When purchasing a new car, the dealer may encourage you to buy add-on accessories at additional cost. Some of them are useful (like adding cruise control to a car that didn't come with one from the factory). Some, like extra chrome trim, mud flaps, trunk mats, etc. are useful only for adding extra profits to the salesman's commission. Choose carefully and you may find an item that fits your needs and cost less (for example, a plastic hamper for jumper cables, first aid kit, etc., rather than the "factory" trunk tray and cargo mat).
keepin' the beat goin' and passing it on!
