It's surprising that an automaker sells parts for its cars???

A lead-acid battery is just not something that very many people buy from
the dealer.  It's kind of like tires...how many people buy tires from
the dealer?

The "dealer" as you call him stops being a "dealer" after the car is
purchased and the service isn't warranty.

The "dealer" as you call him is an independent businessman, competing
head to head with every other shop in town.

He sells tires, batteries, etc, etc.

Your vision of the "dealer" is warped.

Wow...you really like to throw out strawmen here to see what sticks.  I
suppose I could say that the 'dealer' is not an independent businessman,
doesn't compete head to head with other shops, doesn't sell tires and
batteries, etc. but ...those are not true and are not even what we're
talking about.  My comment was that very few people buy tires and
batteries from a 'dealer' (and I think everyone knows what a 'dealer'
is.)  I don't see you actually disagreeing with that comment...just
tossing out alternative stuff to argue about.  Go for it.

"Strawmen"?  No.  Not at all.

And certainly not out-and-out untruths, like what you do.
