Little Apple Toyota Kansas. That was not the OTD price. We traded a 2011 Camry. The 22200 was just the car. Tax here is 8.55% and dealer fees are only 149. Also there is a link on toyota website for the $250 prepaid card for doing a search. so after that is redeemed car price would be 21950. We signed the papers yesterday so just waiting for the car to be delivered. Should have it by tomorrow. The way I got the best price was contacting about 15 different toyota dealers via their websites. I just basically told them what I wanted. It rained all day Friday and Saturday within 150 miles so they were all eager to make a deal anyway possible. I just took my lowest quote to my sales guy and he spoke with GM. They probably hated me. I also made sure i was preapproved for the 0%. I think that is one of the reasons that most dealers were eager to give me good prices so quick. Finally made deal, they didn't have the one I wanted but were more then willing to swap with another dealer.

hi, thanks for sharing.
Got another question, how to use that 250$ debit card? It requires the VIN, but when I can sure the car is what i will buy. I do this before sign the contract ? or before process the financing program? thanks

Have you checked out the prices for the Camry SE at Jim Barkley Toyota in Asheville, NC? They are a no haggle price dealer. They also have no doc or dealer fees. I think you would still have to add the 500 if you go with the special financing, but that would still give you a good price.

Fully loaded, convenience package, safety package, moonroof, premium hdd package with entune, 10 jbl speakers, 7 inch touch screen, blind spot monitor. The lowest price I've been offered is $31,293. I live in Columbus, Ohio. Can anyone tell me if this is a good price?? I've received quotes from 7 dealerships and this is the best I've received. On kbb it says the invoice price is 28k+
I appreciate any insight in advance! Please and thank you!

you put in the vin after you purchase the car. I just took delivery today and did it. after you put in the vin and code from doing the search it will then want you to enter the name and address.

Numbers I have been given:
2012 LE: MSRP = 23,585, sale price = 20,960; 36 month lease, 12K per mile; .00001 mf, 13,786 residual, $300 down, $239 a month. Does that sound reasonable?

I purchased mine at Sandy Spring Toyota in Roswell, GA (just a few miles from downtown Atlanta). i had to fly down there, which cost me $129 but on the other hand i will be getting an additional $250 off the car as a result of a promotion at the toyota home page. With the $250 gift car from toyota the final cost of the car was 23031 + transportation there + tax + tags (must pay this tomorrow; around $730). The sales person was ... . The only thing I have been a little disappointed in is that my LE did not come with the touch screen or the electronic seat that LEs in my own area come with as standard equipment. But, then again, I have not seen another Camry hybrid that cost as little as mine and if I was given the choice between those items and my car without them, for less money --even if it was just several hundred dollars, i probably would have taken the car without them. actually, for all we know the touch screen could be a problem in the future.
This is the second Toyota that I have purchased at that dealership; the last one was a new 2010 Prius II and I also thought i got an outstanding deal . Both times I purchased the car over the phone without seeing the actual car that I picked up and both times I have been very happy with the transaction. I still find it very nerve racking to buy a new car and take every precaution and get everything in writing before giving my credit card over the phone; but that is a formality. I have found the dealership and my sales person(same one as previously) to be honest, straight forward; no negotiating, but of course I knew that I had a very good price at the time of purchase and if i could get the car lower at that particular time --just a couple of weeks ago-- I did not think it would be for much less. I figure that the dealership has to make some money on the sale also. For my next car i will go back to that same dealership to see what they have to offer. I should add that i was a little concerned about the trunk sticking a bit --turns out there is no problem-- and i took the car to my local dealership. They welcomed me as if I had bought the car there. A slaesperson even came out and discussed the trunk with me and said he thought my deal was fabulous, something they would not match. Everyone has been very encouraging and there is no competetive angst from either sales people or service. As with other toyotas car comes with 2 years service and i will have that done at my local Toyota.

One other thing about the price i paid for my hybrid that is probably obvious; aside from the gift card that comes from Toyota and has nothing to do with the dealership, I did not get any rebates or special financing, etc. anything along those lines was included in the price of my car.

On Aug 30th, I bought Hybrid LE with basic modle for $22997, OTD $25326 in Davis, CA. I drove 100 miles from San Mateo county where I live to pick up my car, paid all by cash. I made this deal all through cell phone talking with dealers. I did more than 5 quotes in San Francisco Bay area, the lowest pirce dealer could offer was $23700.
First, do all the research, including test drive and made the decision which car you gonna buy. Don't change your mind and buy other car else you are not familiar with.
Second, find out the rencently lowest transaction price in buyer's forum in internet. I searched the lowest price report in this forum at $23300. Also, find out the lowest price on the dealership website in your area, including dealer specialtiest, all the special rebate and discounts. I found lowest price in Fremont toyota, they had 2 specialties, $23997, after $1000 college graduate rebate is $22997, however they didn't have the blue one what I want.
Third, call all the dealers have the car in stock with in 100 miles, negotiate them with purchase price through phone only, they will invite you go to their dealership to test drive, don't go there. Tell them you wanna get the price under $23000. Most of them will decline your initial offer and say they have extra packages with the car or offer the best services, etc. Then let them know other dealer can offer this price, tell them go check it out and inform them you only sensitive with price. After these process, they will tell you they gonna talk with manager and call you right back. The reality is that, if they think the price you ask is far below they can accept, they will never call you back. Otherwise they will call you soon. After this step, only the dealers in Redwood city and Richmond called me back. Then I told rest of them, they had competitors, offtering the same price, I asked them the OTD price and the new car's mileage. Redwood city's dealership offered the little higher OTD price and higher mileage, I told them to cut down the price then they back out. At last I chose the Richomd dealer, they told me car is in Davis, and email me the quote with the real OTD price, no deposite and immediate pick up required, they are actually not very passionate after we made the deal.
