A friend of mine worked at a dealer and he told me that they make very little if any money off the new sleds. Around here we usually get $800 to $1000 off MSR.(canadian dollars) I think they make most of their money selling parts and accessories.
I had a dealer quote me 7482 US on a '03 Renagade 800 RER. That's out the door with set-up and our 6% sales tax here in Michigan. List is Like $8,600. So there is definetly plenty of room for them. And this is from a dealer that doesn't push sleds much at all.
they make 17.5% with a 3% hold back. So a 8300.00 (msrp) sled will cost the dealer around 6900.00 but, they have to add 160.00 for freight from Valcourt and 75.00 for set-up cost. So in fact the dealer has around 7135.00 in that sled. The dealer doesnt make his money on the sled, he makes his money on the parts and services.....I used to be a dealer.
