Then you got the van for $440 under MSRP, plus shipping. Net out the door: MSRP.
Trust me, the unions got their $440.
I'm getting $500 off MSRP, plus shipping. Net out the door: $60 less than MSRP.
You were charged, but the skanky dealer just shuffled the numbers around. EVERYONE gets charged the union transportation fee one way or another.
As for your $150 for "title and docs", that's steep for around here. You certainly could have chopped that down, without question. What was that you said about "no other add-on fees"?
Car salesmen love to see people like you coming, because they can work the psychology so easily. You're happy because, despite the $150 of add-on fees, you honestly think you didn't pay any add-on fees.
Now, I could be entirely wrong; perhaps your state law is written such that everyone in your state pays the $150 for "title and docs".
But trust me, the union contract is written such that the trucker's union gets $440 for each and every vehicle delivered. Period. They don't care where it comes from, it gets PAID.
(Did you ever wonder why it's a flat $440 transportation charge regardless of distance, no matter whether you're shipping to Seattle or to Miami? Because that's the contract the union negotiated, that's why. Other cars have different numbers but the exact same situation with regard to the union.)
