Understanding Mandatory Fees And Dealer Fees

Buying a new car can be stressful, especially if you haven’t done it in over five years Autel MaxiDiag MD808. There’s the issue of choosing a colour, make, extra features (if you want them), and of course the messy business of negotiating a price. If you don’t do the research before heading to the dealership, you could fall into a trap many buyers before you have succumbed to and leave the dealership with much more than you bargained for, and not in a good way.

Before you even start talking to a salesperson, arm yourself with enough knowledge about the car to reduce the likelihood of you getting taken for a ride (no pun intended). The first thing you need to do is the research on the car cost. Canada dealers get their units at wholesale prices. You can find out more about this via invoice price reports. Companies like Car Cost Canada offer invoice price reports at $39.95 while Unhaggle.com lets you access it for free. Once you get the factory price of the car, factor in what the dealer needs to make in profit and you can start benchmarking your price for negotiation.

Next, it is also important to understand which fees are mandatory and which fees are optional dealer fees that can be negotiated out of your purchase. The more information you have, the better your chances are of getting a reasonable price, and one that you can be happy with.

Here’s a quick rundown of the mandatory fees you’ll need to pay when purchasing a car according to the Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry:

1. HST or Harmonized Sales Tax – 13% on car price

2. Air tax – Air conditioner excise tax of $100 for cars with air-conditioning

3. OTS tax or Ontario Tire Stewardship fee – For passenger vehicles and light trucks the fee is $5.84 per tire

4. OMVIC fee – A transaction fee to support OMVIC’s (Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council) dispute resolution activities

5. PPSA fee – If you finance/lease a car, the bank/leasing company will charge a fee for setting up the loan and registering the lien $50 to $75.

6. Licensing – Most dealerships will take care of this for you and will charge an admin fee of $50 to $75.

If it’s not listed above, consider it a dealer fee. An important thing to remember is that mandatory fees should not be added to the car’s price after you’ve negotiated it, it must already be included. The same goes for advertisements that include the price of a car – whatever is advertised should be the all-in price.

Don’t be pressured into buying additional products or features you don’t believe have value Autel Diaglink. If you’re being made to believe that a certain add-on is compulsory because it’s already been installed, you have the right to report them to the OMVIC for deliberately misleading you.

Dealer fees and add-ons like security packages which include a police traceable code in case of theft could already be part of your insurance coverage so make sure you do the due diligence and read your contracts before signing them.

A great way to avoid paying for more than the car is worth is to do extensive research online and see what other people are paying for the same car. Find out also if there are any on-going Canadian dealer incentives that you could take advantage of.

Toyota’s Camry is a Leader in the Midsize Sedan Market

The midsize sedan market is one of the most competitive segments in the automotive industry with many auto makers vying for the top position. One of the dominating players in this field is Toyota’s Camry which has developed a solid reputation with buyers for its value and dependability. If you like to be flashy, stand out and receive a lot of attention on the road then this is definitely not the car for you. However, if you are looking for a reliable car at an affordable cost then you might want to take a further look at the Camry.

This midsize car offers a smooth and comfortable ride quality which is perfect for commuting and long trips. Direct competitors in this market include the Fusion from Ford, the hyped up Sonata from Hyundai, the Chevy Malibu and Honda Accord. Four trim levels are available for the 2011 model; base, LE, SE and XLE. When it comes to the exterior design, the Camry plays on the safe side. It’s easy on the eyes but it’s not bold or eye catching by any means.

If you don’t need a ton of power than the four cylinder 2.5 Liter with 169 hp engine will probably meet your needs. However, if you like more of a kick when you push the pedal to the metal then you might want to opt for the six cylinder engine which puts out 268 hp Autel MaxiSys MS906BT. If you are looking for a more engaging and athletic ride that offers betting handling around corners and turns a bit then the Camry probably wouldn’t be a great choice as it doesn’t offer a very engaging ride and it’s geared more towards comfort.

Although it’s affordably priced, the Camry offers a large array of amenities to make your drive comfortable including a compact disc player, an adjustable steering wheel and 16″ alloy wheels. The SE model adds in a JBL audio system with a CD changer Autel MaxiDiag MD808, Bluetooth compatibility, a moonroof and additional wooden accents on the interior. The interior has been well designed with comfortable seats and a large number of amenities for the price. Cargo space is at 14.5 cubic feet which is average for its size.

Toyota designers have included a large number of safety features which consist of front and side bags, side curtain bags and knee airbags, traction control and stability control. A feature which stands out is the seatbelt which automatically adjust to the passenger’s height. The 2010 model performed quite well in crash tests garnering a total of five out of five stars from the NHTSA for front and side impact tests.

If you care more about substance than flash then the Camry would be a great choice. It’s a simple and no frills car that will last for many years and get you from point A to point B. In addition, it’s also affordable and a very well-known leader and best seller in in its class. The base cost of the Camry is around $18k, a competitive price when you consider how long the Camry brand has been around.
