I gave them the check my credit union provided and a $200 deposit. The reg. fees on the P&S are $60 license and $75 title. They are trying to tell me that was a servicing fee. I just want to make sure they can't legal go after me for that money.

The reason that you are being given for the alleged oversight is bogus. Before the car leaves the dealership's lot, the "DMV fees" are paid in full. The dealership has current information on the fees.

The dealership cannot legally go after you for the alleged DMV fee that should have paid and was indicated on the sale documents to have been paid before the car was delivered to you.
