My dealer just got my new 2015 mid size 570 Crew EPS in. He's telling me the machine has 7 miles on it and 12 hours. Is this normal? Also, there is no plastic shield behind the back seat as I've been told on this forum that comes with the 2015 mid-size crews. Any comments would be appreciated.

12 hours...............Holy Moley.......Something is not right with that....Unless you bought a demo that your dealer got off another dealer.........

This is not normal for a new ordered in machine. Like Jungleman said, 12 hours is quite a bit of time to be considered new. Heck that is half way to the first oil change. If it were my decisionI would be having them get a different "new" machine or take a serious price cut or a bunch of free accessories on this one as long as you are ok with its condition.

Mine had less than 3 hours on it so the dealer threw in a hardened poly windshield, back window and a sport roof. I'd be looking for $1500 to $2000 off or equivalent in acc.:glee::encouragement:

I'm pretty sure when the key is turned forward the hours start on the clock.

I say some one left the key on over night.
I thought that the engine had to be running. I know it was that way on my '06 XP but haven't thought to check that on my '12 RZR.

Humm.... I'm surprised by the hours, heck my unit is 4.5 hr and 19.8 miles and owned it for 1 month. I'm not sure I would be too concerned with it as the warranty begins at purchase, but I would want something in return for taking a machine half way through the first oil change.

I replied below, and assuming you keep it, I would ask for a free complete 50 hr service (front diff, rear, oil's, etc.)

Hmmm...this may sound silly but are you sure it doesn't have 1.2 hours on it?! It doesn't sound right to have that many hours with only 7 miles! Since the hour meter registers slower at idle then it does at running RPM, it would have to idle for days to get 12 hours at idle RPMs!

Cheers

Yes, that is what the dealer indicated. The key was likely left on, but again it's got 7 miles on it and 12 hours. To me it's a demo, not a new unit. He did say they would change the fluids, but I just don't know.

Just going by what the dealer told me, 12 hours and 7 miles. He thought someone left the key on overnight. The dealer is 60 miles from me (I live up in the mountains) so I've not seen it. He did say he would do a complete fluid change on it, but it just bothers me I'm paying for a new unit and I'm getting a demo.

that would be the first hour meter I have ever heard of that runs while the engine doesn't! Typical hour meters register by RPMs the engine is running at...i.e. an idling engine that runs for an hour registers a fraction of an hour and registers one hour for an engine running at full,(working), RPM!
It defeats the purpose of an hour meter to keep track of engine/machine maintenance if it registers without the engine/machine running!

Exactly, and that's how the hour meter on my '06 worked. I'm not sure if the newer machines are different, but can't imagine why they would change that.

If your dealer is telling you this kind of bs I would find a new dealer, and a new Ranger. I would not want a new one that had idled that much.
