Congratulations Richard and Celest
I am the person who originally posted the message in the forum about Robert
at Toyota of Orange. After calling many Toyota dealers he was the only
salesperson who stated the price immediately. We all know the frustration
of dealing with car dealers so it was refreshing to talk with a car salesperson
who delivers what they say......so far.
It is interesting that I was the one who posted the message and still haven't
purchased the 2012 LE Camry. You would think that Longo, the largest dealership in the world would offer lower prices than Toyota of Orange, but
they are much higher.
Lets hope Robert continues this strategy of sales and that more prospective
Camry shoppers will patronize this dealer.

If you are in the process of car shopping, using online forums and tools and plan to visit a dealer soon, a reporter would like to hear from you. Please email PRedmunds.com by Tuesday, November 13, 2012 and provide a few lines about your experience so far.

I just got the Camry SE with power seats for $20,990 and 0% APR for 60 mos at Toyota of Orange.

Congrats on the SE with power seats.
Your price was what I paid for the Camry SE without the power seats, but So Cal was not realistic location for me.
0% is also a great perk from Toyota.

Camry SE with Nav, Mats and Power driver seat = $23,000 + tax & license. Does that sound right? This is a bay area dealer in California. Should I pull the trigger? It's a 0% 60months finance. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

you mind telling which dealer in Nothern CA? I'm in the Bay Area and looking for the same car and options. So far they're quoting me $23k plus tax and fees.

I bought the Camry SE with Mats. No Nav and no power driver seats.
Paid just under 21K plus tax/lic/doc fee. Got 0.9% 60 months in October. Toyota has dropped it to 0% since then.
Your price is 2K more than what I paid.
The question is whether the Nav plus Power seats should cost you that 2K extra.
I don't think they run that much.
I bought my car at Vallejo Toyota thru Jason Sangmaster who has great reviews online and was honest with no surprises. I told him what offers I had found and asked him what he could offer. He offered the best price that I could find in the Bay Area. See if he can beat your current offer.

I think the $23k quote is a bit high. I got a guarantee certificate online through truecar from Capitol Toyota for $22,600 with the options below. I assume then this new quote should be my base price for negotiation. I wonder if it's possible to get down to $22k.
STANDARD PAINT (-PAINT)
CLASSIC SILVER METALLIC (1F7)
50 STATE ULEV2 EMISSIONS (FE)
BLACK/ASH, FABRIC SEAT TRIM (FF15)

For the Camry SE with Nav and power seats you might be able to negotiate downward toward 22K.
I would figure out "dealer cost" for NAV and Power seats and add that to whatever the lowest price is in this blog for the Camry SE base.
FYI - I paid 21K for the 'base" SE model
What you would need is to get some other quotes such as the So Cal Toyota dealer mentioned in this blog , etc to offer as leverage locally in the Bay Area.
As stated earlier I would recommend Jason at Vallejo Toyota once you have your price "homework" done.

What you bought is exactly what I'm looking for Camry SE with power seats. The least quote I got through email is $21,344 along with trunk/carpet mat set. Another dealer is ready to beat that price by $200. So my least price now is $21,144. Any advice on how to get a still lower price? How did you get 0% APR for 60 months? I only see 0% for 36 months.
