One of the more annoying things about buying a new car is that the price quoted is never the final price. There are always add-ons; some are understandable, like the cost of getting it registered, or taxes.
The worst is the so-called destination charge, which can be $700 or so. Sure, it costs money for a car to be delivered to a dealership, but why is that cost not included in the original price? Automobiles are the only product for which you have to pay for transportation costs as an add-on after you've agreed on a purchase price.
It also costs money to deliver a large screen TV to an electronics store, but that cost is built into the advertised price. Ditto for washing machines, dryers, bicycles, and, for that matter, watches.
Yet if you buy a TV, the sales clerk does not say, as you hand him your credit card, "Oh, by the way, it cost a lot of money to lug that big thing all the way from the plant to this store, so we're going to tack on another $250 to the price."
Why do auto dealerships insist on such misleading pricing?
Evidently, because they can get away with it.
