#9036 of 10203 Edmunds $500 Rebate
Mar 21, 2012 (5:18 am)
Looks like the $500 rebate is only good for non-Hybrid Camry's. I found rebate on one of the pages while looking up the Camry (near the top of the page in a banner)
*Terms and conditions: Offer expires on 5/1/2012. Customer must purchase or lease and take delivery of an eligible 2011 or 2012 Toyota Corolla or Camry (excluding hybrid models) from dealer stock at a Toyota Retailer in the U.S. on or before 5/1/2012. The offer is not valid for any eligible vehicle purchased or leased prior to receiving this certificate. Rebate claims postmarked after 5/1/2012 will not be honored.

Offered in Eastern Mass a Camry LE with power seats and carpets for $20,800 including destination (but plus tax/registration/paperwork). They would not offer the $500 financing rebate I heard about, anyone know anything about that? Thanks.

#9040 of 10203 Camry SE V6 with Conv. Package buying experience
Mar 22, 2012 (11:38 am)
Thank you to all on this forum for ideas and suggestions. Our buying process took about 2 months. We wanted to buy Camry SE V6 with Conv. package + moonroof + cloth seats which has MSRP 29,435. We wanted to get the best price on the car we were looking for. We started our search by contacting Costco Auto buying program. We went and test drove the car and got the costco pricing which was $400 below invoice + tax and lic. Then we requested quotes from dealers on edmunds.com and truecar.com in our area. The quotes from truecar.com dealers were around $800 below invoice + tax and lic. This gave us a good idea of the pricing. We knew that there was some more room for negotiation. Now the next plan was to contact dealers within 100 miles of our zip code. Our goal was to get the lowest written quote and have that beaten. Finally one dealership gave us a quote for $1000 below invoice + tax and lic. We then went to the nearest dealership in our area and offered a price of $1300 below invoice + tax and lic. The dealership agreed on the price and we bought our new car at the best price possible. Our final price with tax and lic was $28,300 OTD. We have $500 edmunds rebate which will bring down our price of the car to $27,800 out-the-door. Sweet Deal! We had arranged our own financing. Dealer's finance and insurance office tried to push us on buying extended warranty and other protection. We declined everything. Finally we bought our 8yrs/125K extended warranty from out of state Molle Toyota dealer in Kansas City for $1350. Hope this experience helps others in negotiating.
#9042 of 10203 2012 Camry XLE w/o Nav does not come with xm radio
Mar 23, 2012 (2:08 am)
Just purchased new 12 Camry XLE, without nav, figuring top of the line XLE come xm radio ready, but the touch screen system does not come with satilite capability. Its my fault for not double checking while signing the papers. So now
I m searching for kits that interface with the touch screen am/fm/cd. Happy with the purchase but very disapointed with the radio situation.

You did very well not to buy the Nav/Entune option (not to mention the more expensive JBL or HDD Nav)! You may like special content only provided by XM Radio, but that you maybe able to find an add on (way cheaper than $1000 extra for the option that includes such). However I am not using XM and wont pay the monthly subscription fee after the 3 month trial ends. Free Pandora gives me more than enough for such. I wont even pay for Entune $5/month after the 3 years as my smartphone has all the applications and more already. So if I could swap and save $1000 I would have done such with you. I have XLE Hybrid.
By the way, the navigation is a joke. If i had to listen to its instructions, I would have gone through way more traffic jammed routes or places that make no sense to get to my destinations. Not to mention it wont allow me to input addresses that exists etc strange faults.
So the best in my view is an XLE plus inconvenience package.
