A Destination Charge is the fee which covers the cost to deliver the vehicle from the factory to the dealership and is shown on the vehicle's window sticker or what you might think of as the MSRP Sticker. If you've seen the trucks carrying cars on the highways or freight trains stacked with new vehicles, you are basically witnessing the service your destination fees pay. It's set by the automaker and is typically the same for all models within a particular brand.
How much you will pay for a Destination charge varies greatly from one manufacturer to another. The destination fee is usually in the neighborhood of $400 — $800 per vehicle and no amount of negotiating will make it go away.
Sorry, you’ll have to pay this charge if you want the car, and it is a straight pass-along cost.
However, this is not to say that all charges which appear on the window of the car, truck, or suv you are looking at are legitimate destination fees. Fees are one of the favorite ways dealers have to add hidden charges, so look out for additional stickers (next to the official window sticker) that say things like "pre-delivery inspection," "delivery," "destination," or "dealer prep" charges. You should refuse to pay any of them.
They are all made up fees, and placed strategically on the window of the vehicle to fool the buyer into thinking they are the same as manufacturer destination charges. It’s quite easy to tell the difference. Not only does a manufacturers destination charge show up on the official window sticker, they are also listed on the dealer invoice directly from the factory. The manufacturer nevers sends additional pieces of paper with charges, and they don’t apply additional stickers to the windows for more charges.
Many buyers view the manufacturers destination fee as a reasonable charge, and so should you. After all, the fee which ranges between $400-$800 to get to a dealer would cost you a few thousand dollars if you had a car shipped directly to you from the manufacturer.
