What to do?

I recently bought a Turf Tiger 61" with the 29hp EFI Kohler. When I researched the mower the scag literature said it was a 12mph machine and the website said it was a 10.5mph machine. I definitely wanted a 12mph mower and the dealer assured me it was. I was skeptical so I called the dealer and asked if he was sure, he said he checked with scag and that it was indeed rated for 12. I sent scag an e-mail asking them myself and they told me it was a 10.5 machine. Now I know 1.5 mph is no great difference but the fact remains that I was sold the mower I did not want. Now i'm regretting buying the thing at all. Any suggestions? What would you do?

The scag rep assured me it is a 10.5 mower. Not what I wanted. The dealer either lied or was misinformed. Either way it sucks for me.

Do you have any paper work that says the mower will go 12 MPH?

I guess you could take in in for warranty repair because its too slow???

I would be mad as heck, especially with how much that dang thing costs. I would try to take it back and tell him in a nice way he lied to me. That's just ridiculous, it makes me mad because that is a very expensive piece of equipment.

Yeah I'm quite pissed. I told the rep I felt like I was duped. I'm waiting for his response. I told him I didn't want to take it to court but that I would like restitution. The scag pamphlet says it is 12mph. What's worse is the dealer assuring me that it was. I dont know what to do. I could have afforded any engine option I wanted but he sold me on the Kohler.

If it makes you feel any better the TT is one heck of a machine. I have personally operated some with over 4000 hours. They are tough! Sounds like the cheetah should have been sold to you.
