5 Hours on S4 and Shifter Broke
Shopped quite a bit before deciding on a 550 S4. We have just about 5 hours on it and have been loving it.
Until today, when the forward/reverse shifter broke off. (Of course it happens right when we need to use it a lot for picking rock and getting crop in the field.)
After doing some reading here, I see that others have had shifting issues, as well. I'm nervous that there are going to be greater transmission issues or other problems over time. I guess it's a good thing this issue shows up early so it can be fixed under warranty.
Crossing my fingers that fixing the shifter will be the end of it. If anyone has advice on what to look for/listen for going forward, please let me know.
Thanks to all who have posted - was helpful to read what others have experienced.
