You may have a valid point but one dealer was gracious enough to let me know the real deal. I am only selling not really "trading." I am not buying anything to replace my Toyota. He said there is no jacked up finance charges, jacked up pricing on a new car, and no hold back on my trade. Which is what they are trying to do with the 17500 offer. Cost and value are two different things. They use the cost scenario when they are buying. "we can't give anything more than wholesale minus what we have to pay to prep the car for selling. When you buy the scenario is that they can't discount the car because "it's a Toyota Camry...the number one selling car that holds its VALUE. This whole idea that Nada, KBB, AutoTrAder, et al isn't the real trade in value is ridiculous. Why do these tools exist then? If NADA says I can get 21275 and Edmunds 20627...real numbers...the dealer is try to steal from me at 17500.
Everyone doesnt want a brand new car. Read an article that there is a shortage of quality inventory for 2-3 year old used cars. The ppl on this forum, if they are real buyers, are able to knock down asking on new because the markup already accounts for the haggling. This dealer said he wouldn't buy my car because it was one of those upscale fix your credit lots. He doesn't put more than 7-9k in his vehicles...but yet he has them priced for 14-18. I would venture to say that he probably pays even less than the 7-9k since he was so open with the info. Anyway that's off the point. I'll keep looking until I find someone whose going to pay close to asking.

Have you tried CARMAX? There cars are overpriced but seem to be in better condition. Perhaps their valuation might be higher...

Carmax is where I started. They had a 2011 XLE smoked in with 44k for 229. They offered 185. Thought offers would get better.

You probably mean 21100 plus tax and fees would be around 23000 something. im 100% positive its not OTD no dealership in the world can do that price.

yea, i was going to tustin toyota, but i decided to swing by toyota of orange, got the car otd in less than 4 hours, like i said, with the college grad, my otd was $22800 with a lame ass car alarm install, but the great thing is, the saleman gave me a brand new car, just off the delivery truck, so I can't really complain
