I am curious how over time gas cost would make up for Hybrid premium. care to share your numbers?
We own BMW, Camry and Accord. Nothing is compared to BMW driving experience, If I were willing to pay 33K for a car, that would not be definitely a Camry.
BTW, I think dealers make much more than that. I got my 2012 Camry for $2000 below invoice (plus TTL) and dealer still makes money. I am really curious to know how much dealers pay Toyota.

Well, what would you be buying for 33k?
I would not buy a used BMW?
I would not want the maintenance of a BMW or Mercedes.
I calculated that the Hybrid costs about 3500 more than the standard car with the same features.
I did this calculation.
150K miles, divided by 44 mpg (yes above the rated, but indications are this is an achievable average MPG) * $4 (I estimate that as an average gas price over the 7 year span to reach the 150K miles.
I then figured the standard car at 150K miles, divided by 28 which i think is an average for the gas car considering around town and highway, * $4.
The savings over that span is about 7800 dollars.
The cost difference of the car is about 3500.
Then, on top of that, I believe the CVT transmission will be more reliable, the engine will experience less strain than the 4cyl.
Also, once its paid for, I'll enjoy for a longer time that 40+ MPG.
I do not anticipate a hybrid battery issue as I feel they real world data says they are VERY reliable.
Additionally, the hybrid is actually quieter and smoother than the gas only car.
This is my calculation.
On top of all of that, there is a fun factor to the game of trying to get the mpg as high as possible.

Additionally, I just got an email from another dealer who quoted me a few days ago, saying that just today Toyota released another 500 incentive for the end of June sales, so my goal at this moment is to try to squeeze down about 32K even OTD for this one.
I'm also gonna do the 0% for 4 years financing.
To any who see this, what would you buy for 32K?

You seem to have a lot of knowledge regarding the car
business. When can we expect the SUMMER FACTORY CASH INCENTIVES
from Toyota. I want to buy now but $500-1500 less would be better.
Thanks again for helpful Information.

I called a dealer and he told me the 500 incentive does not apply to the camry, but he mentioned the APR will be 1.9% starting tmrrw. How to get the 0APR? Anyone get more information?
Jun 27, 2012 (3:52 pm)
I confirmed again that the Camry had the 500 incentive from that dealer and that it was a factory incentive. Thy responded quickly with an affirmative yes.
As for the 1.9 %. That dealer you spoke with seems a bit out of touch because you can get 0% up to 48 months and 1.9 for 5 years That has been n effect since June 5 th and runs through July 9th. You can see that right now on southeasttoyota . Com. I'd say it'll prob be extended but can't say for sure right now. I cannot however confirm the 500 off on toyotas website but this one dealer is assuring me its on and he will honor it.

Thanks! I was able to see the 0 APR on Southeast.buytoyota.com. But it says "All offers require approved credit through Southeast Toyota Finance", how does this work? How can I get the dealer agree on this APR? Thanks again.
