Except that it doesn't save on maintenance costs because the dealers charge at least double what my after-market mechanic does. And the dealers often aren't very good.

Then bring the new vehicle to the after-market mechanic for maintenance.

I'm also in the 'buy new' camp, and the only thing my vehicle goes to the dealer for is warranty work. Beyond that, DH does it or the local mechanic handles it, but there's no reason to take the vehicle back to the dealer for maintenance that is not covered under warranty.
