Price of any item is a fundamental to any purchase, especially when the costs run into thousands of dollars, as they are for most cars. Unlike most retail sales, auto prices are negotiated, so it’s important to understand just what you’re paying for including any hidden fees, dealer fees or car fees.
Farmer Jaffe Weissing has launched an investigation into the dealer preparation or pre-delivery service fees car dealers often tag onto purchases of cars sold to consumers. Florida law specifically requires that any advertised prices include the amounts of these fees, and if a dealer includes a line item for pre-delivery service charges in its paperwork, it must state that: “This charge represents costs and profit to the dealer for items such as inspecting, cleaning, and adjusting vehicles, and preparing documents related to the sale.”
