No doubt the tsunami and devastation last year are at the crux of the delays. They were several months behind last year due to the catastrophe, and they have apparently made up a month of that this year (but are still behind). This is quite understandable, as that was a MAJOR world problem (I'm surprised they got back on track as quickly as they did; it must be awfully financially as well).
I'm having a difficult time leaving Toyota. I've been looking at the Subaru Outback as a really versatile and beautiful car, but I'm a bit chicken (I prefer a 5 door, more rugged car to a sedan).
The 2012 Camry is apparently still in production in December, but the 2013's will be starting to be produced alongside the 2012's at the same time in December. If I go for one, it will be the Hybrid XLE. In California they offer a 150,000 mile warranty on the battery (80,000 in the rest of the country), and that is excellent. The rest of the car is known to be reliable, so with any worries about batteries eliminated, I'm very tempted to go for the great gas mileage. I rented a Hybrid XLE for a road trip (from Toyota) and it was a great car to drive (even though I personally like a a manual shift car with torque and sport suspension). It is a big step for me to move to an automatic, but I was not at all unhappy with that car.

Just picked up a Silver 2012 Camry XLE v4 in Elk Grove, CA for $26,700 + fees. There is a $1000 rebate if you pay all cash instead of using Toyota 0% financing for those who can afford it.
Car has just about everything: Nav, Backup camera, Bluetooth, Smart key system, Homelink, leather, heated front seats, and entune system.
I like the look for the Camry. I've been a Honda buyer but this new style is very nice.
Seem like a reasonable deal for me. For those interested, I got a quote for the following as well.
2012 Camry LE Silver V4 = $21,600 + fee
2012 Camry LE Red or White V4 = $19,900 + fee
2012 Camry XLE Silver V6 = $31,700 + fee

This is just a pet peeve of mine, but there is no such thing as a "V4". The 4 cylinder engine is an "I4", as in "in-line 4 cylinder." The 6 cylinder engine is a V6, because of the shape of the cylinders - there are 3 on one side, 3 on the other, and they are mounted in a "V" shape, with the bottom of the V the crankshaft. So you have an "I4".
Great car, great choice!!

I purchased from Elgin Toyota in Illinois. I'm not sure if it will help you as you are from Dallas. If you don't need a car right away wait for a good deal and I'm sure you will get it because dealers will definitely reduce the price towards the end of the year.
#9770 of 10204 2012 SE Bay area
Dec 11, 2012 (10:56 am)
Frist of all, thanks to all that shared their buying price and experiece. The forum has privided invaluable information for the car buyer.
Here is my story.
I just bought a 2012 SE with Power seat (PD) and floor mats (haven't see any one without it even though it added $225 to the total price, which I think is ridiculous) last night.
I opt for the 0% APR for 60%, so couldn't get the $1,000 rebate. Sale price is $21,377 + TTL.
Looks like bendakaya did better than me by $233, but the dealership is local, and I feel the price is reasonable enough.
I obtained quotes from a dozen of Toyota dealers in the south bay area plus Toyota at Elk Grove in Sac area. The best quote I got from bay area is $21,588, and used that to push down the one with the right color to $21,488. Then Toyota of Elk grove came with the lowest price of $21,288. I showed that to Piercey Toyota, and split the difference with them.
Overall, I feel the internet and flee department is much easier and efficient to deal with once you are settled on the model and color you want. I did give the retail sales person at another dealership a fair shot while we went and test drove, but he won't even budge below the invoice, even after I told him all the dealers are selling these cars about $1,000 under invoice not considering the rebate ($2,000 below if you use the rebate instead of 0% finanace).
Hope this helps.
Happy holiday to everyone.
