Toyota Camry, Sedan
Jul 01, 2009 (8:57 pm)
Purchased 2010 Camry XLE V6 two weeks ago. Car has all options including nav, heated seats, push button start and mats.
I paid $ 29,040.50 for the Camry with no trade. MSRP was $ 32,665 We took 3.9% financing for 60 months through Toyota as no rebate was offered.
This is our 3rd Camry (2005 LE & 2007 LE) but our first V6. I really enjoy the extra power going up the hills. I noticed the 4 cylinder was always downshifting, but this one is a lot smoother overall.
Nav is over kill due to price but it came on car so I took it.
Had JBL on all cars because the sound is really good. Only thing I wish for is a full size spare. Our 2005 was rear ended at 70 mph and full size spare saved family in my opinion.
We currently have 3 toyota vehicles ( 08 Sienna, 10 Prius, and 10 Camry). They are all great. If you are looking for sporty then look elsewhere. They do what they were designed to do very well.

Jul 02, 2009 (3:49 am)
I just purchased my new Camry Hybrid a few weeks ago and I was able to get it for 6,000 off MSRP. It was cheaper to purchase than the 2008 Prius that I already own and I could not be happier with the car. I bought mine from Jim Coleman in Bethesda. My only problem with Toyota is that the dealers are not good at servicing the cars in my area. Most non-dealers are much better at taking car of customers after the sale. Why can't Toyota demand higher customer satisfaction from the service end? None in the metro DC area dealers have a good rating. This is my third Camry, and I love these cars for the type of travel that I normally do. My last Camry had only one part go bad in eight years which was a bulb on the dash that I easily replaced in 10 minutes. Those who say that the Fusion is better, should look at Ford's repair history first and compare it to the Toyota Camry.
Oh what a feeling..........................

We purchased a XLE V6 (first Toyota) two weeks ago in SE PA. Our price was 27300 (w/o nav) plus the 1000 rebate. I guess demographics plays a part in the price.
You should be able to get it at invoice or below.
Handling is good. I can't complain. I wish I could drive it more but it is my wife's car.

What is the sales tax in SE PA? Also, how much below invoice did you get the XLE for?

Tax is 6%. 300 below invoice. I showed them the fitzmall internet price (27004) but they did not match. Once I said 27300 they jumped on it. I should have started lower. I got the graduate rebate too.

abchin486 I am in Massachusetts and thinking of buying a Camry LE from IRA. Can you tell me which of the IRA locations did your mom get her car from and will you mind sharing the name of the sales person. Thank you.

#7496 of 10203 Interim VIN issue
Jul 05, 2009 (7:56 am)
Last week I went to a dealer in NC and negotiated for a 2010 Camry LE.The car was supposed to be at the dealers place July 24th.Its still in factory I think.After I made the deposit the dealer said that the VIN would cange when I take delivery.He says that since the car is not built yet it gets assigned an interim VIN and a new VIN will be assigned after its built.
I think the dealer tricked me on this. Is he trying to swap an existng car and install the options like sunroof,leather seats and alloy wheels OEM? If not how can I make sure all options are factory installed?

In NC, you can check the inventory of all of the dealerships on the Toyota website.
I had ordered a 2007 with features that none of the local dealerships had, and I was able to track it, get assigned from the port to the local dealership where I placed my order, and I knew exactly when it was going to hit the dealer lot.
They may have seen one available at the port when you were negotiating, yet when they went to grab it....some other dealership had it so they're going after another.
Personally, I think the line about VIN numbers changing is BS. But give them some leeway to find your car and bring it in. They swap around all the time to get the specific vehicles they need with their allotments.
It's been a couple years since I've been crawling thru the inner workings, but there are a number of options that are installed at the port, and others that get installed locally at the dealership or thru a local company they sub it out to.
I know my mirror for instance, was installed locally. That option wasn't on the spec sheet coming in from the port, but I knew the dealer had ordered the part and was putting it on. My local dealership also had a leather shop that did all of their leathers.
