Nearly every new car dealer advertises a car price, then when you negotiate the best deal for yourself, and are ready to sign the papers, on goes a doc fee for nearly $400. This doc fee is pure profit for the owners, General managers,etc. Before you start negotiating, find out if they have a doc fee and if the will negotiate it. If not, turn around and RUN.

Why can't they figure it into the price, instead of adding a fee?

400 bucks for a bit of paperwork...

these "dealers" are always the big dealers! like friendship & the gatton dealers! they give you a price then they drop the $499.00 fee when you go to write a check! if they added it to the price we would all know they are jacking up prices & we wouldn't even waste out time!! go to the little dealers & see if they do it! I bet they don't!

They don't have 'documentary' fees, they are document fees, ignoramus. I agree they shouldn't add those. Plus watch out for the "AMV' fees on the stickers. AMV= added market value. Pure profit for the dealers. I tried to buy a car a Wallace Nissan, and they didn't want to tell me what this fee was, even tho I already knew what it was. I just wanted to see how honest they were. FAIL!! I told them to keep it and went to another dealer.

A dealer and i wont say who ( new car dealer ) was asking 6995 for the car my daughter wanted. I negotiated the price down to 6200. I went in the business office to write the check and when he gave me the invoise for the purchase there was a $799.00 doc fee on top of the $6200 i had agreed to pay. I was shocked and requested that fee be taken off. I wad told everyone had to pay the fee. Even of the car was sold for $1 dollar. I told em to stick there fee where the sun dont shine. Then i went to a local used car lot and the sold me the same car for 5500 im tellin you watch out for new car dealers tricks. Dont fall for it. Support small car lots.

Yes they would. You do realize that there is other paperwork besides loan paperwork? How about tags, title, insurance, etc? All of these are part of the paperwork process.
