Survey of Extra Charges in the Retailing of New Vehicles

The project will add to the body of knowledge around deceptive sales practices in the pricing of new vehicles with objective data that is currently needed by regulators and consumers alike. APA will demonstrate the limits of information currently available on the Internet concerning vehicle pricing and suggest avenues for enforcement by regulators and provide guidance to consumers about which charges are fair, overpriced, or possibly illegal.
