Hello everyone,

Is it normal for an A/Z plan purchase to be charged for Fuel Charge, Advertising Assessment, and Destination and Delivery Fees? Don't mind the blue circles, that was something that the dealer did.

I am more familiar with X Plan than A/Z, but I am quite sure that the answer is yes. Those items are part of the dealer invoice, and the plan costs are based on the dealer invoice. The plan costs (A/Z, D and X) are shown and are non-negotiable. The ad, destination and fuel costs are included in those numbers and not added on.

I know this is an old thread, but in the case that somebody stumbles upon it in the future, let me see if I can answer.

Based on the plan rules:
  • As an AZ-Plan participant, you are authorized to see the dealer invoice for the vehicle you intend to purchase. Ask the dealer to show you this invoice and point out the AZ-Plan price for your review. The "A" or "Z" Plan price is the amount shown in the box labeled "AZ Plan" near the bottom of the factory invoice. The New Vehicle Purchase Plan price includes advertising, transportation, fuel charges and Company administrative fees. The dealership may not charge extra for these items.
Also:
  • Dealers will be permitted to assess up to $75 in documentary fees on each delivery to an eligible purchaser under the terms of the Plan, unless otherwise provided by state or local laws or regulation.
  • The $275 administration fee covers costs of managing the New Vehicle Purchase Program.

Anything in addition to that, would be in violation of plan rules.
