Are you confusing destination fee and "dealership processing fee?" The exact destination fee is not specified on the web site, but I think $500 is the standard USA amount. Dealerships are usually fairly standard for a given geographical area. Dealerships are often found in clusters, and you can walk from one to another and check, they are usually pretty close. In my area, $100 is the standard. It's hard to believe it is five times that amount in the booming Midwest metropolis of Columbus.It was $500 in Columbus, OH as well.
That's what I paid in South Atlanta. The nearby Fiat dealers had the same fees, even the Toyota dealer selling some Primas (don't ask me why a Toyota dealer had three new Primas for sale). Up in PA area it was about the same fees in all dealers (I think $579!!). Usually the bigger cities have the higher fees."When you order a car."
Some studios have cars on the lot. Ordering cars isn't the only way.
Any word on variances in dealer fees? South Atlanta wants $500.00.
