Everything old is new again....

...not really, when it's old, it's old. We went to pick up the Cub Cadet on day 41 mind you. Everyone apologized for it taking so long (words are easy to use). Thank goodness they only chargedus $40 for labor, so it wasn't as bad as we thought it would be. We went outside and waited for them to bring it out. 15 minutes later, they couldn't find it. I told them, "it's the one with the cob webs growing on it." No one laughed but my husband! My husband told them the model number and the idiot guy said oh that's a Craftsman - NOOOOOO. Finally they found it and that guy apologized a few times, I was in the car by that point and decided to keep my mouth shut. One of the office people I talked to told me they can't get good help. All the guys want to do is stand around talking and smoking. I can believe that! There is no way we would ever buy anything, even a small part, from them. The new one is still about 12 days out, so my husband will be using this one and then a 4 sale sign will go on it. They gave us an idea of what it's worth so we have something to go on! We are just glad this part of it is over. I wonder if Cub Cadet's home office would find this interesting? Photo: //pixabay.com/en/news-globalization-global-426892/

Once we get the new one I'm considering writing a complaint to them.

@LeaPea2417 I think so, how else do they know how their products are represented.

@miniam They sorta have you - one of the other dealers closed so they are the closest one. But we'll be traveling to a different place and pray for better service.

They might, but if this is a small independent business there might not be tons they could do about it

They are an authorized dealer and repair shop for the Cub Cadet products. The home office should care how their authorized dealers treat customers.

If the situation is as bad as that they'll probably be out of business soon. Some people have no work ethic.
