Dealer Fees and AMG Fees?

Asked by Aug 23, 2019 at 01:14 AM about the 2016 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 450 AMG

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I was at toyota of kendall dealership looked
at a 2016 C 450 AMG. I asked for the price of
the car and the salesman said it was $35k
and some change (which I found weird) since
online it was $33k and some change so i told
him how much i found the car for online. To
which he replied, “we can give you the online
price.” I was like okay.. sounds fishy. Why
didnt they give the online price first?
Anyways, so i test drive the car and fell in
love. Got to table and he comes back and
some how the price of the car sky rockets
from $33k to $40k. I looked at the extra fees
such as dealer fee, registration fee, and tax
fee which I would have been fine with which
came out to a grand total of 37k but what
made it 40k was an “AMG” charge is that a
real thing? I have to pay an AMG fee to own
an AMG? I find that absurd and there’s only 5
months left of warranty on the car which I
had to ask about first and even then they
were reluctant to tell me. If you were
wondering, yes I did walk away without the
car. But back to the real question. Is there
actually a fee to own an AMG or are they
pulling that out of their behind?

Walk away! Some unscrupulous Dealers add ridiculous fees just to jack up the price of the vehicle so they can make more money! They don't deserve your business! Hope that helps! Jim
