Is the Camry XLE worth the extra $3,000 compare to the LE?

Is the Accord EX worth the extra $3,000 compare to the LX?

For the Camry I'd rather have the SE, but that's just my opinion.

Quite often a person buys a car and looks for value with options . As time goes by with the vehicle it's often those options which he chose NOT to buy that he wishes he did .

No.

Big wheels look better = more expensive tires.
Moon roof, would like but not worth $3,000
lane keep assist, don't care about. Botts' dots have been on the road since the '50s. Why pay for something that's already there?

As far as the Accord goes, I would say no, because for 2013, satellite radio and back up camera are now standard even on the base LX Accord models. I don't think a sunroof and the upgraded wheels on the EX are worth $3000 more.

I think I'd get a Hyundai or Kia and get all the up level options while saving even more money.

Or the new Mazda 6 - much better interior than the Camry.

Or buy a luxury car where these "extras" are standard.

you gotta pay to play.

Trust me, that's how the world rolls.

a li'l bit of time at honda website shows that for extra $3000 you get

17-Inch Alloy Wheels
One-Touch Power Moonroof with Tilt Feature
Smart Entry System
Honda LaneWatch™[7]
Push Button Start

If you were to retrofit these features, you'd be far more than $3000 and also not be OEM

I think the extra for the Camry Hybrid XLE is worth it. You get more extras with Hybrid XLE versus non-hybrid XLE.

Some that I can think of are:
-alloys and larger tires
-dual AC
-tire pressure monitor on screen says the exact tire pressure number of each tire.
-push button start
-no need to use the remote to lock/unlock doors/trunk. Just keep the remote in your pocket and touch the door handle and it automatically unlocks. This is an awesome feature.
