Thanks fellas,
My neighbor has been trying to get a new Honda for over a year so that is out.
I currently have a 2017 with 26700 miles on it and it is getting tired. I pretty much use them for everything on the ranch. This spring I have two miles of fence to build that burned up last fall. It is very rough country that there is no way you could get a pickup into. I kind of have my back to the wall on this deal but I am not done fighting by any means.


I can't believe that cop put me in the back seat when I clearly called shotgun.

From what I have been seeing I would think your up a creek, unfortunately

I be willing to bet they have it in fine print the price is when u take delivery. There has been no morales with some of these companies now a days when they get all the recent demand for units

Try to find a Honda out there! Allocations are even worse for them compared to Polaris. I work for a dealership that sells Polaris, Honda, and BRP. There is no sign of it getting any better from Honda or BRP. Polaris we can order some entry level Rangers and almost all ATVís. Honda will not even let an order be placed for anything in our part of the country. The dealership had no way of predicting a price increase 6 months down the road given everything going on in this world. Itís definitely very unfortunate for the consumers and the dealerships.

well maybe the dealer shouldn't have taken money for the product he has no control over -- time for the dealership to step up and take a little hit to their bottom line or the manufacturer absorb a little of the increase. Not much of a manufacturer or a dealer if they won't do that.once you agree on a price and money changes hands --------

A deposit to hold a future allocation changed hands. Without a deposit on a machine, how does a dealership decide who gets the next allocation ( which are so very limited ) when the list of people wanting machines is a mile long? There has to be a way to separate serious buyers from tire kickers putting their names on a list, hence a deposit. How long would any business stay in business if they absorbed price adjustments all the time?

The computer chips are the problem
We've been cut off and many of the new manufactured vehicles and industrial equipment is being pushed back longer and longer as the computer chip shortage grows

At this rate no one will be able to buy new vehicles that aren't electric, and those cost more carbon to make than most regular vehicles release in a lifetime

Sounds like the Harley Davidson deal back in the 90's. $1000 down, no refunds and you didn't have a choice of color or know what the total coast was going to be.

Got Honda or Yamaha .

I've been there and done the Polaris ranger junk.

One simple word "JUNK"

And when got the new ranger they had broken promises

Starting with a free service, only thing that was free about it
Was the oil only.


Let me sugar coat this

Last year our new Honda Pioneer 1000 Special Edition was on order for almost 9 months. It was scheduled for delivery 4 times. Top, windshield, Fox custom suspension, all 4 A arms protected, full belly skid plate, Warn winch, Maxxis tires, LED light, extra switch panel, and rear view mirror were all factory installed. A very impressive machine.[Linked Image]

I bought a Ranger 500 back in 2004, At the time, Polaris was about the only one with a good sized UTV. This Ranger works all year long, would never be with out one, gets me into a lot of places nuisance trapping & plowing all winter. First thing I did when new, I replaced the battery with an full sized RV battery, The little one didn't.cut it. Over the years I have changed the oil, tires, starter, belt spark plug & brake pads . Still going strong.

The problem I have with Honda's is you can not get a full cab. When It is negative 30 that plastic sheeting you can buy does not to a heck of a lot. Right now Hondas are not an option as you can not even order one. I want something with a full cab or I might as well be riding my skidoo.

MT - Honda and aftermarket companies both offer full cabs. Heat, air conditioning, air freshener, or whatever else you like.

One of my customers has 5 side by sides. A Honda 700 he bought used with low miles from an oil company exec. The guy sold it because he wanted bigger. It has a full insulated aftermarket cab and heat. Nice rig.

I am hard to impress by equipment and gear. Power and torque are usually exaggerated. Not on this machine. Very good everything. Another plus is that as they go up in engine size, the body gains a bit of size. It seems to be a very good match!

The Special Edition adds quite a bit to the price. However it costs less than buying the accessories and upgrades and doing it yourself. It was an easy decision for me.

Did not know Hondas could not be ordered.

Did you check out the CanAm? They offer a full cab model from the factory.

The salesman or dealer trying to up-charge you needs a strong lesson in integrity.

Hope you find what you need.

She ended up buying a different gun just to keep her money and I bought it from her. Our world is changing for the worse.

You have a sales contract. Do not pay the extra 5%

I love capitalism but this is one of the down falls. Being able to ride the price as such is what the market allows. We as outdoorsmen need to quit these fools to reduce the demand and bring the prices under control.

Happened to me on a Speed Queen washer and dryer set. Raisers the price $300 3 months after I ordered it. I made them split the difference. We gave up on Polaris a couple years ago.
