If you haven’t shopped for a new car lately, you might balk at an item near the bottom of the window sticker: the destination charge. Once a nominal fee of around $500, such charges have ballooned in recent years. Destination charges on the top three best-selling cars through May 2019 — the Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-Series and Ram pickup — are more than $1,500 apiece.
Think that’s steep? You’re not alone.
