Hassett Automotive


Be aware! When buying a car, several dealerships blindside you with various extra fees. For over 40 years, Hassett has maintained a reputation of honesty and respect for our customers. When we give you a price on a high-quality pre-owned or new vehicle, that is the price you pay. There are dealerships who are misleading and will charge extra fees, but never here!

Here is what you should look for when you are buying a car:

  • No delivery fees: the new or pre-owned vehicle is already located at the dealership, therefore, no customer should ever be charged for delivering the car!
  • No prep fees: Do you get charged for your sandwich to be sliced and wrapped? No- thus why you should not be charged for the car to be prepared. The dealer’s job is to make sure that the car is ready for the road so no charges should be added!
  • No transport fees: Since your vehicle is not being delivered to your home, this fee is completely unnecessary!
  • No ‘hidden cash down’ prices: Dealers advertise a certain price but when you are about to buy it, they then tell you the price includes the down payment to get that price.
  • No forced financing: many dealers will force you to finance with them at a higher interest rate in order to get the advertised selling price. If you do not finance with them, they will charge you extra for the price of the car.

You should know as a part of your final price, Hassett does charge $75 for preparing all paperwork required by New York State. This is the state-mandated amount that can be charged.
