Agree with the lack of interior color choices for SE. I would have preferred the white exterior + beige interior like the hyundai. The XLS does give you more color options. IMHO, the nav + entune is good for toyota. An internet connected car is a step in the right direction. In this case toyota is piggy backing on your existing cell phone data via bluetooth to provide it which has it's obvious pros and cons. The SE did not have the blind side detection (atleast the model I test drove).
Something to consider in warmer weather is the sticking effect of leather when it gets really hot. Leather does look nice, however.
The other cars to consider - ford fusion, hyundai sonata/elantra; nissan altima. They are in similar price ranges. Another thing - there is no financing deal on 2012 camry; there is 0% 60 mos on 2011 camry which is frustrating since I'm looking at 2012.

Checked out the new Camry today and was very disappointed. The front appears smaller and lower that the previous Camry looking like a compact car rather than one of substance. The back, on the other hand, reminded me of the older Chevy Malibu and the inside glove box was paper thin and felt cheap. After waiting months waiting for the new '07 Camry which turned out to be a good decisiion, I decided not to even drive the '12 Camry since I didin't want to waste my time or the salesman's time and could not see myself purchasing such an ugl, cheap looking car. Having previously owned a new Avalon and a new '07 Camry, I'm sure quality of the '12 Camry is OK but looks also count. Honda is looking better and the Hyundai looks are far superior.

To bad you didn't at least take a test drive...just so you could report in here your observations about how it drove. Since you've owned other Toyota products, it would've been an interesting read.

23400 OTD for a SE sounds very good. Assuming that your tax is about 7-8% + $200 registration, the selling price is about $21,600 or 800-900 under invoice.
LE v SE? only you can decide.
BTW, I went to see the 2012 Camry this past weekend, I don't really like it. It looks way too small from the outside.

It is actually larger inside than the 2007-2011, and that generation is pretty big.

Why worry about whether you received a good deal on a car you have signed to buy? If you found out you didn't, what would you do? Nothing. Enjoy your car!

I got a quote for 2012 XLE 4 cylinder, leather, navigation w/entune, convenience package - push button etc etc.. for $28000 OTD. Is this a good deal, or should I still look around for a lower price?

According to Clark Howard, pass on the warranty and bank the money for when a problem does creep up. Toyota's are pretty reliable rides and you shouldn't have too many issues. But if a warranty issue does happen, make sure to get it done before the warranty does run out. Doing that now on my kid's car...the shifter is being replaced due to excess wear and they are painting the outside black b pillar as it's fading. And no, we didn't get her an extended warranty...banking the $.
