Whats your thougts on this.

So as most of you recall I put up a thread on a "2012 F8" a little bit ago talking about my clutch going bad. So It's be since Christmas eve that I've been without my "world class" snowmobile and It's been in the shop for about 2 weeks now do to the clutch on back order, the dealer was nice enough to call me to keep me in the loop on what's going on and said It's now a waiting game. Now I'm not the one for games nor am I one to wait for anything when I'm making payments on something I only road for 5miles and being brand new. So I've been calling Arctic Cat corporate for the last 3 days and they have not called me back on anything. So what's my next step??? Plus because of all this I decided to push an issue that I was going to let rest, and the issue that I plan to push is.. when I bought the sled and was doing research on it I was looking at the spec sheet, now it clearly states in the "standard features" that it comes with an electric start as part of it being standard. Mine didn't not come with electric start, isn't that false advertisement? So I was going to push for it. What do u guys think?? I feel that I should be compensated in some fashion for my down time for not being able to ride no matter if It's under warranty or not, that's not the point.

what went bad in the clutch , may be you could get the parts and get back running . and when the new clutch comes in the dealer will work with you.

I don't know, the dealer said that arctic cat was going to replace the whole thing rather then put parts on it. The primary was locking up on it

It's best to replace the whole thing. If you have documentation that PROVES elec start is standard, they should put it on for you.

i say your getting bent over and ridden hard ! typical corperate america ! what about a loner sled ? the dealership has to take some responsibility on this. why should the dealership be innocent on this,they've chosen to sell arctic cat. the profit they make selling you the sled, commits them to customer satisfaction. if the dealership was a not for profit organization,then i would say its 100% on the factory.

The only proof I have that shows and states that electric start is standard is on there web page for the line up of the 2012 Cats.

Rite, but here's the thing.. the dealer I bought it from is an hour + away from me and the dealer that I took it to is 10 minutes away. And the reason I didn't buy from them is they didn't wanna make any deals put I'll let them do the work.
