Destination on a Jeep/Dodge/Chrysler is about $750, so it would probably be right around there.

I think it is the cost to transport the car from the port of entry to your local dealer. It can vary.

Not that it would make a ton of sense in the usual European delivery sense; but I wonder if they'd offer some sort of 'Mexican Delivery' option. I've always wanted to go there. Save on the destination and soak up some sun (and get maybe even get caught in the drug war).

There is what they call equalized freight and whether you pick up a car 3,000 miles from the factory or next door, you still pay destination charges.

That <i>might</i> be different <i>now</i>, but it was the norm for as long as I can remember.

The 500 is now listed in the <a href="http://www.edmunds.com/new/2012/fiat/500/101235876/optionsresults.html?action=2">Edmunds</a> site. For my zip code, the site is showing an expected 750$ destination fee

I was curious about what everyone is getting charged with for the Destination Fee. Typically I see any where from 700+ for other cars and I noticed on Carsdirect.com that it was only 500 for the Fiat..that is cool if they did that on purpose!

I can't speak as to why they did it, but apparently it's the same no matter where in the US the car is shipped. At least here in Central Florida the dealer says $500.
