What do I have to do to get stubborn dealership to waive buyer processing fees?


Asked by Dec 30, 2013 at 10:02 PM about the 2010 Hyundai Sonata GLS

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I need some car buying advice. I'm paying cash for my purchase and I don't think I should be required to pay a processing fee to a dealer, because that is pure addon profit for them and a junk fee for me the customer. They are not pulling a credit report and I can deal with my own paperwork for titling & registration at DMV. Problem is that dealers are extremely STUBBORN and greedy when I bring this issue up and they refuse to drop the fee. How can I persuade them to ditch that fee as an exception in my case as a quick cash customer. I get very angry and am losing out on almost every single car I'm interested, because neither I or the dealer will budge off our positions. Please help advise me on how I can get those darn dealers to bend!

Sounds like you need to visit another dealership with the same car your interested in. Tell them the price you were quoted and see if they will beat it.

Yes, and remind the salesperson they're losing out on a sale and commission because you WILL go somewhere else. Remind them also they're not the only dealer in town! HTH. -Jim
