While the system isn't perfect, ensuring there is a parts distribution center at the same place you bought your car is a boon for consumers. Manufacturers are not set up to sell individual car parts to every car owner as they have to handle their own logistics (too big for UPS). If you buy a car online and the nearest dealership is hundreds of miles away you might just be completely screwed when it comes to maintenance.
