Well apparently I got hosed then as I just purchased some extended warranties from Libertyville Toyota in IL - Toyota extra care platinum was quoted at $2,050 for 7 years 100k miles which I purchased. You stated you paid $999 for the same thing. She said she would discount it $100 with a coupon but looking at the paperwork - she never did. (Finance person) so I have to call them about that. Got the 5 year 55k mile VCP Toyota wrap - was told that added to the two years for a total of 7 years. (lube oil filter tire rotation after complimentary 2yr) Also got tire and wheel protection (road damage and unlimited balancing) for 5 years for $349. Purchased a fully loaded xle for $32,300 less $800 trade $31,500 the other day. They showed me msrp being $34,705 and invoice being $32,235.4 (after adding on something they call TDA (described to me as Toyota advertising allowance) of $488 which interestingly is not on the MSRP side) But looking at other posts here - looks like that should have been the price I should have gotten outright - so essentially they gave me nothing for my trade. So I'm ticked and going back on Monday to see if they can give me $800 more or if not I kill the deal. I had a acura rl 1998 gps magazine condition body and interior 1998 Acura RL premium with navigation but it needed ball joints, had a couple bent rims, needed new brakes and brake fluid. Cost to repair from NTB was about $3,100 so decided to trade since my retail I'd get for it would probably be about 4k as the odometer light was out. Only had 166k miles on it though. 6 cd changer, moon roof, nav, heated leather seats and premium package. too bad it only got 20mpg or I'd have fixed and kept but it took premium gas and you could watch the needle drop..

I think the planets aligned and I just had luck on my side when I got the 7yr/100k plat plan for $999. The salesman started at $2900 and went down to $1999 before I went to finance. I really was not interested in the plan, but the finance guy said "what would it take to purchase the plan today". Not really caring if I got it, I said I would love to call my wife and say I got it for $999. He left the room and came back about 2 min later and said I should call my wife and tell her the good news....As I said, I just never thought they would let it go for that, so I think it was just stupid luck and I was in the right place at the right time...He did say at $999 it was about $100 above their cost, so they are still making money on all of us.....
Good Luck on Monday

I believe that you can cancel an extended warranty within 30 days of purchase. You might want to look into canceling it if you believe you were overcharged.

Cloth versus leather: I actually prefer the feel of cloth, but my wife and sister assure me that sliding into the seat in a dress is much smoother on leather than on cloth.
#8836 of 10203 2012 Camry LE w/ Moonroof
Dec 27, 2011 (12:22 pm)
Trying to shop around for 2012 Toyota LE with moonroof. The price I got was $23,392 with power seat and moonroof options w/ grad+2.9% for 60 months. Walked away from the deal. I think base price was quoted around $22,500. Not willing to give around $3K dealer profit. Any tips and advise to expand the research. I am kind of disappointed in the local dealers.

The poster said "out the door" and that it included "everything," so that would include taxes but I wish they would stop doing that or at least specify how much of the price applied to tax, title and license.
Giving nothing but a grand total price you paid makes it harder for anyone else to compare prices because tax and license fees vary in different states and sometimes even between different cities in the same state.
If the person had a trade-in involved, that also makes the deal not comparable because the dealers play games with trade-in values either to make extra profit on the trade-in or to pay off an underwater trade-in or both.
Unitemized grand totals and trade-ins always contaminate any kind of comparison with anyone else here.
What matters is how much money went to pay the dealer for the car and any other add-on fees the dealer charged such as dealer prep charges and doc fees, was there was a trade-in, did you accept their financing or bring your own, did you buy accessories and extended warranties etc.? All those things make a difference.
