Car Retailer Destination Fees


Migliaccio & Rathod is currently investigating car retailers such as FCA, GM, Toyota, Ford, Honda and Hyundai for artificially inflating their destination fees. A destination fee is supposed to cover the cost of delivering a vehicle to the dealership from the port or factory. However, in actuality these fees allow retailers to charge consumers thousands of dollars without ever disclosing the actual cost of transporting the vehicle, in violation of federal law. What’s more, these brands obfuscate the actual services the destination fees cover and how they are calculated. Despite these deceptive practices, car retailers have the audacity to continue to increase their destination fees. Recent data has revealed that Honda’s destination fees, for example, have increased more than 2.5 times the rate of inflation over the past ten years. M&R seeks to hold car companies responsible for using deceptive pricing practices to squeeze more money from consumers.
