I would like to comment on this stuff they sell at the high volume
dealers. Rust proofing consists of spraying the underneath of the truck
with tar. You have at maximum $50 in materials involved. Paint sealant is
just a wax that includes Teflon ($15 a bottle). Interior stain protection,
you got it, Scotch Guard. This costs about $5 a bottle and 1 will do a
couple of trucks. So you just paid $515 for $70 worth of materials. This is
why it is much better to buy at a smaller dealer who won't cheat you on
things like this.

On a similar note, I would like to comment on DOC fees (short for
Documentation). This is a bill for doing the paperwork. They should throw
this in if they are worth a darn. Much like any other form of dealer prep.

I feel I am qualified to say this because we just received The 1997
North American Customer Excellence award from Ford. This is the highest
award of its kind from Ford. It is awarded by ratings from your own
customers. You don't get this by charging DOC fees and selling paint
sealant.

I think anyone who's ever bought a car can appreciate a straight shooter.
If you earned your award in part, by being straight forward and honest, then
congratulations! You deserve it.

The May issue of Truck Trends indicates that Ford is planning on doing
exactly that. This issues also had the shot of the camouflages Ford
Excursion dwarfing a K2500 4x4 Suburban.
