Why I try to avoid the Dealer

So heres a quick story on why I hate the dealership. So I recentley picked up a new 2010 and wanted to get an extra key made to leave in my buddies trailer in case I lose mine he will have a copy. We do this with our truck and trailer keys as well. Anyway I calll the Dealership and they connect me to the girl in the parts dept. I say I would like to order a replacement key for my Teryx either already cut or a blank. She says "you mean a T-Rex" I say I dont care what you call it I just need a key. She puts me on hold for about 2 minutes and come back to say "T-Rex is made by T-Rex the are an independant company you will have to call them for a key" I said you must be shitting me you work for Kawi in the parts dept and think the Teryx is made by an idependant company. She says " Oh Kawi makes it let me go see what I can find. ... I just hung up. Thank God for the info on the Forum and the Vendors who actually know their shit. I thought youd get a kick out of this story

My buddy who owns a RZR just told me a few days ago a simular story. He went to his dealership to buy an air filter for his RZRS. The girl behind the parts counter asked him if that was made by Polaris. Unbelievable!

Kinda have to blame the owner of the dealership itself... I mean you pay for what you get... No one that actually knows something is going to work at a atv dealer for long because it pays crap.
