If I was in a better financial position, I'd be very tempted to purchase this 2012 XLE.
It must've been built on a monday, and they left the XLE badge on by accident. Other than leather steering wheel, 17" wheels, and wood trimmings, it's basically an LE with that cloth interior, and base navi unit... and it's beige. Ugh.
It has nothing to do with depreciation of a "Camry". Depreciation in value of any "new" car is horrible. I learned many years ago to never buy a "new" car. Get one 2-5 years old. Let that 'new" car buyer "take the bath".
My wife's 2005 Lexus LS430 had a MSRP when new of $70k. Bought it when 5yo for $25k.
High End cars were always the exception to the rule.
Hell, I was looking at the wholesale prices of the Caddy DTS, BMW 7er, Benz S class, Lexus LS460... The Lexus always comes out on top when compared to the others'.
Even that '05 you have now will be worth 13-16k depending on your region. 11. Years. Later.
Equivalent Euro/other high end barges always take a beating since more expensive means more gizmo's which break and come with stupid costs to them, and the same ones are usually 2/3 of the price of an equivalent Lexus.
