shipping cost charges far too much
 
$1,095 for shipping is really exorbitant. For the enormous scale of hundreds of thousands of vehicles shipped per year to standard destinations, the cost per unit IMO, should be half that amount.
This is nothing but excessive padding of profits to greater and greater levels.

Of course it is...Im old enough to remember what is was waaay back in the day...and the usual egregious rip offs perpetrated in the name of "dealer prep"....they just get to be more and more creative don't they???

That is the same destination charge that was in effect at the end of the 2013 MY. The early part of the year it was $995.

The manufacturer cost of something rarely has a direct comparison to the price they charge. I picked up my ram 50 miles from the plant, yet I pay the same as someone in California. Hawaii only pays $50 more. Prices are set to maximize profit in just about every industry. I worked at one consumer electronics company where our manufacturing cost was $2.00. We sold it for $50. That is what the market was willing to pay. Just free market economics.
