Gawrsh, thanks! I simply googled up for information.. and I recently discovered it's now $80 here in California... this website seems more updated than the other one I used.

https://www.autocheatsheet.com/new-c...d-you-pay.html

So it's either the sales tax here in California or the document processing fee in other states. Out of the frying pan into the fire, so to speak.

I won't be leaving here even though I'm now driving a Chevy. I only bought it because of the $10k off like I did with the Ford and I'm really looking forward to the 2020 refresh if it happens... then I'll be able to scratch off the 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and add in a Ford on top of my signature line.

Wow! I thought those ridiculous "Dealer Pacs" died years ago. The infamous Fabric Protectant and carpet Dirt Shield. Surprised he didn't try to charge you for undercoating!

Pure profit. Pure Rip-Off. Nothing more. I wouldn't buy ANYTHING from a dealership that was trying that scam. Tells you quite a bit about their present and future business practices.

When I ordered my truck, I made it clear to the dealership, not to put any of that stuff on when it arrived. I bought from a small dealership this time, and they were great to work with.

When I go in to buy a truck or car I have a figure that I'm willing to pay for the vehicle and I ignore any dealer add-ons. If they're willing to sell for my figure including whatever they added I buy, otherwise I walk away.

That cheat sheet has allot of inaccuracies on it. I would not go by it. Do a search for the information either directly to the state DMV or other source

That reminds me of the scene in the movie "Fargo" where William H Macys character is pushing some kind of true coat protection on all the cars he sells

I do know DMV fees are higher in a lot of states, especially low tax states. Do not confuse it with sales tax, that's just the DMV fees. It's pretty low here and California definitely caps documentation fees. I've lived in Nevada and I know it's outrageously high there. By looking at a few states, it's quite accurate.

Docs fees average $300 here, but I've bought two vehicles recently at a dealer which charges $500. I just add the doc fee (and any others) to the price of the vehicle - on paper, in front of the sales person - and compare prices. When the total price even with the higher doc fee is lower, that's where I buy.
