Hopefully, by now, all Floridians should be aware of the questionable car dealer practice of adding "dealer fees". If you don’t know about it, it’s a hidden price increase on the car you purchase disguised to look like a federal, state, or local tax or fee. It’s actually 100% profit to the dealer. “Dealer Fee” is the most common name for this disguised profit, but it goes by many names such as doc fee, dealer prep fee, service fee, administrative fee, electronic filing fee, e-filing fee, tag agency fee, pre-delivery fee, etc. The names are only limited by car dealers’ imaginations. Almost all car dealers in Florida charge a Dealer Fee. The dealer fees range from around $700 to as high as $2,000!

Please add your name to this petition and tell the Florida legislature to either outlaw this practice or to impose a cap like many other states do. In California, the dealer fee is capped at $65 - $80.

You may be asked to make a donation to iPetitions.com after you add your name to the petition - this is 100% voluntary and you shouldn't feel the least bit bad if you choose not to donate (I didn't ;))

    Allowing Dealer fees as well as other means of padding dealer profit should be illegal. It IS unethical. The price posted should be the selling price. Financing should only matter after the price of the vehicle is negotitated.

    A fee under $100 is acceptable. Current fees are too high!

    It is time for car dealers to live up to their advertisements and this fee is simply a profit grab.
