If you are shopping for a new car deal, do not expect to pay for each charge on the window sticker.
While the details of the Monroney sticker are actual costs, many car dealerships add a second window sticker. It includes a list of accessories installed by the dealer, and other miscellaneous charges. The options and prices on the added sticker are deemed as negotiable and optional.
In example, if a dealership adds a paint sealant to a Saturn Sky, the consumer is not required to pay even though the sealant is already on the new car.
