700 rebate = $18,188 (only optional accessory are floor mats). That's without TTL. From what I read on the board, that is not the greatest deal compared to what people are getting elsewhere. Has anybody had experience buying in the madison area and suggestions on where I should look and what price I should be looking for. I do have ability to travel to chicago area as I heard i may get better deals there, but have no idea where to look.
Thanks for your help!

I bought a STD Camry in Virginia Beach for $15,700 out the door. It was advertised for $14,888(now its $14,444!). (dealer invoice is over $17k, so don't know how they are selling them at that price).This included a $399 processing fee, taxes, tags, lic, and freight and the $750 rebate (which just went to $1250! Southeastern region). The only difference between the STD and the LE is full size spare, remote keyless entry, color coordinated mirrors, power driver's seat, and the tires are Goodyear Integrity (vice Continentals on the Std, which receives a higher rating anyway on tirerack.com). I had Integrity's on my Town & Country and they are comparable on traction and stopping. I also heard the Std has a different 5spd automatic transmission than the rest. Don't know if this is true or not. The LE is being advertised for $16,333. I couldn't see the extra 2 grand for the LE, unless a power seat is really wanted. I have 550 miles on it so far, and any chance I get I give my wife an excuse to drive it. The four cyl engine has plenty of power for me, and I grew up believing 8 cyl was the only way. We bought the car mainly due to reliability, the gas mileage is good on the highway. I got 22 mpg all city driving. I've only filled it up once and still have 1/2 tank left, so hard to get an average mpg result. The steering wheel controls are good (just wish they included a mute button). Also wish the exterior mirrors folded in. Overall, very happy with it.

I bought an 05 Camry LE recently in the Milwaukee area. The price I got was a bit lower than your quote (would be about 17800-17900 versus your 18188). The best quote I got was Wilde Toyota (wildetoyota.com). They say in their ad midwest's largest toyota dealer. They would be a straight shot down 94 from Madison, then a bit south. Closer than Chicago. BTW I ended up getting my Camry from a different dealer that was closer to my home but matched the wilde toyota quote.

O.K. I'm looking for a 05 camry SE 4cyl automatic. I'm also getting vehicle stability control, rear spoiler and aluminum wheels. The MSRP is 22,990 and the invoice is $20,385. I don't think there's any rebate at this time in my area, but if I were to buy now, what should I shoot for?

Jun 06, 2005 (10:29 am)
I'm told by a dealer in Peabody MA that Toyota does not ship '05 Camry LE's with stability control and head/side airbags to this region (Boston's North Shore). Is there anyone who can confirm or deny that claim? If it's true, how far do I have to travel to get a '05 Camry LE with these features???
Thanks in advance.
