Overcharged Governmental Claims

The most common and egregious overcharge on a vehicle purchase contract is Vehicle License Fees. The formula for Vehicle License Fees is set by statute: Vehicle Price (the cash price without fees and optional products) * 0.65% which works out to be $65 in fees for every $10,000 in price. The DMV website will even calculate the Vehicle License Fees owed for you. There is no excuse for a dealer to put the wrong amount on the purchase contract. If the amount is wrong, the dealer is intentionally stealing your money and is probably stealing from every other customer too.

Dealers have also been caught overcharging for registration fees, document processing fees, emissions testing and smog certification fees.

If a dealer is stealing money from you, Auto Law can help get your money back and obtain court orders to stop the dealer from stealing money from other consumers.
