    Most people pay excessively for their vehicles because they don't know what to really do when they go to buy one. Everyone in the process of making and then selling you a vehicle want to swindle you out of money so they can then go home with their pockets stuffed.

    I've never paid *over* sticker price for a new vehicle - I save thousands by being smart, well researched and well planned. .. they can bump the base cost of my next vehicle up $500.00 for this system and I'll still walk away paying thousands LESS than the average joe at the dealership.

    If I can haggle and pull it of then there's no reason why someone else couldn't do the same thing.
    That's very nice. Any intellegent person will haggle with auto sales people and few are dumb enough to pay the sticker price, but this has little to do with the subject at hand. The cost of accessories is included in the price and sales people know how low they can sell a car and still make a profit. You are haggling with a dealer, not the auto manufacturer.

    No - it has EVERYTHING to do with the subject at hand. . . people lose thousands by being taken advantage of by the dealer when they go to purchase their vehicle. NOT by the government regulating one small-cost feature.

    How much, each month, will one person pay because of this camera-system? $5.00 (if even that)?
    How much, each month, will one person pay because they were taken advantage of? $100.00? $200.00 - or more?

    Obviously - for those arguing against this being mandated - if they CARED about the cost they would be concerned with *where* their costs actually come from.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    It's not a matter of inelligence so much as it is that many people prefer to avoid the stresses involved in the haggling. Different people value things differently, and people value their time and energy in varying ways. It doesn't make the person who pays the least the most intelligent.

    Yes, actually it does. I don't haggle with car sales people, but I research what I should pay, offer it to them, and if they don't accept I go somewhere else.

    Very simple.

    Not every thing that is a good thing ( this appears to be a good idea ) should be mandated.
