 Dealer gets me a one year old tractor for a new one

I just recently traded my one year old NH for a larger supposedly new 2000 model. The dealer doesn't have in stock the one I want, but he says no problem I can get one. So I have delivered my tractor and signed the contract with the new trator serial number on it. Friday he gets my new tractor in from another dealer, well guess what it's an unsold 1999 model and looks awful, the tires have already dry-rotted some. I am not going to accept it, I traded for a 2000 model not a 1999 model. Has anyone else had this trouble?

We as consumers must demand perfect customer service, otherwise who gets ripped off in the end, US! J.P. don't take anything less than you bargained for. As a matter of fact, demand more cause now your tractor is on their lot probably sold by now and you are without a machine until they find you what they promised.

 Dealer gets me a one year old tractor for a new one

I've known this dealer for a long time and traded with him last year for my old tractor, he's an old man, has always been seemed fair. I can't believe he did this on purpose, surely he didn't know that the tractor from the other dealer was built in 1999. I'll be calling in the morning, would have called tonight but his home number isn't listed (that bothered me some). As of today my old tractor was still on the lot. I looked at my contract and nothing is stated about the year model, only and N for new and the serial number of the tractor I am to receive. I don't know how this is going to work out tomorrow, but I'm not accepting this year old tractor for the price I paid.

John, certainly the tractor must be perfect if it is listed in the contract as "new". Tire rot is not acceptable at all! And seeing some tire rot would cause me to go over it with a fine tooth comb. But you should be aware that tractors are not normally divided into "years". They are new and current until sold. If it has all of the features of the current models then most ag people would consider it to be "new" regardless of the actual year of manufacture. If it has all of the modern features, why would you care when it was built?

Well, an agri person might not care when the tractor was built. I'm an investor and I care. In my mind if the machine was stamped 1999, then in the future say 5 years from now it would be worth less because of being considered a year older, even though I had taken possession in 2000. Plus I did not want a tractor that had set on someone's lot unattended for a year. These are my thoughts, plus $20,000 is hard to come by. Well it all has seemly worked out OK, my first call to the dealer was met with an attempt to change my mind, but when he saw I was firm he said he would go look at the new tractor and let me know, that it was still on the truck and he hadn't had a change to look it over. Of course a lot was said between us that wouldn't print well here. On the second call he was a changed person, said it was indeed built in 1999 and he was talking to another dealer now to get me a tractor that was built in 2000 and he wanted me to be happy and satisfied with the deal. So I took that to mean he didn't like the look's of the new tractor either. I guess tractor sales are slow enough now for dealers to be less arrogant. I didn't mean to be hard to get along with, I just wanted what I was paying for.

John I agree with you competely.When you go to a dealer and deal on a new tractor you don't normally mean a new year old tractor.I would really watch this dealer.Don't underestimate this guy -----they know exactly what they are doing. They don't stay in business making mistakes.As for people who see nothing wrong with this practice I think if the money were out of there pocket there thoughts would be alittle different.Ken

The year model of tractors varies according to what criteria that is used. They don't have the same model year changes as autos do. Carver Equipment has good definations on the differene criterias. Check it out at:

Jerry

I looked at the Carver site you mentioned, althought some good information, year models according to the site seems to change according to which group you are talking to. My money is riding on the fact that the manufacture date is stamped on the machine, thus in the future anyone trying to see what year model it is will use that date as an answer. Also the tractor in question would have missed any upgrades or improvements that may have come along since last October. Other opinions appreciated. Thanks

jray here,From my experience when You are buying a used tractor the salesman pretends to not know the year model and says it isnt important.Only the model number matters because they are all built alike. BUT---When you are selling or trading a unit the FIRST question I am asked is"What is the year model".Then the book comes out and he looks it up and gives a value for an "average"unit.Same with any mechanical machine of substantial value.Also according to local dealer the first year depriciation is about 10% or $2,000.00 on a new Ford/New holland 5610S.Age does matter.

Well, it looks like this deal is working out. My dealer has found a Feb 2000 tractor just like I wanted. I found the $2000 cash back statement from NH. So we are both going to be happy.
