What fees does CarLink have?

CarLink is dedicated to transparent and straightforward pricing, with only one fee for documentation. $799 in NJ and $999 in FL. This fee covers administrative tasks such as filing and processing necessary documents, handling title and registration paperwork, and ensuring compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. Unlike other dealerships, we prioritize simplicity by excluding prep fees, loan processing charges, pre-delivery inspection costs and etching. What you see online is exactly what you’ll pay – no hidden surprises. In fact, our commitment to transparent pricing often results in substantial savings, often amounting to thousands of dollars when compared to other dealers who have a knack for sneakily adding fees at the last minute. It’s worth noting that, in addition to our pricing, you’ll also need to consider state sales tax and registration fees based on your state of residence.

Is there a cash or finance discount?

Whether you choose to pay by cash, check, or opt for financing, the price you see is the price you’ll pay. Unlike some dealerships that may adjust prices based on payment methods or even charge fees if you don’t finance with them, CarLink ensures that everyone receives equal treatment and a consistent, honest pricing experience.
