I bought mine at Helfman Ford in Sugar Land (South Houston) and paid no FDAF...they never even brought it up. Just looked through all my paperwork and its not anywhere to be seen.

My Buyer's Order simply lists a "cash delivery price." It doesn't break down the cost of the individual options and line items.

However, if the advertising fee is written into the buying contract by the dealer it is another example of a dealer trying to pass along his expense to the buyer.

What Fees Should You Pay?
I stand corrected. I saw "advertising fee" in the main post and didn't verify the line items on my actual invoice. The dealor did attempt to charge me two different bogus fees to pad up the low USAA price. I refused to pay either. You are correct however that FDAF is included in the invoice price. I never noticed because the number I got from USAA and the dealer invoice matched. Thanks for the link. It made my bookmarks and I look forward to sharing it with others in the future.
