Tips from Toyota Camry Buyers

Kinsel
Beaumont, TX
I had visited 3 dealerships in person and 1 by phone. So I had a good idea about what was the typical area price. I bought toward the end of Toyota's National Clearance sale on 2013 models so the dealer seemed to be relatively motivated.

Pros: Buying toward the end of the clearance sell seemed to keep them motivated. I dealt with two salesmen. Both were relatively low pressure in their sales tactics.

Cons: None, really. I think they wanted to sell an older model car and I wanted to buy one at a good price.

World Toyota
Atlanta, GA
The overall experience is very good. I went to buy 2009 Camry LE for $19,500 (including Tax, Title, Document fees). But I didn't like the very low end wheels to the LE. Then I asked for Alloy Wheels for LE and they said it will cost $1350. Then I asked the sales person to find a car with Alloy Wheels in LE. He couldn't find any in LE trim. Then we looked at the SE with Alloy Wheels and I really liked it. Finally we came to the final price of $21,000 for SE. The SE has Toyota branded Alloy Wheels (which looks really great), Rear Spoiler, Fog Lights, Leather Trim steering wheel and gear rod. The seats are lot better than LE seats.

Pros: The customer service is best. I called the fleet manager and have decided on the LE price before I go to the dealer. They agreed to the price they promised in the phone.

Cons: Before buying the SE, the sales manager tried to get a few hundred dollars more from me. But I stick to my price and I told him the I am going to buy LE for $19.5K if he is not going to offer SE for $21K. So in over all I paid $1500 more for SE and I am very satisfied.

Purchased 2009 Toyota Camry SE V6 6-Spd AT on Nov 22, 2008

Mossy Toyota
San Diego, CA
I already had the quote in an email before I went to the dealership. They didn't haggle at all and the salesperson was decent. The finance department tried to push add-ons like extended warranty, paint protection, fabric protection, alarm and some security feature for a whopping $6000. I declined all of them and obviously the finance manager was not quite happy but he did behave decently.

Pros: Not much sales pressure but it might be just that I went in at the right time on a Sunday. There were not many sales people hanging around either. All in all they had only 3 to 4 customers in the whole showroom, so things were moving slow for them, and that might have helped me get this deal.

Cons: You always need to watch out for things that need to be fixed before you sign the papers at the finance department. There was a missing battery terminal cap which the salesperson said would be taken care of but once I signed the purchase contract, they declined to fix that saying that they had already lost $1400 on the deal that they weren't going to fix that. Not a big deal for me but I was surprised that the sales lady would be so brutally honest. I told her in the face that I expected that such a thing might happen. My advice: read Edmunds.com and http://www.carbuyingtips.com/, and get dealers to compete against each other and get a final OTD faxed or emailed to you before stepping into dealership. You will get ripped off if you didn't get the quote beforehand.

Rice Toyota
Greensboro, NC
Long Story,Toyota dealer titled car in his daughters name ( now becomes used car not elegiable for rebates or low financing). She then changed mind on what she wanted.She never took car from dealership lot. Car has 260 miles on it from doing a dealer swap to get this one from another dealers inventory for the daughter. Window sticker still on car window. Now with this car being used with 260 miles, it has been toyota certified by dealer which gives it a extended powertrain warranty of 7 years or 100,000 miles. The standard powertrain warranty is 5 years or 60,000 miles. I am getting 2 more years or 40,000 more miles of warranty from Toyota. Paid cash for car, needed no special financing. If I can't pay for it I do not need it.

Pros: options: (aw aluminum wheels) (sr pwr tilt / slide moonroof w/sunshade)(pv4 carpet mats) (7 years or 100,000 mile powertrain warranty) $19,010 out the door turn key price paid for car

Cons: Always remember all new cars are used when we drive them off dealership lots !!!!

Jerry Durant Toyota
Granbury, TX
The whole process lasted about 2 hours. I was pretty satisfied with the process overall, however, the finance dept. had me wait for quite a while just to approve a loan. It took about 45 minutes which shouldn't be the case. They were able to find a $500 Toyota Loyalty rebate because my family had previously loaned through them before. The interest rate was 5.75 compared with 5.27 at Capital One. I might be able to refinance at a lower rate. Overall, the process was a bit too long and could have been considerably shorter. My dad and I did go on a weekday and is less busy so that might explain their leisure attitude.

Pros: Carl, the internet manager, was able to give me the best price compared to the 18 other dealerships in the dfw metroplex on the first try. He was pretty straightforward compared to everyone else. They did not try to sell me upgrades or add ons too hard and backed off when I told them I was not interested.

Cons: The wait was definitely a turn off. They had me wait for 45 mins and did not talk to me until the whole waiting became too annoying. I told them if they could not get the loan then I just use the financing I had.

Pros: No hassling in person, no arguments. They honored the price they sent via e-mail.

Cons: I had to be firm when asking them to give me a price instead of telling me what my other offers were, but once they found out I had so many other bids they were ready to beat them.

Longo Toyota
El Monte, CA
My first purchase experience from Longo Toyota, which was a 2009 Corolla, was a good experience, but my second purchase experience, which is a 2009 Camry, was goddamn awful and I will never buy another vehicle from them ever again. I paid $18,600 for my stinky 2009 Camry LE, which is way overpriced, because many other local Toyota dealers in southern California are now selling them for less than $17,000. The salesman was rude and pushy, and gave me a sucky price at the end. The salesman really has a bad attitude on trying to charge me more because the vehicle is Made in Japan. We did not even finish negotiating the price yet because the dealer asked me to return back the next day, and I did not even had the chance to negotiate on lowering the interest rate. The salesman walked away from me and forgot about me.

Pros: World's largest Toyota dealer, plenty of space to walk around, in-stock inventory, one of very few car dealers that do not pressure buyers to buy extended warranty.

Cons: Many... Salesmen are very inexperienced, do not price-match with other local Toyota dealers, lied to me I got a great deal, unethically charged me $1,000 more because the vehicle is Made in Japan, I illegally used the college grad rebate the second time to bring down the already awful final price, did not allow me to negotiate the final price nor negotiate on lowering the interest rate.

Joe Machens
Columbia, MO
The dealer had a decent selection of cars and the staff was very friendly. When I went to buy the car, they offered it for so much money and a pretty decent interest rate. When I went to sign the contract, there was a completely different price and a higher interest rate than what I had been told. Of course it was verbal, so I couldn't do anything about it other than not buy the car, but who wants to waste all that time...

Pros: Very friendly and knowledgeable staff

Cons: The verbal prices and interest rate did not matche the contract prices and interest rate.
