The dealership has been great, they offered to extend the original warranty until 2014 and then the extended warranty I purchased will go on top of that. The other 3 gators have not had the extensive issues as mine but unfortunate to say it's a rare occasion to have all three gators in our possession at the same time. Currently we have two out of the three at the dealership, one has a bent crank shaft due to belt snapping (just like mine) and the other has a problem with the engine running on all cylinders. I was just at the dealership yesterday (7-26-2012) and the shop had 5 825i's in being worked on one had a locked up front differential. The farm has had older diesel and gas gators which have never been in for service in there whole lifetime. Unfortunate to say we are seriously looking into the Polaris Ranger's abilities compared to the gators. Please keep me updated as to your experience with your new 825i gator, they are a great machine when they don't have any issues.
