#9262 of 10004 Re: 2012 Camry LE at DCH Toyota in Torrance, Cali [ballance_k]

DCH Toyota in Torrance is located at 2955 Pacific Coast Highway, Torrance, CA 90505. Their website http://www.torrancetoyota.com. I cannot disclose personnel info per forum policy.
Our deal was for a brand new (not demo) car with only 12 miles.
I noticed many customers waiting for their cars in the showroom during my purchase. So I think this dealership had many satisfied customers. Hopefully, you will be able to negotiate and find great deals here too.

Went to Bill Kidds in Baltimore area last night and after some back and forth the lowest deal I could get on an XLE with leather and convenience but no navigation was $27,600 on the road.
I have seen posts where people have said $26,500 on the road. Is this possible?

It's Fred Haas Toyota World off I45. I did all communication through emails.
I could have negotiated down a couple of hundred bucks more, though.
I'm happy with the car. It's hard to find one with everything, especially factory installed leather without moonroof which I hate. The internet saleman was able to find one and shipped to the dealer.

Got my 4i XLE with leather and conveniece last night. I purchased from Jerry's Toyota just outside of Baltimore. They include tires for life, tire rotations for life and car washes for life. Good experience overall. Here is the breakdown of the pricing. I had a trade, but I adjusted the taxes to reflect a purchase without one.
Your Today Special: *$24,364
Dealer Processing Fee: $200
MD State Tax 6%: $1,519.44
MD State Tags: $292
Total Maryland Out The Door Price: $27,135.44
Mail in Rebate $750
With a $3000 trade it dropped the taxes by $180 but for comparison's sake I used the full selling price.
The $750 edmunds maile in rebate was hard to find but it was just extended. Mine is good for a purchase until July 15th.
Word of caution - I had a horrible experience at R&H Toyota. My sales person was as slimy as they come. He quoted me a price numerous times over the phone and through text. When I got there it went up $400. Somewhat expected but his excuse was an adding error. Anyway I noticed a rebate on the bottom of his numbers for $750. When I questioned it he said it was a mail in rebate. He included the edmunds rebate in his pricing! He said he was going to fill out all the information and mail it in for me. What a joke.

Up to 1000 miles on my Camry LE. Perfect so far. Oil level reads full and oil is crystal clear. Gas mileage is pretty much in line with expectations. Glad I bought this car instead of a Sonata. Some people including Motor Trend are complaining about steering and gas mileage on their Sonatas. MT didn't like its sluggish 6AT, either.
Read the MT test on the Camry, Sonata, and Passat. The Sonata GLS they tested got 6.5 mpg less than the Camry LE. That's a lot! The Passat finished first, but it's also more expensive and less reliable than the Camry. It also lacked a couple features. VW's have had lousy long term reliability for decades. Expect nothing to change in that department. I'll never buy another VW. I'm positive I made the right choice in buying this new Camry. No buyer's remorse with my last three Japanese sedans.
The salesman at my dealer in North Naples, FL was great - no BS. He not only met my price with a 207k mile 1997 Maxima trade-in, I got a power driver seat thrown in with the deal. That's a $400 option. Glad I didn't insist on the manual seat because it lacks lumbar support. I find myself making more seat adjustments on long drives now. It's so much easier. Get the power seat.
