Question, I have seen Doc Fees range anywhere from $79 to $199. Can this be negotiated much lower. I have a hard time paying $80 to $200 for a few sheets of paper. Have people experienced success in negotiation this fee away of cost of their paper?

    Good question. In general, you'll have more luck negotiating the selling price of the vehicle down another few hundred dollars than you will with trying to negotiate the doc fee (or other dealership fees), so we'd recommend that strategy to offset the cost.

    Check out our article What Fees Should You Pay for more details about dealership fees, including a chart that shows which states have a regulatory limit on the doc fee.

    Good luck!
