First off, the name of the sticker is "MoN-roney Sticker" NOT "Maroney". This is the window sticker that is required by federal law to be afixed on all new vehicles containing the following information:
- Serial or Identification Numbers
- The final assembly point
- The name, and the location of the place of business, of the dealer to whom it is to be delivered
- The method of transportation used in making delivery of such automobile, if driven or towed from final assembly point to place of delivery
- The Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP or "sticker price") of the base vehicle
- The MSRP of optional equipment installed on the base vehicle
- The transportation charges for delivery of the vehicle to the dealer from the manufacturer
- The TOTAL MSRP of all the above.
- The EPA mileage estimates are also normally included on this sticker
The Automobile Information Disclosure Act was passed in 1958 and was authored by A.S. "Mike" Monroney, a longtime Oklahoma congressman who wrote the law, and who's name is constantly being "mis-pronounced" as "Moroney" throughout the entire automotive industry.
The actual United States Code is Title 15, Chapter 28, Sections 1231-1233.
