Hyundai and KIA Artificially Inflate Destination Fees
Scott Hirsch Law Group PLLC is currently investigating allegations that Hyundai Motor Company and KIA America, Inc. artificially inflate the destination fees they charge. Consumers pay destination fees for delivery of a new vehicle to the dealership from the port or factory. In violation of federal law, Hyundai and KIA fail to disclose the actual cost of transporting the vehicle.
Destination Charges Exceed the Rate of Inflation
Consumer advocacy groups have been studying the growing trend of vehicle destination charges increasing over the past several years. Many of the destination charges exceed the rate of inflation by 2.5 times. Automakers claim that the rising cost of the destination fee is due to an increase in cost for delivery. However, that is belied by the fact that the increase exceeds the rate of inflation.
Deceptively Raising Prices
There is a lack of transparency into exactly what these charges cover, as Hyundai and KIA identify these fees as “inland freight and handling.” Consumer advocacy groups say that these fees are in actuality a deceptive way for manufactures to raise the price of the vehicle without full disclosure.
Destination Charges have No Correlation with Distance Traveled
These destination fees vary by vehicle, and it appears Hyundai and KIA have a higher destination fee for their more popular vehicles, and has nothing to do with distance of travel.
