why should I go to a leasing company if I can go direct to the manufacturer? And probably get much better pricing on lease or finance.
You probably won't for a standard heimeshe car like Accord or Camry or Odyssey or Sienna etc. they do a lot of business with the dealers and get way better deals than you would. But by all means shop around. When I got a dodge charger (not a heimeshe car) I went straight to a dealer, which was a much bigger pain than the leasing guy, (had to negotiate with three dealers to get what I needed) but got a better deal.

I priced all of the cheapest places in Lakewood and Brooklyn for a Honda Odyssey. iLease in Lakewood came in the cheapest to buy (though Westmount is cheaper to lease, and on the Sienna). Is there any reason to be afraid of buying from a place that's A) relatively new, and B) 70 miles away (I live in Brooklyn), in the event that I end up needing any kind of service?

My first car I bought from NY Auto Mall, and when I had a problem getting the local dealer to fix something under warranty, NY Auto Mall was very helpful and responsive, since they've been around for years and have relationships with all of the local dealers. Should I be nervous about iLease being able to help me if any issues pop up (or for any other reason)?
I have great experiences with ilease, he always helps with ANY issue (even when it was not his responsibility at all).

Instead the broker does that work for you they could be getting it from a few hundred miles away because they get a better deal there
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I bought my car (Subaru Outback) from a dealer in Toms River (south of Lakewood) which is close to 100 from my house in 5towns. The reason is 1)they had the best price (and I shopped dealers in NY, NJ, CT, and MD) and 2)all of the local dealers had a 6-8 week wait for delivery (this was the towards the end of the past winter which was very bad so there was an increase in demand) and this dealer had the exact model I wanted in stock.
Yes, I did schlep last week down to the dealer to get work done (install a remote starter) but that was only because I paid for it when I bought the car but it was out of stock (I also took the day off and biked down to Atlantic City. Awesome ride.). And yes, I will go back there for the first two years of service, but only because it is free. But after that, I don't think it matters which dealer I go to. If the car has a problem and it is covered under the warranty, I think any certified local dealer will fix it, no?
BTW I called several of the frum brokers and none of them came close to the price I got (and all had a 6-8 week delivery time frame). They tried convincing me to get a different car but obviously they never owned a Subaru.

1000% This is my second Subaru. I gave my first one to my son. Unfortunately he won't be able to drive it for another 8 years when he turns 16. :)

exactly my point, with the heimeshe cars. but the broker couldn't get me a deal on a dodge charger, because they had no relationship with Dodge dealers.

Same idea - they don't have a relationship with Subaru dealers, so you're better off doing the legwork yourself. Now, I don't know if I'd drive 100 miles for free service (and this from a guy who used to commute 130 miles daily for 3 years).

Nah, I used it as an excuse to take the day off and go biking. Was a great 70 mile ride. Looking forward to doing it again in September when I'm due for an oil change. There was one road that for about 15 miles, not a single private car passed us, only construction trucks .

You should be able to get service by any Subaru dealer and not drive 100 miles, at least that's how it works with Toyota

Some dealers offer free maintenance (oil changes, etc.) When you buy or lease from them. Maybe that's what he meant. Still not worth the trip IMO.

I'm talking about that free maintenance, with Toyota you can do it by any dealer.
