Default Anybdoy ever deal with approval powersports in Sandusky?

Called on a sled that had just sold, but one of the salesman said they just took in a 2007 Rev that I want to go look at. It's 1.45 hours away, and I don't want to waste my time. They appear to be a large dealer, but their website is geared towards financing everybody which kind of makes me think its a shady place.

Any experiences?

One of my buddies works there durring the summers, they are shaddy as all dealers are. If you want to deal with someone honest there I can get you a name and number. I have been in the dealer a few times they have a few new items but mostly used and most of the used have been in some sort of accident. I have known a few people to call up there over the last few years and they always try to sell them as better than they are when they drive up there.

I'm sorry you mean the drug dealer at the liquor store wasn't a good guy?

Please let me know if you find another.

You might want something bigger for you, as you are not a medium like me.

The only ones I'm finding are the 2004's, and I'm avoiding those because of the fuel system and the rings. This is for the gf. not me.

I know it may be a bit of a drive for you but you may want to try Lakeside Motorsports in Mecosta, MI. They are generally very good to deal with and usually have some nice used sleds for sale. A friend of mine is the head mechanic there and he would tell you no differently on their customer service and sales. Most of their clientele are repeat customers and I know they have bought many dealerships out over the years. If I was in the market I would head there first.

There's also a few used ones here in the Grand Rapids area for sale on Craigslist.

I'm glad I read this because I was going to up there.

I ride a 07 sdi 600 mxz x package and I love it. She'll like it to.

Some people like those guys, and they are by far the best stocked doo dealer around, but after Al tried pulling a fast one on me, I will never go back there again. I'm spent some money in there too, especially on jet ski parts.

I was going to there only beacuse I can't stand going to the dealer close to me, K&W. Those guys are shady, I and some of my friends will never do business there again after what I went through. I guess I'll just stick with Burt Lake Marina.
