This is why I suggest that you contact Kubota, and also the financial institution that the financing is going to be written through.
He needs to read it himself, first. There might be a very plainly spelled out escape clause for the dealer that leaves the OP without a leg to stand on. No sense getting everybody riled up for nothing.
And if he needs to go that way, he's better off having a lawyer confirm he's in the right before he makes that first contact. That way he can say, "I have consulted with my attorney, and my attorney has advised me that you are in breach of contract. Here's what you have to do to stay out of hot water."
All politely, all civilly. No rants, no raves, no insults, no name-calling. And with a lawyer's name behind it.
Velvet glove, iron fist.
That dealer is willing to go to war over 9 grand. Bet on it. Best to have your magazines loaded before you fire the first shot.
Back in the 80s, a local Chevy dealer ran a coupon campaign in the local newspaper. It said it was good for some significant amount toward the purchase of a new Chevy. A woman read the coupon carefully. Then she paid for a consultation with a lawyer. Then she bought some newspapers, took the lawyer with her (paying him for his time), and showed up at the Chevy dealer. When they got the price settled and they asked how she wanted to finance it, she presented enough coupons to pay for the car. They laughed. She lawyered.
She drove home a new Chevy.
