Should car dealers be charging car buyer for etching even though the consumer did not request it?

Asked by May 01, 2013 at 09:57 AM about the Honda Accord Coupe

Question type: Car Customization

Bought a car recently and was charged automatically for etching. I did question such action, but was told that all dealers are doing so now. This is not my first time buying a car and usually have the option of weather or not I want etching.
Should I be charged automatically for etching?

I guess it depends on the individual dealer. There is no law that it's required. It's always good to find out up front what you are paying for. Tell your insurance company you have your windows etched, you can save some cost on your premium. Check out this article.....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VIN_etching

Not all dealers are etching windows. That dealer is making money on every car that is etched.
