The dealers go with the flow as long as it works for them. With the dollar the way it is, the reasons to buy locally are becoming less. Warranty, typical is 6 months, most people will tell you that your more than likely to break something and then be told its due to abuse. If its major, take the unit back over the line.
Some Canadian quads this year have Mexican v.i.n.s. It was/ is B.s. that Quads manufactured in this country sell for more here.
One dealer told us that we should buy local so that parts would be readily available. Laughable, If saving $2000-4000, you would have enough cash to keep entertained while waiting for parts.
We're part of NAFTA, so why such a large differance in prices?.If Americans thought we sold oil to them for higher price,they would have bitched as loud as possible.
the sheep we have in Ottawa will do f.a for us. The Dealers really are the ones that stand to lose the most. With the Canadian $ the way it is and prices
so low in the states, not hard to guess where the sales will be.
I bought local and have a good dealer.
