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.

Does 25400 include or exclude sales tax?

#9620 of 10203 2012 Camry SE
Sep 03, 2012 (10:05 am)
I live in New Orleans and am trying to purchase the SE today if possible.
Here is the message I received from one of the larger dealers here. Waiting on a couple other online quotes:
For a gray/silver one with power seats and window tint is $23,900 before any rebates. Finance at 0% -$500 rebate offerred. College Grad rebate -$1,000. That is $22,400.
If you want the leather/suede seats, we can add them at the dealership for another $1,000.
Total price $23,400.
If you buy one with the factory installed leather/suede seats, it comes with the naviagion and etunes and will probably cost over $25K.
The dealership also offers lifetime warranty and 3-year or 25K miles gratis maintence.
He said that installing the leather/suede seats at the dealership would help keep the price down ($23,400 vs. over $25K), but I wouldn't get the navigation, etunes, etc.
No sunroof, power driver seats and tinted windows included.
Any responses would be very much appreciated!
#9621 of 10203 first impressions of Camry hybrid LE
Sep 03, 2012 (8:07 pm)
I just returned from a trip on which I put on about 1000 miles combined city and interstate driving. couldn't be more impressed, especially with the power on the car and the smoothness. Chassis must be very hard steel because it just absorbs the vibration from the road, yet you feel like you are handling the road so it is sportier than my previous Camry (a gas version). Last week I was getting service for my Prius and told the service rep that i had purchased the Camry; he said i would like it; it drives just like a Lexus. I never drove a Lexus for comparison sake but given the way this Camry performed I imagine the service rep was correct. it also was very comfortable. spent some time seated in the back seat while someone else drive and it is spacious and comfortable. I am averaging 40.8 mpg over the last 1200 miles (according to my display statistics).
#9622 of 10203 NY lease Camry Se
Sep 04, 2012 (6:48 am)
Protective package; mats; sunroof; Nav w/entune; power drivers seat. MSRP $26630. capitalized cost was $25600, buyout is $14890. Payments $149 for 36/12K, with used A4 KBB valuation of $2500 and $3000 down. I got $500 for the weekend credit from Toyota.
Unfortunately I had little leverage - no other car in the region had that package, and it was exactly what I wanted. Nothing more, nothing less ... a smart sedan with nav and blue tooth, & sunroof.
Also purchased the Platinum wrap around package - as I intend to hold the car for the next 8 years. Cost an additional $1000.
