#864 of 873 Toyota Camry Lease regrets
Mar 07, 2013 (4:07 pm)
My parents who are well up in their years signed a lease agreement for a 2011 Toyota Camry at the end of the model year. The dealership was advertising "huge discounts" on all 2011 models.
My Dad "fell in love" with the car and started expressing his desire to buy the car before any negotiations started. The salesman must have realized he had a live on on the hook and not only didn't offer them a discount but he worked the numbers so the lease price was about $4,000 higher than the MSRP.
I understand the supreme law: " BUYER BEWARE ". But is it possible that some law was broken whether leasing law or elder law that some action can be taken to lessen the pain?

Would appreciate if anyone can post money factor as well as residual value for 2013 Camry (12k/36).

Hi, I have to hand my leased Camry in. I will plan to lease a new Camry but not interested in buying at the end of the lease. I will just lease again. If that is what I expect to do with reasonable certainty, why should I not only care about the lowest monthly payment? Right now they are saying I can pay below current $303 monthly payment and nothing do at signing. Any advice on why I may be looking at this wrong and certainly do care about residual, money factor, etc, I'd love any advice.
Here are specs on current car I had for 3 years:
Model: Camry 2011, LE
gross capitalized cost: $25800
residual value" $17,800
#867 of 873 New 36 Month Lease on SE V6
Mar 13, 2013 (10:05 pm)
I'm working on turning in my 2011 Camry SE V4 lease 5 months early as I want to get into a more powerful 2013 Camry SE V6.
In Orange County, CA- visited Power Toyota today and was offered the national lease rate of $279/month with zero down, and pay for the additional cost of the more expensive V6 model over the national deal for an SE V4. Dealer pays 1st month of 36 month lease, I pay for T, T & Licensing Fees on drive-off. Dealer assumes the balance of my 5 lease payments so I am done with the existing TFS Lease. The estimate I was given w/out taxes was $345/month.
What's a good deal for structuring the 2013 SE V6? I don't need all the upgrade packages but there's probably only a few anyways so they might have to work with me on my preferred Silver/Black combo. I assume there could be a little more room but can't gauge what a good deal factoring in for the additional monthly charges over the $279/month rate for a v4 should be.

Just a note - there is no such thing as a "v4" engine. It is an I4 (in-line 4 cylinder). Most 6 cylinders in midsize cars are V6 (3 cylinders on each side of the crankshaft in the shape of a V).

I meant 4 cylinders and 6 cylinders, but would prefer real answers to my question vs. pointing out semantics

Just completed my 3 year lease deal at Toyota of Redlands, whom I leased my last car with, a 2011 Camry SE V4.
This time, I got the 2013 Camry SE V6 (Yes, Mr. mcdawgg, even Toyota labels it as "V6"), Silver exterior/leather trim w/black fabric cloth. Just what I wanted.
Fully loaded except for heated seats and lane alert.
Beautiful car, couldn't be happier and the extra power is much appreciated over the V4.
They took back my existing Lease on a trade in with 5 payments left; $299/month plus tax, OTD with first month's and registration fees.
This is the dealer to see if you're in SoCal. PM for details if you want.

No, I agree that the 6 cylinder is a "V6". If you look back, I said there is no "V4". What I was trying to do is correct calling the 4 cylinder a "V4" because it is not. It is an inline 4 cylinder. You can't buy a "V4" engine in a Toyota, or almost any car, as they are almost all "inline" 4 cylinders, or I4, NOT V4.
Just trying to point this out to help. It helps to be as knowledgeable as possible on things, and telling the salesperson you want a "V4" could label you as someone who doesn't know much about cars.
The 6 cylinders have 3 cylinders on one side of the crankshaft, and 3 on the otherside, in a V shape, with the bottom of the V being the crankshaft.
The I4 has 4 cylinders in a row, all right above the crankshaft, not at an angle.
Don't want to offend, just educate.

Toyota Leases in Florida, thru South east Toyota Financing, (SETF), Do they include gap insurance? At one time I was told all leases in Florida had gap, but now I do not know. Please advise, thanks!
