#9837 of 10004 2013 Toyota Camry SE V6
Jan 06, 2013 (12:42 pm)
I am currently in the market for the Camry SE V6 and have received the below pricing for the 2013 model:
$29,947 OTD (including TTL for the state of NC)
The car includes Convenience Package, Leather Package, Moonroof, Blind Spot Monitor, Display Audio w/Navigation and he might also throw in Splash guards, Carpet Floor Mats, Wheel locks and door edge guards.
Edmunds shows the invoice price of this config as $29,440 and I think this is a good deal. Thoughts?

EXCELLENT DEAL! I'm in LI, New York and most of them are offering me 27500 just for SE 4cyl with nav and sunroof alone! You're getting the whole shabang for 2500 or so more. I say go for it.

CarsDirect.com does list the $1000 manufacturer's rebate at the very top, right above "net CardDirect price" ($23,247 is their higher price for the Limited Edition, and this price includes destination charges). I wonder if this could vary by region of the country, but I doubt it - as it is a manufacturer's rebate. They would add tax, license, some small tire fees, and maybe a $50 documentation fee (meaning the dealership). [I'm in California].
The 2013's are now coming around slowly (you can see what cars/colors/options are where from Cars.com), so the 2012's should be sold at a rock bottom price (they also need to make room at some dealerships). That isn't to say that any salesperson won't try to get a high price out of you on a 2012 (they count on people being uninformed - and do try!). Make an offer over the internet to the direct sales/internet sales division (though you'd have to get their email by some means). Basically stay away from regular salespeople (too frustrating). I will avoid talking to them in person and also will not talk to them on the phone, to tell you the truth. Everything is through email for me (if they ask me to call, I ignore it and continue negotiations on email). And, it is not worth even communicating with a dealership who does not have the color and options on the car that you actually want (for the benefit of everyone - as their goal is to "get you" and talk you into something else). It is thus well worth checking out what cars with what options/colors are located exactly where.
At the very end of January is good time, by the way, as the two months after the holidays have historically been a slow time, and they will have their January month end quotas to deal with.
I personally plan to cover a 250 mile area when I make my offers (I'm waiting for one thing, so a few more weeks). I think I will actually go for a 2013 model, as it is always possible to get a good price (once there are enough 2013's delivered and around). The truth is that what matters to me is final price. You can take your Toyota to whatever Toyota dealership you wish for service (I've actually never had mine serviced at close to 200,000 miles on it. I do my own oil changes (easier than waiting for one). I put a starter in myself (right there at the front - quite easy), I put some brake pads on, and I had a clutch done at 142,000 miles (I have a 10 year old SE with leather and XLE wheels, and I specifically wanted a manual transmission - which was still produced in that year - fun factor for me. A clutch will eventually go just like brake pads need to be replaced, as it wears the same way). There isn't much that goes wrong with these cars!!
They need to be reminded that the 2012 is a year old car as far as resale value is concerned (it won't matter to you/us if we keep the car for a good amount of time, but the truth is actual value does drop at the end of the year - and it isn't dependent on whether there are miles on the car).
What is the CarsDirect.com price that you are showing in your area? They're worth buying from if you want to get a certain color and certain options (they just get it for you - no hassles). The price is a little higher than the rock bottom you could be paying, but sometimes searching and haggling can seem like a lot of work.
#9840 of 10004 Camry SE Limited edition
Jan 07, 2013 (1:44 pm)
Received a bottom line quote for 2012 Camry Se Limited edition (Sport Package: 18" wheels+Navigation+ Moon Roof etc,.) for $23,705 (before taxes, etc,.) include 0% financing.
I know today (1/7) is the last day for current prices as tomorrow the prices and the new specials for the new models are coming out.
So my question is relevant for today: Am I getting a good deal?
I just do not want to wait for tomorrow to find out that the 0% financing is no longer available.
So.... deal or no deal?

Was looking at Camry SE, but not the limited edition.
My best offer was 21,400 after 1k rebate but before tax and lic. for the 2012 SE with power seats and navigation.
If the limited edition SE costs a couple of thousand more than the 'regular' SE then it sounds like it is ballpark. Personally I am still looking for a better price.

My price is $23,705 with 0% financing.
I can chose to take the rebate of $1000 and then the price will be $22,705 but the financing will be 2.99% which will end of costing me more.
You chose to take the rebate, and therefore your price is $21,400. If you take the 0% financing then your price will be $22,400
Now we can compare our offers:
With $1000 Rebate
Me: SE Special Edition (Sport): $22,705
You: SE with power seat: $21,400
So for only $1,305 more, I am getting :
18-in alloy wheels with P225/45R18 tires
Display Audio with Navigation and Entune
Power tilt/slide moonroof
8-way power-adjustable driverís seat with power lumbar support
I really think that my deal is very different and better than yours. However, I would still want to know if that is a great deal overall, or should I wait one more day and risk losing the 0% financing/rebate offer.
#9843 of 10004 Buying out of state
Jan 08, 2013 (9:48 am)
Can anyone please tell me the disadvantages of buying the new 2013 Toyota Camry from out of state (actually 150 miles away from my home)? Will I be losing out on any service in future by not going with the local dealership?
I am getting a great deal if I buy the car from 150 miles away but wanted to know the pros and cons of buying it from so far.
Any guidance will be really appreciated!

Nope, you will be fine. I have done that twice, with no problems. Some will tell you that the dealership will not assist you as much if you have to go for warranty work, etc.
Any dealer can and will do warranty and/or service work, no matter where you bought it. Besides, how do they know you did not just move???
I would be surprised though that you can't get the same price closer.
The reason I had to go far away is Toyota did not sell base models of the cars I wanted in my region, so I had to go to a different region that gets those versions. Otherwise, I'd have purchased close to home. Keep in mind the distance and time you will have to spend to go that 150 miles.

Thanks for your response! I have tried with all the dealerships that are near my home and no one can even come close to the price I have got from 150 miles away.
Dealers are close to me are all big chains and wont come down on the price as much as i would like them too.
The dealer that I am dealing with 150 miles away is a Toyota dealer in a small town 150 miles away and is willing to offer me a great deal. Maybe because they dont do as much business as the dealers close to me do. Thats my only guess.
I just wanted to know of any pros and cons.
