Dealer Add-ons and Extras - are they worth it?



  • ken117ken117 Posts: 189
    There is one Honda dealer in College Park, Maryland who has come up with a cute little euphemism for its "rip off" sticker. This dealer refers to its practice of increasing its profits through the addition of overpriced add-ons as "accessorizing" the vehicle. This particular dealer has stated most of its clients appreciate its "accessorizing" improvements to the vehicles. The dealer also points out that one can always order a "stripped" vehicle. As a buyer of numerous Honda vehicles, I have yet to locate a "stripped" EX or LX.

    Coming in late here but almost ALL Honda dealers do this.

    We kept the accessories to a minimum adding the items that a lot of people wanted anyway such as splash guards on the EX's.

    There are stores in this area that added so many expensive (and usually unwanted) items that we wouldn't do dealer trades with them.

    Making a few extra bucks ins't a bad thing you know. :)
  • We did paint/interior protection packages on the last two cars we purchased.
    For the first car we purchased, we simply went to the detailing place the dealer out sourced the car to, at about half the price. The second car we bought, from the same dealer, we were offered a similar protection package, but this time with ding removal. We negotiated that price down by about a third, then took it.
