If you read his deal CLOSELY, you will see the dealer is charging him $25 for a one-way pass to register the vehicle out of state (to Nevada). So, it is $239 + $25(fee) = $264 due at signing.
At any rate, that is a great deal, Antonius. Nice job working that deal! Enjoy the new Camry SE.......it is a very nice ride.
Sorry the dealer I worked with couldn't get you another SE + Smart Key. I am really enjoying my new Camry SE with that Smart Key......it is pretty cool. My previous 2008 Acura TL Type-S ($39,000) didn't even have keyless start/entry!
When I called the dealers in SO Cal.......none would deal/talk to me, since I live in Nevada. So, I did my best here......and I am very, very happy with my deal.

At this point, it doesn't really matter.......since you signed the deal and took the car. If you are happy with the car and that payment, then you did good. Enjoy it!
In LEASE calculations, you need to provide way more info than just the monthly payment and interest charge. There would be no way to answer that question with what you provided.

thanks for clarifying the $264 that Antonius said he paid on signing.
I'm wondering if that was a cap reduction or was applied to his first month due and if the dealer kept the 35 payments structure intact or reverted to 36 payments of $329/month.
I am lined up for a very similar car/deal now and am expecting to close it tomorrow, but you never know how these dealers try to wrangle around at the last second.
I'll post once and IF I get the deal I discussed on my phone call today with the Redlands Toyota rep.

Ok, sorry if I asking some dumb questions, but I haven't really considered leasing before, and this deal seems too good to be true. Dealer (Fitz) advertising 4cyl Camry for 109 per month with 2500 down. Have a 2007 Sonata SE 6 cyl with 55k. Have not talked to the dealer yet, but how does that work with a trade? Is this deal too good to pass up? We drive about 12k a year, so that shouldn't be an issue. Thanks for any advice.

Let me try and clarify any questions. I picked up my car yesterday from Toyota of Redlands. I have bought a lot of cars, but I can say this was honestly the best and easiest experience I have ever had. I dealt with a guy in the internet/fleet dept, who I can provide his name to anyone who wants.
MSRP- 26169 (moonroof, JBL 6 disc changer/mp3/satellite/bluetooth, floor mats, bumper applique, sport pkg with homelink/auto dimming mirror)
Cap cost- 22748 for the car
Doc fee- 55
Acq fee- 650
Net cap cost- 23453 (NO cap reduction/down payment)
First payment- 288 (237 1st mo+ 25 for a one way permit to NV + misc CA fees like tire disposal).
Plus 2 yr maintenance of course also. Almost had 4/55k maintenance because the finance guy typed it in as 4/55 and then saw it and fixed it, which I had not even noticed it.
Feel free to plug those into any lease calculator and you should get the same payment.
Easy as pie. I called the dealer in LV and told them the deal I was offered and they told me flat out to go to CA. The dealership in Redlands was great. I didn't get any add on sales pitches, no spray on paint protector, no lojack, nothing. Finance guy asked if I wanted GAP, offered it a couple of times, and that was it. No mistakes on the contract, nothing for me to change or correct. Great experience.

I'm heading out now to Redlands but I got a newbie.
I believe they'll match your deal for me but I need to know now if your first payment was a cap reduction or applied to your first month due.
Also if you pay 36 months or get 35 out of 36 w/Toyota paying 1 month as the current offer is.
Please LMK as I'm heading out.
Sep 18, 2010 (9:02 am)
First payment was first payment. I paid the 288 as first months NOT cap reduction. It was as I said 237 + 25 one way permit + misc fees for 288. If you register in CA you will pay the registration up front INSTEAD of the 25, so drive off will be higher. I have 35 more payments at 237 now starting on 10/17.

If you want to give me an email I can send you the name of the guy who I bought from.
Sep 18, 2010 (9:10 am)
Here's the key : Does your $237 include the tax due or is that w/out tax.
I'd contact you but your email is private and we're not allowed to post email addresses?
