I am in the market for a 2011 Toyota Camry LE with a V-6 engine and auto transmission and have a couple of questions. I am looking for one in Texas.
a. Is finding a 2011 Camry LE V-6 in Texas difficult? I have been shopping around with a few dealerships and quite a few of them have gotten back saying it is hard to find that particular model in their stock. Is it true that procuring a 2011 V6 LE is that difficult?
b. Quite a few of the LE V6s on which I did get a quote seem to come pre-loaded with options? Is there not a market for someone who wants the reliability of a Camry with the power of a V-6 but no options? It seems I am being bound to the options. Is it always that for V-6s we have to have the options also?
I appreciate any responses I can get

Just bought off a family friend, a 2001 Camry LE, 2.2 4cyl with 346,000 miles on it for $200 bucks. Putting $400 into it to get a sticker...will put a timing belt kit in it and it is so good to go...it rides better than the Ford focus we had with 140,000 miles on it....the one that got towed to the junk yard a week ago....Even though it's old the body is in decent shape and it runs great. I hope to put 400K on it....the 2.2 is pretty durable anyway...

Good luck with it. I had a 1996 Honda Civic DX Coupe which I put 273,000 miles on. It still had the original clutch when I traded it, and was burning maybe a quart of oil every thousand miles or so. I have a 2011 Toyota Camry I'm hoping to keep maybe ten years, put 200,000 miles on it. These things really go, don't they?

Go to the Toyota website, and then build an auto. Choose the 2552 model (LE V6). That will show you what's available in your area's inventory.
It may be, that the Toyota website for your zipcode area doesn't have this capability. However, if you want to see how it works if your area is blocked out is put in 27614 as a zipcode.
I would think however, that if a person has the financial means to buy the larger engine, that they're going to want a comparably optioned vehicle as well. You may find it harder to sell in the future.
I was very interested in the V6 as well when we bought our 2007, until I extensively drove the I4.......and then bought an LE-I4. It's a great engine, and not once have I ever thought I absolutely needed more power. As far as I'm concerned, the V6 is not needed and save your money.
Good luck with whatever you choose.

A reporter would like to talk with a recent new car buyer who was considering buying used, found prices higher than expected and decided instead to buy new? Please respond to predmunds.com by 4pm Eastern on Tuesday, August 9, 2011 to be interviewed.

I bought my black Camry LE 2011 in NYC , with Aloy Weels upgraded and floor carpets for total $20700 (before tax and fee). (They gave me $1000 credit cashback + $1000 for just graduated student + 0% APR for 60 months).
With tax + registration fee, finaly I need to pay $23000 in 5 years with 0% APR., $0 downpayment.
Everymonth, I need to pay $384.
Do you think it is a good deal ?

Should post the window sticker MSRP, so can verify apples to apples (pun intended) comparison.

Thanks for your reply kiawah. I think I should drive an I4 before shrugging it off

The 2010-2011 with the I4 is even better than the 2007-2009 - engine is now a 2.5L, and is stronger than the older 2.4L.
