    Just the opposite, these guys are in their 50's and 60's and are former motocross racers. Still insane!

    I have a 2008 Ranger I bought new. Its never been into a shop, although I have worked on it. Voltage regulator, and recently wear items like ball joints etc. On its second belt. Fuel gauge has quit too. It's had a hard life including getting sunk/hydro-locked twice. Have no idea on miles - maybe 4500. One main thing people don't do right is leave it in high range when pulling stumps or any other low speed/high torque job. Use low range or you'll smoke the belt.

    I found the Honda price tag pretty competitive vs all the other “name brands” discussed in this thread, although we were shopping for new since people seem mighty proud of their used UTV’s around here—plus, didn’t want to buy a problem from one of @ripline’s buddies ;) Seems any quality machine you buy new you’re looking at $15,000-$20,000 minimum, and then you get to start adding accessories... like, you know, a windshield.

    Your probably right, that just seemed like a crap load to me for a side by side, but I did not check prices on other. I do really like his pioneer.

    Didn't realize they had one, didn't see it on their website. That would make it a contender for the op.

    Man your not kidding. Their machines are hammered and they trade them every two or three years. Poor buyers will be getting a completely ruined machine!!

    You can buy a new Pioneer 700 for under 10k. You would be hard pressed to ever get me to buy a used SxS unless I knew the owner.

    Check out a Honda 700-4. Pretty ingenuous 4 seater/dump bed.
    I like a transmission vs belts.
