Toyota Camry, Sedan
Jan 17, 2013 (1:26 pm)
Just brought home a 2012 Camry LE (plus power seat and floor mats) lease last night.
36 months, 36,000 miles
$23,994 MSRP, $22,475 sales price, $500 Toyota lease cash, 54.5% residual, 0.00001 money factor (basically nothing). Paid first payment up front plsu tax on the Toyota lease cash.
$264/mo plus tax the rest of the way, which in Indiana means $282/mo
Got Internet quote from a dealer in Indianapolis, then was able to get my local Lafayette dealer to match their price even though the lease terms were way better since Lafayette is considered the Chicago region.

Thanks for the feedback. Where do I get AAA pricing? I am familiar with AAA, and am a member, but have not seen any references to their offering car sales info. Thanks, again.
#9858 of 10203 Toyota Camry-Attn: Tall People
Jan 18, 2013 (5:36 am)
I was in the market for a new car and was seriously considering the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry. I test drove the Camry several times and enjoyed the ride and the features. We never made it to the point to talk price; however, the salesman I had was very nice and not pushy at all - made my experience enjoyable. Ultimately, the car was for my wife. When we went to the dealership so she couild drive it, I got in the passenger seat and did not fit. I am 6'-5" tall and my head hit the ceiling. The drivers seat moved up and down; however, the passenger seat only moves front to back. I only mention this for tall people that may occaionally ride in the passenger seat or for parents with tall kids who might not think to take the kids with them when buying the car.
I will also mention that the foot rest on the Honda Accord sticks out a fair distance and I do have to bend my leg. So, it does appear that from the drivers standpoint, the Camry is more comfortable for taller people; however, I could not be a passenger without laying the seat back.

I am only 6'1" but never found the Accords easy to access.
Never had that problem with the Camry.
I think that there are some of the Camry models that have the power seat option for the passenger seat. No idea what that option would cost or if it would solve your problem.

I wound up with the Accord and my wife loves it. I think the backup camera, which is standard, is one of her favorite features. I did talk to Toyota and they told me that an adjustable passenger seat (up and down - power or manual) was not an option (at least for the 4 cyclinder SE - I was not interested in the XLE or the 6 cylinder). They said I might be able to find an aftermarket solution; however, I did not want to go that route.
I am not trying to sway anyone Honda vs Toyota. I just wanted to report my experience in case my findings helped someone else.

Amen. The prof is right on,Sarah.
I had got quotes from 40 or so dealers from PA/MD/NJ/NY... by far, 355 darcars toyota outperformed them all. When I asked for OTD price, that is what I got. When you saw the price, you did not have to haggle anymore, since you have already seen what 40 other dealers are able to provide. Many admitted they can't come close.
So I would second the prof's reco. Get a e-price from 355. You will like it. Then see if 355 has online coupons, add it on, and then give them a visit. I think it will be quick and happy ending for you.
Let us know any questions.
We wish you a satisfactory purchase at the most reasonable cost!
God bless & Keep!

Am thinking of going for one of the zero down lease that toyota is offering. I live in Massachusetts and was wondering if someone can share any info about good lease deals and dealerships.
#9863 of 10203 2012 CAMRY LE PD MATS $19,488 PLUS FEES
Jan 28, 2013 (6:06 pm)
I finally found the price and better yet the dealer
to sell me the 2012 Camry LE with driver power seats,
floor and trunk mats.
Purchase price $19,488 plus fees PD MATS
No other rebates
0% interest rate and 100% financing
Manhattan Beach Toyota in CA published an
advertisement in the Los Angeles Times. It was interesting
because I believe it was only distributed in the south bay area
of Los Angeles. Although all areas in So. CA. are published in
the online version.
The $1000.00 cash rebate for 2012 Camrys at NO. CA. dealers almost made it
worthwhile to buy it at Elk Grove Toyota for $19,360 after rebate but before fees. I could not take the time to make the trip. Ask for Jeremy or John in fleet, they are brothers.
The first choice was the new 2013 Honda Accord LX. But the driver footrest made it uncomfortable and difficult to drive because of my height 6'0".
The camry has everything I need and according to the dealers their are no changes for the 2013 models.
Please dont buy extended warranties, gap insurance, or alarm systems from the dealers. These are all overpriced and available aftermarket for a fraction of what they quote.
Thank you everyone for all the information I have learned. $19,488 for
this car provides almost everything the average driver needs.

Hi. Not sure how close you are to NH. I'm buying, not leasing. But, after talking to a lot of dealers in my area, I had the best experience with Toyota of Nashua. Bruno easily answered all of my questions and was the best, and most up front, about price negotiations.
