Thank you nyccarguy. I went to Carmax they were offering 18500. One dealer even went as low as 17 something. I'm not buying another vehicle. Just selling mine outright. I feel they should at least honor what the car valuation sites are saying. I took the average of KBB, NADA etc and came up with an average of 20,591. I was retailing it for 23,900. I know they have to "recondition" the car etc but 18500 is ridiculous for them to wash the car maybe do whatever inspection. Its not an SE or LE. It's an XLE with low miles and absolutely nothing wrong with it.

Keep in mind that the auction value of the car is really the price. You'll NEVER get "full KBB retail" for it. Even if the car "glows in the dark," the dealer has to mark it up & make a profit. Besides your 2 year old, used, XLE, they've also got brand new 2012 & 2013 LEs & SEs to sell on their lot. So they have to price your car accordingly.
Also the fact that you are not buying a car from the dealer "hurts you." If you were buying a car from them, they could give you the same money as car max, and a great price on the new car just so they could "punch a sale."
Check autotrader and see how many 2011 XLEs are for sale within 100 miles of your zip code. You won't be able to sell it for more than a dealer can, but it might be worth your time to sell it privately.
If car max offered $18,500 for it, then maybe you could get another $500 out of a private seller or if you were trading in.

Well if I find someone who wants to buy it for 20 or 21 I will sell. I'm not going to give it to the dealer for 18500 though.
Thanks for the info.
#9891 of 10203 2010 Camry - had an accident -Structural repair
Feb 19, 2013 (3:09 pm)
I had an accident and someone rear ended me hard . The car had to be towed and the body shop estimate has a line item that says "Structural realignment - repair pull front and rear" .
What does that mean ? Does it mean it is structurally damaged and the car loses its value.
Would it be safe to drive.?
I appreciate all the advice in advance.
#9892 of 10203 2012 Toyota Camry LE
Feb 19, 2013 (3:10 pm)
I got a 2012 Camry LE + mats + power seats last week for $22075.00 OTD (includes tax, title, tag, registration, full tank of gas) in S.FL. I think it's a reasonable price since the dealers were running out of the 2012 models in the color I wanted (metallic gray).
#9893 of 10203 First time buyer
Feb 20, 2013 (9:39 pm)
this is my first post and first time car buyer. So i did some research online and able to negotiate the price with some dealers for a 2013 toyota camry se 4cyl for $22500. To my understanding this is just a standard model. After reading around the forum and did some more research on my own, I want to further negotiate the price down to 21800 or even as low as the invoice price. Does anybody have any recommendation on how to deal with sale person and negotiation advices? I will go to the dealer this weekend (in CA), and I know they will try to devour me alive out there since I'm a first time buyer, but I will be strong out there (I promise).
Again, any advices are greatly appreciate since I rather get blast here than to get rip off at the dealer. I want to be prepare
