What do you do when all the dealers around you suck? The one that i bought from last summer has always treated me good in the past. Here is my story, last year i bought a new hustler. I told my dealer "look i am down sizing from 2 old exmarks two the new hustler. I am not going to play the price game with you , i am going to pay you the asking price 10,200 plus tax. In return i want good service, meaning instant service or a loaner mower" Well i buy the mower back it off the trailer and it cuts off, call them they want me to bring it back in to see what is wrong. I couldn't get it on the trailer so they had to come get it. It was old gas from sitting on the lot. They got it fix i had to go pick it up (I don't feel like i should have to do, but i did, considering they are a 1/2 hr away and it was there fault) Half the summer goes by and it is smoking every morning when i start it , they had been blaming it in the fuel additive ,they put in it. Finally i said it has been 3 months and it is loosing antifreeze, it isn't the fuel crap it is blown up. This fall it went in they pulled it apart and sure enough it was they.Took them 3 months to put a new engine on it. I got it under warranty but the antifreeze, oil, and filter i got billed for which is BS because it was a problem from new. I never said a word. I took it home in the snow storm, i couldn't get it inside so i left it buy the door. When the snow melted i wanted to clean it up, but it wouldn't start. I called them 7 times over 3 weeks before they picked it up. Then 7 more times over 3 weeks before i got it back. I go to use it friday and the belt to the hydro pumps break after 10 mins of use. I called him at 9:47 i wanted a part number to the belt so i can get it at the local napa instead of going all the way over there. He tells me he will call me right back . I waited for a half hour,I called he was busy, 10 more he was busy, 10 more he was busy, then i told the boy on the phone i needed him to call me now i am loosing money because i have two guys with me and don't know what to do. I end up finding some numbers and got them from a dealer that has some parts but don't work on them. My dealer has yet to call me back. Now i spent all this money on a mower to have a warranty just to have a dealer that won't do jack. What do i do? The next closest dealer that i hear of that is worth a crap is over a hour away. I really don't want to change,because a hour each way i can loose some serious time on breack downs.Plus he most likely won't give good service because i didn't buy it from him. I just want the service i was promised. I even thought about trading it in on a different brand, but would loose my a$$ because i paid to much for it and it isn't even a year old.
