2017 ariens says discontinued??? I need parts...

Picked up a "scratch and dent and the model label is missing but with a little research it seems it is a 2017 Deluxe 24 as it has the gray Ariens on the dash and I believe the 2016 had the orange Ariens oval there. Also I think the 2017 (sold in 2016) had the new wheel position to correct the issues with the auto turn. Model number for the 2017 is 921045 and being so new it seems so many places I have searched are saying no longer available???? Or discontinued???? On such a new model even on the ariens site I seen that. Below is a link to the model I think I have. Jacks has "We're sorry this item is no longer available." on most of the parts. Why so fast not being available or is it just a default on the parts site's if the parts might not "YET" be available. Never rebuilt one so new so part searching newer machines is a whole new game it seems.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

Ariens makes the same model for one, two or three years..then that *model* is discontinued..but that has nothing to do with parts availability..

My 1971 Ariens has been "discontinued" for almost half a century..I can still get parts. So "model discontinued" has zero relation to parts availaibility.

Thatís just it, 2017 model was the first year for the 921045 and many parts say discontinued. Just wondered why this one is hard on finding some parts and my 2005 ST1027LE has tons of parts.

Pick up the phone and call . . . that is almost certainly a mistake . . .
