So my vehicle was ordered out of state, within 1/2 hour (30mi) of the TRX plant. Will I still be charged the $1695 destination fee? That seems absurd, considering the location of the dealer & plant. Just wondering for all of you who purchased vehicles from dealers near plants in the past. TIA.

Nope. I think destination is a given and I also think it is consistent across the board. Some units may cost them less to ship and some may cost more. I'm certain they have bean counters that came up with a figure that averages all that out.

Figured. How do they transport them short distances? Truck? Surely don't drive them 30 miles to the dealer...

For a short distance, I'm sure they put it on a truck but I don't know what the cut-off is in terms of distance between truck only vs rail/truck transport.

I've worked on projects in Detroit and I've seen plenty truck transports running around delivering vehicles
