Default Car dealerships and hidden charges

Apparently there has been an issue with car dealerships adding hidden
charges to inflate the standard DMV registration fees. There are a number of
various charges that are suspected of inflating the various fees paid for
newly purchased or leased cars. If you check out
http://www.lawyersandsettlements.com/case/dmv there is more information on
this and what you can do about it. There is also a free case evaluation for
those who suspect they might have been subject to this. I hope this may be
of help to some.

In Texas the "hidden" fee isn't so hidden. It's called the "DOC" fee,
short for documentary. It is the (imo usurious) amount the dealer charges
for performing the title registration paperwork. They also drag their
heels on it and many dealers only do titles 1 day out of the month. Thus
they have your tax, title & tag fees plus the "doc" fee, all of which they
are holding and using or earning interest on until the spirit finally
moves them to file the paperwork. Meanwhile you're driving around on a
21-day temporary tag which in most cases is expired at least 7-10 days
before you actually receive your tags.

DOC fees vary, but average $75. The dealer will tell you the fee is
mandatory, which it isn't. You are free to do all the title work yourself
and take it to a Notary, pay the Notary $5 and go on your merry way.
