"Does my dealer care if I lease through you?
In most cases no. Leasing through an independent leasing company is the same as if you financed through your local bank or credit union. If they do give you a hard time, then they usually have something to hide. You can elect to get your vehicle at another dealership or threaten to give them a bad survey. This usually changes their attitude. As a consumer, you must stick up for your rights!"
