2021 VW ID.4 1st, Dusk Blue
I’m about a week from taking delivery of my ID.4. I’ve been asking my dealer for a while about markups and fees and he assured me there were none of either. Today I found out they do have a dealer fee and he said it is mandatory. They use it to pay all the people involved in the prep and as part of the salesman’s commission. He also knew the amount other dealers in the area charge and quoted those to me. I was not expecting to have to pay this additional $800. Are any of you also getting charged a separate “dealers fee”? To me this is just additional profit, since they also get profit on the car and that is used to pay everyone. My first thought was to move my order to another dealer but now that I know they all charge it that won’t work. Is this prevalent? I haven’t bought a new car in 6 years so I feel out of the loop. Thanks in advance!
