So I bought a new Maverick xds turbo 2 seater 2015 (so I thought) on 2/1/2016, well just now my dealer called me and let me know I have the wrong machine! What the hell, so my title and all my paper work match but my machine has the wrong vin number. The dealer gave me a 2016 and not the 2015. So after those freezing ass nights in the garage installing harnesses and doors and belt temp, ect... My dealer said he is going to switch everything over to the new machine but now I cant ride this weekend and basically a waste of my time that I spent installing accessories, gas I'm going to spend driving 80 miles round trip to the dealer (2 trips). What would you guys do or what are you thoughts on this situation? Its a big mistake by the dealer and he is going to loose money I would think because he can't sell it as new. I have never heard of this happening with any new purchase! I'm taking up the machine tomorrow, to talk to him about it.

I'd explain to him the cost he'll have in labor to swap your accessories, the amount he's going to lose on selling the 16 as a used unit, and see what kind of a deal he'd cut on letting you keep the 16. If it be a minimal cost for you it could turn out okay.

Tell him the deal was done in good faith and it's over. You aren't responsible for their error. I don't believe he can do a thing.

I dont know what to think about this, cause if I ever go to sell it or warranty claim or blm or cops check me and the machine doesn't match the title it looks stolen.

Just talked to him. You"ve put some miles on it. Scuffed up some plastic putting your new stuff in it. He is going to loose more on the deal if you bring it back. He can't sell it as new anymore. No way

I think you got the deal of the year!! I wouldn't give it up!! There will be no love lost from the dealership long term, regardless they will still want to continue to see your wallet.
hurt dealership feeling come from your first couple warranty claims not original purchases!! haha

I'd keep the machine they sold me, unless they bring you the other and they switch out all the upgrades...everything at their expense. Its not your fault or expense!!

The cost to the dealer for a 16 vs a 15 is minimal. He should just give you a new title and be done with it. If for some reason he feels he has to swap it out then he should pay you for your troubles, gas, time traveling, and everything else. At that point he will just give you a new title and if not tell him to come get it with a refund including a check for the accessories you put on it including your time at $80/hr( ha ha). Sounds like your weekend is ruined maybe. The dealer screwed up and should not have you inconvenienced due to their error. OH, he can sell it as a demo untitled if you put miles on it.

the Dealer does not give two shits about you, I would just get the title for the 2016 and keep the newer machine.

Keep it. It is worth more money if you ever want to sale or trade it. It was there mess up they should give you a hell of a deal I deal with them years ago and they really good but that is when Gary owned it.

I would get it resolved BEFORE spending your time and $'s taking it too him.
If resolution requires an exchange then he should send you the new '15 and pick up the '16. HE should incur all costs and aggravation not you.
Sounds back ass wards him making the error but you having to spend the time and $'s to correct his mistake. And worse take the liability if for example bike gets damaged like falling off the trailer before you get it back to him.
With the cost of the switch maybe he will agree to a simple paperwork swap and you get to keep the machine.

I agree with what all these guys are saying. It's on them and they need to make it right. I wouldn't take it anywhere until an agreement is made. Like stated before he will likely lose money in the end anyway by the time he pays for everything to be switched and for your fuel and time, defiinitely more than the difference he paid for the two machines. I bet the biggest reason he wants to switch is because the paperwork will be harder to make right on their end to switch over. I for sure wouldn't let them bull doze me into anything. Another option is to call can am direct and talk to them. I'm sure they will probably just tell you to work it out with your dealership but it's an option.
