Canam Maverick or Wildcat X, which one and why? Reliability? Looking to buy one soon.


Recommended Posts

I just got a MAV.. Stupid power!.. love the thing... The wildcat looks a bit weird to me...I have seen Wildcats with suspension kits handle a little better on the whoops but it has to be modified. I hear in a side by side comparison the the MAV has better fit and finish but I have never seen a Wildcat in person... this is one of those things that your gonna get lovers and haters on both sides... Do yourself a favor.. Go to the dealership and climb all around both...

Thanks Myron. I have driven both in a small area and agree the Mav feels much more comfortable but the Cat brought a bigger grin to my face. The dealer had me hit a drainage ditch (probably about 2ft deep) coming from the street and heading into a field in the cat. It was very impressive. I felt more stable in the Cat and felt like for my style of driving I could be a little more daring in it. Both are great and it was hard to gauge power differences. Although the Mav was incredibly comfortable I opted to order the Cat. If I need to change out the seats its not that big a deal. Wish I could have them both but I know you can"t go wrong with either. Have fun and be safe.

      I purchased a new 2023 Landmaster UTV L4 in October of 2023.  UTV didn't seem to have as much power of the demo L4 that I drove but figured once it broke in it would be better.  After about a week the unit started bogging down backfiring and stopping.  Gas fumes really bad, wait a few minutes and it would start up again.  Brought it back to the dealer and after keeping it for a few weeks said he couldn't find anything wrong with it.  Got it back home and it started acting up again, brought it back to dealer a week later and he said he found couple things that might cause it to do run bad and he was able to replicate the issue but didn't really know what was wrong.  Got it back home again after being at dealer for several weeks and the unit started running bad again right away.  Brought it back to dealer and he went back and forth with Kohler about possible fixes but just checked somethings and try to swap a few parts but still runs bad.  I called Landmaster HQ to speak with someone about a refund and was told that was handled at the dealer level.  Dealer called Landmaster and they told him they didn't do refunds or exchanges especially with units that had problems.  The dealer is now trying to get a new engine to but I have not heard anything as of yet.  I did file complaint with Better Business Bureau and they accepted my claim and reached out to Landmaster.  The National Service Manager called me and said the he had been contacted by the BBB about the complaint and he would look into it.  I told him that I would just like to have my down payment of $2,000.00 returned and never mind the over $1,000.00 I have paid in notes for a UTV that I cannot even ride on without hoping it gets me around the neighborhood.  I have found out that the 2024 Landmaster UTVs will have Vanguard engines due to issues with the Kohler engines.  Very disappointed in what is "Proudly Made in the USA" and the way Landmaster has treated this disabled veteran!

      Going down a 20 deg hill engine is holding UTV back. Then something releases like going into Neutral and makes a loud clacking noise. Have to use brake to slow UTV down. Then once level it shifts back into gear. Have done shift extension does not pop out of gear.

      Don’t waste your time everybody with rpm motorsports, Omaha. They are people that don’t even work on sxs’s. Trying to tell you how to install things.
      Completely uneducated guy tried to tell me I did not install a mid pipe correctly when it won’t install correctly; that was the reason for the video and the complaint that I called him about.
      This mid pipe has a 1 inch gap at the rear, and the only way to close it up is with a longer bolt, and to stretch the flex at the Exhaust
      After one ride, the rear bolts have disappeared, because how much tension there is on the flex
      And the bolts does not line up at the flange
      Have a video before and after. And they are telling me that it’s my fault because it does not fit
      wtf.!
      What kind of idiotic people are even answering the phones these days.?
      This guy has probably only read a book and never even driven a motorcycle in his life
      Don’t waste your time with this bullshit products

      I have a 2023 4010 Mule TRANS that I've now had a year and just hit 50hrs.  I did my first service including oil change, trans & differential oil change.  I'd like to adjust my linkage (I suppose) as when I shift into gear, I get a good grab and clunk at least. It was grinding at one point and I tinkered with the linkage adjustments enough that its finally not grinding. Still, sometimes I worry that it's clunking too hard when I go into gear. 
       
      Looked on youtube and can't find any vids or advice there on the adjustment procedure. I'm STILL trying to find somewhere that has the service manual available. Even the company site is telling me that they hope to have them in stock by Christmas! 
       
      These are the two places I was trying to adjust. Are these even the correct ones? Does anyone know the difference in the two?
