I have been shopping around for a new car and got a few quotes on a 2017 Camry SE (the sporty model). I received a quote via voicemail for $9000 off of MSRP. I go to the website of the local dealer that left me the voicemail to see the MSRP price and see the deal scrolling across the banner. The deal is good through end of the month. There is also 0% 72 month financing if you qualify, but this deal is about the price of the car.
If using a mobile device scroll down until you see "Schedule Your Next Service Appointment" to see the scrolling banner showing the deal.

There are additional rebates that may apply for recent college grads ($750) and military ($500). The military discount includes household members of qualifying military.

-Final cost comes out to $16878 before taxes and fees which is $8939 below the $25817 MSRP.
- If using the Grad Rebate, the price should come out to $16125 or $9692 below MSRP.
- For military personnel, the price should come out to about $16378 or $9439 below MSRP.
-If you are lucky enough to qualify for both grad and military, $15628 or $10189 below MSRP.

For reference from TrueCar:
Great Price: Less than $21049
Exceptional Price: Less than $19212
TrueCar Average: $20508

Here is what I suggest:

Use the website to get your local dealer to agree to the price. This is a great price, I wouldn't haggle beyond this. Do not mention the Grad Rebate or Military discount. After agreeing to the $16878 ask for the Grad Rebate and/or the Military Discount if you qualify for either. Dealers will try to jerk you around. It's best to do all negotiating via email and see if you can pit two dealers against each other.

In my opinion this is a great price without the grad or military discount. Let us know if this works out for you.

I really doubt anyone will get one at that price.

When I read the fine print, it says that price is for a used 2016.

Funny how you copy and paste from another site. Also funny how it got so much love on the other site and none here.

That's a strange looking Camry.

12 reds, 0 greens (up till now). Looks like we have an entry for the worst deal of the day.

I am not in the market for a car but I appreciate the post.

Wish is was the LE the SE is jerky and the seats are bla...

USED not new, ever important detail

Has anyone actually been to the site? There is a nice banner with the deal on the homepage. Now that being said, it is still a car dealership and YMMV.

That price is for a used car NOT new as stated in your post. Waste of time clicking on this nonsense

On the other hand, this Nigerian prince is also offering 10 million for anyone who's willing to share a US checking account.
