Dealership Fees – Things you should know

Buying a new car may prove to be a tricky affair, especially if you are a novice to this industry. You may not be aware of and understand the various fees printed on the price quote. Some of these fees are mandatory while others are negotiable. When you don’t know what fees you must pay for, and what you need to question, the process can become pretty expensive.


However, you do not have to worry, as we will help you learn about these dealer fees associated with buying new cars.

All-in Price Advertising as per OMVIC (Ontario Motor Vehicle Industry Council)

As per the Motor Vehicle Dealers Act, every dealer registered with OMVIC must follow all-in advertising – which means the price (for both new and old car) must include all charges and fees that the dealer wants to collect from the customer. There cannot be any hidden fees at all.

Must to include fees in advertised price:

  • Freight: Freight fee is charged for transporting the car from the factory to dealership. The amount of this fee is determined by the manufacturer.
  • Pre-delivery inspection/expense: This fee is also set by the manufacturer and charged for getting the car ready for driving by filling the gas, checking coolant, engine oil, lights, windows, air conditioning and lot more.
  • Government taxes: You need to pay for government taxes such as air tax, tire tax and regulatory fees. OMVIC is responsible for keeping dealer fees transparent, and ensuring that dealerships are committed to keeping their customers well-informed about the fees incurred when buying new cars.

The dealerships are obligated to incorporate the cost of products/services that are pre-installed on the car, in the advertised price, such as warranties, nitrogen or tire protection package, theft deterrent or security products and fuel. Keep a note that while dealerships are required to list all the fees in the price, these fees must also be mentioned separately and given on the final bill of sale.

What’s not incorporated?

Licensing and HST may not be included in the advertised price. When this is the case, the dealer will mention it in the advertisement prominently and clearly. Licensing fee indicates the cost of car plates and registration, and doesn’t include any additional fees or charges added by dealer.

Type of fees where you can negotiate

Administration fees: These fees include transaction, financial documentation and licensing, and sometimes may also cover in-car features such as satellite radio and bluetooth. You have ample scope of negotiation here with the dealership.

Extended Warranty: It is mostly set by the manufacturer and in certain cases, by third party vendors. It is solely your discretion if you would like to extend the warranty or not.    

All the legitimate dealer fees on new cars are usually given on the invoice, and if you are unsure about any taxes or fees, don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. In case you want extra features to be included in your car, such as VIN etching, rust protection, and block heater installation, it is better if you shop around because dealerships tend to charge hefty amounts for these.

How to Negotiate Using Dealer Invoice Reports

When you are in the market looking for a new car, it’s important that you educate yourself with essential tips and knowledge to make the best decision. From obtaining a dealer invoice report to the negotiation itself, ensuring that you have the best information from the beginning will prove to be beneficial to you.

Keep reading below to uncover how having a dealer invoice report in your hands before you step into the dealer’s office, can help you get the best car deals in Canada.

Obtaining a Dealer Invoice Report

Dealer invoice reports are important for both the dealers and customers to understand vehicle value. When vehicles are transported to a dealership, a certain price is paid to the manufacturers — which is referred to as the invoice price. The price seen on the sticker of vehicle ads is the MSRP – manufacturer’s suggested retail price, which incorporates the margins set for dealers.

Whether you are financing or leasing a car, invoice reports are essential as the purpose of them is to provide an accurate understanding of the vehicle you will be driving.

Know the hidden details

Buying a new car is an important decision, with a major part of your savings at stake, you ought to know even the minutest detail involved in the process. Dealer invoice reports will give the dealer’s cost, along with hidden factory incentives and rebates that you are entitled to when buying new car.

When you have all this information with you, you can ask dealers for their starting quotes, and you’ll be able to identify any unnecessary costs. The dealer will know that you’ve done your homework and are quite serious about finding the best car deals.

Negotiation power

Provide a reasonable number to begin with during negotiation, by adding a specific percentage to the invoice price. Usually the dealer’s margin is not more than 8.7% as per recent research, and it would be wise to consider this factor when negotiating. Keep the dealer’s perspective in mind as they are looking to satisfy their customers but also expected to make a certain amount of revenue. Since you have your dealer invoice report, you will be able to identify what number to start with and what the ideal negotiated numbers would be for both parties.

3% – 5% Rule

A smart negotiation tactic would be to follow the 3 to 5% rule. Add 3-5 percent to the invoice price for the dealer margin. If you keep the expectations realistic and do your research, you will certainly be able to negotiate a price in your favour.

Should You Buy or Lease Your Next New Car?

Anyone that has ever had a new car has an opinion on whether it is best to own or lease a new car. A recent survey was done on the acquisition habits of Ontario and Alberta new car buyers in terms of the payment method they selected on the procurement of their last new car (which was transacted within the last 18 months).  The results weren’t surprising but they might be interesting to the average individual.

According to the survey, 65 percent of people purchased their new car (60 percent opting for dealer financing offers and five percent arranging their own money – whether they had it saved up or used a personal line of credit), 35 percent of people leased their new vehicle.

“These numbers are quite accurate and very similar to other polls that I’ve seen published,” says Jim Matthews, president, LeaseBusters. “So, that begs the question, which method is better?  The short answer is – neither!”

Ownership or long-term rental (lease) is a personal / business decision and both methods have their very unique pros and cons; the more appropriate question is why do 65 percent own and 35 percent lease?

After reviewing a healthy list of pros and cons, the real answer is; people who elect to own a car are happy to keep a car for more than eight years.  Leasing customers only want to keep their vehicle for four years or less.  And this is the answer to whether you should buy or lease your next new car.

If you are happy to keep your new car for more than eight years (and keep in mind, it takes the average Canadian close to six years – 72 months – to pay for the car in full), then you should buy/own that car and be prepared to spend needed money to maintain, repair and pamper that car.  In this era, new vehicles are so well-built that this feat is not that difficult and not prohibitively expensive.

If you want to change vehicles every two, three or four years; the only affordable option is for you to lease the vehicle.  A four-year lease payment is often the same a 72-month loan payment so the monthly costs are similar to the ownership method; the only difference is after the lease term expires, you simply give the vehicle back to the lessor (the leasing company which is typically the financial arm of the automaker) and lease another new car.  Just be prepared, vehicle leasing requires a commitment to a perpetual monthly payment – although experts have quipped that a 72, 84 or 96-month loan payment can be construed as a perpetual payment.

So, there you have it; now you know whether you should buy or lease your next new car.  The only thing you have to decide is how long you want to keep your next new car.  Changing technology is often the wildcard in these decisions, so be prepared – you may not make the right decision. But that’s ok, there are several means in the marketplace to help if you need to make changes midstream through your plan.

Car Leasing for Seniors

Although the Canadian population may be aging, Canadian senior seniors are aging vibrantly, gracefully and independently.

As an example, Jim Matthews cites, “Recently, my 86-year-old mother had to give up her driver’s license due to some minor medical issues.” Matthews, the President of LeaseBusters, notes, “She decided not to try to write the test to get it reinstated; it was a personal decision but I believe she was getting tired of the new stresses of driving on the streets of suburban Toronto.”

What happened to Jim’s mother is becoming increasingly commonplace amongst our senior community that are still healthy and active enough to drive their vehicles.  One day his mother was fine, the next day she was without a driver’s license and being subjected to an unexpected test.

The reality of her situation and the situation of other seniors is that they should continue to drive and enjoy their lives to the fullest – however, be prepared for the day when they have to “hang up” up their car keys and look to taxi services, Uber and family to help them with their transportation needs.

Which brings us to the most important component of seniors driving automobiles; the actual vehicles they are driving.  Seniors should be driving newer, reliable, safe and technologically savvy vehicles in order to keep them, their passengers and other drivers on the road confident.  Features such as blind-spot warning lights, lane departure warning monitors, autonomous braking to avoid crashes, rear camera are just a few features that make our drivers and our roads safer.  Unfortunately, many of these options are available on newer cars that are often expensive to buy but reasonably priced to lease.

Additionally, most seniors are on fixed incomes that are predicated on interest or dividend income resulting from shrewd investment opportunities.  Seniors shouldn’t be depleting the capital inside of these investments to purchase a new car; they should be using the investment income to pay for the lease’s monthly payment.

And finally, as was discussed from the onset, a senior’s life can change in an instant and they could find themselves in a position where they cannot drive their newer reliable vehicle.  If they owned the vehicle and were forced to sell it; they could lose between 25% and 40% of what they paid for the vehicle.  If they were leasing the vehicle; there are services available that will find a new buyer to take over the balance of the lease and only obligating the senior to pay some administrative fees to exit their obligation.

In the end, leasing new cars for seniors (rather than purchasing them) is a very positive step in safer roads and preserving the needed capital for seniors to be self-sustaining members of our society.  For many seniors or people who have aging parents; when the discussion of reliable vehicles come up, this topic should be on the agenda.
