Hi Mr. ve
We are both searching for the 2012 Camry LE. I am confident the knowledge we
share is going to help us obtain the best price.
Elk grove Toyota has an ad in the Sacramento Bee for 19,500$ without power seats.
The reason their are no rebates is because business is strong for toyota. September sales were way up. Its possible toyota will have something mid month.
Look at the LA times Orange County car classified. They have 2 sections. Orange Toyota has a LE listed for 23,625 without PD for 19,500$ and the other with PD for 24,025$ for 19,995$.
I believe Robert is the fleet/internet sales manager at Orange. He is the only sales person to provide the ad price as soon as you ask. 20k for an LE is a good price. It is a waiting game for the TOY. rebate. 500-750 less will be even better.
keep in touch

Talked to Robert from Orange Toyota. He has LE models with power for 19,995$.
Talk is cheap in this business, but I believe he delivers what he promises. Nothing is for sure but have a good feeling about the deal.
I could regret it but I am waiting for a rebate from edmonds or toyota.

One dealer in Socal is offering 12 camry SE for 22800 OTD, did a quick calculation the selling price is 20884 (260 DMV fees + 80 dealer document fees + 7.75% sales tax in orange county), is this a good deal to pull the trigger?
2013 Altima and 2013 Accord are out with better specs and Toyota is still not offering any rebates to clear the 2012 camry models. I would have jump to 2013 Accord but prices are too high compare to 2012 Camry. Or should I wait to see the 2013 Camry? (Believe it will just be carry over)

I just got a quote of 20.998 for the 2012 Camry SE with floor mats. Plus tax, lic and 80 doc fee. This is in No Cal - Bay Area.
Seriously thinking about that offer but don't want to miss any new Toyota rebates in November...if they have them.

What dealer in So ca?
20900 seems like a good price for a 12 SE. Toyota is having a great year and does not need to offer rebates. However, the new accord could change this because of the added standard features of the 2013 Accord.
The new rebates will be here in November, perhaps waiting three weeks will save us an additional 500-1000$.
Robert in Fleet Toyota of Orange offered a LE for 20k. Call and find out the price for a SE.
let me know

What dealer was the one that offered 22800 OTD for camry SE? I am also looking to buy a Toyota Camry SE 2012. I was searching in several dealer In the Los Angeles County area and the cheapest I found was 21200 and OTD would be 23,300. Friends of mine are recommending to wait for end of the year specials,and some say I could get the same model for 2100 OTD if I wait until December. What would you recommend? I think we can get a good price on the Camry when the 2013 come in.

It is Tustin Toyota.
One thing you should put into consider is that the price for end year sale will definitely be better but don't know about the inventory. There is a chance that very limited color choice left at that time.
I am having 2nd thought of the 2013 Honda Accord Sport, MSRP at 24980 compare to 24680 for the Camry SE, hoping to see if I could get around 3000~3500 off MSRP in a few month since I am not familiar for the Accord pricings. I understand that the Accord will always be a bit expensive compare to the Camry, but I can justify 1K~1.3K difference for the extra standard features like push start, right side view camera, rear view camera, better engine and MPG. Very hard choice now..

Good day Zonecar
Well, someone has been completing their homework. This sounds like a good price. 2012 for about 21k purchase price, I think that is right. You might want to make one last phone call to the fleet manager at Toyota of Orange and give him the exact details. It could mean an extra 100-200$. This dealer seems to be all about volume and lowest price.
You are right about the 2013 Accord. It has many more standard features than the
LE. The most notable is the standard ALLOY WHEELS. Another huge advantage with the SE is the upgraded seats and foam.
good luck and please share the final price and any interesting details with the forum.

Did some research and decide to list here for reference
Advantage for 2012 Camry SE base (MSRP24680): 6 speakers (4 on accord), extra airbag on leg area, better Sport fabric SofTex seats
Advantage for 2013 Accord Sport (MSRP24980): Rearview camera, DUAL ZONE AC control (standard on all accord), 10 way power driver seats, dual exhaust pipe design, better engine hp and MPG.
I am on the fence now, so guess I would wait for a couple month and see if the Accord price would drop. A car is for to keep 5~6 years so the decision is important.

Great research ZONECAR
Let me share a few thoughts regarding my preference for the LE vs. SE. The principal reason for the SE is the relative small increase of about 700$. Included in the upgrade is, alloy wheels, sport seats, 17" tires, upgraded suspension,fog lamps, paddle shifters, heated side mirrors, and a few other exterior features.
Bigger size tires (17") cost more to replace, alloy wheels are great but LE wheels do the job. The sport seats are a great plus, but fabric does not retain as much heat and cold.
When do you really need to use paddle shifters? Sport suspension is great if you live in open road country. It also is a rougher ride. Are fog lamps really going to make a difference on So. Ca freeways. Heated side mirrors- something that will
not work after 36k miles.
I keep cars for 10 years and do more homework when the time arrives to buy. We should share info ld752 and i am at yahoo. Please share your thoughts and prove me wrong.
Toyota is having a monster year but the Accord, Malibu, Altima will make things interesting as we head for home in 2012.
Great sharing information and may the best person help the other in our
drive (n.p.i) for the lowest price in the So. Ca. toyota market.
