I've driven many different brands of vehicles. The cheaper brands, just feel cheap. That's just my opinion. I'd recommend buying a nice used vehicle, rather than a cheap new one. 

   You have to be honest about what its intended use is for. These can be very specialized machines. For example, a mud buggy, won't be very good at hauling wood. It'll work, but not well. 

   Bigger is better on these things. There's nothing wrong with the small ones, but the bigger ones hold more stuff. So unless you're wanting mud specific, or putting it in the back of a pickup...get a full size machine.

   Probably most important of all, is parts availability. Buying a recognized brand will be the best for this. 

  If I were buying a used machine, I'd look at a Polaris, or Kubota, for the bigger ones. Especially the Kubota diesel. And I'm definitely not a fan of computer controlled units. So older just makes sense to me.

Price range? Ideally, 6000.00 ish but if something nice comes along or great factory deals?

About 19 months back I researched UTV's myself, after 3 months of thorough research and much tire kicking and crawling up under around and thru I decided on a Kymco 450i UTV.  This machine has been awesome, trouble free, great reliability rating and used ones are very hard to find.  Factory service has been rated as extremely good and problems per 100 units manufactured are one of the lowest in the industry. Do yourself a favor and research the Kymco USA website and link the side x side area. Not a Chinese company but instead are made in Tiwain, they allow usa engineers and quality control into there country where Chinese do not.  Kymco also has a USA factory and parts supply and easy to get parts online or thru a dealer.  My local dealer was very cool, actually had an offroad track to test out the machines, with hills, mud, trees downed to climb over, just like a ride in the woods.

      I'm working on a Coleman UTV 400 that has a rough idle, owner has had it for about a year. When I say it has a rough idle, it doesn't have the continuous smooth running sound. At times you can hear it kinda skip, sputter, or like the RPM has fallen (RPM stay constant according to the gauge) It's not as bad as it was after I replaced the fuel filter and fuel injector (both are Chiki) not sure if that is a quality brand at this point. Checked the spark plug, it was a little foul, but not too bad. (Since the engine is still idling bad I'm going to replace that) Cleaned the throttle body making sure the carbon and soot has been removed, and the air-filter has been cleaned. New fuel is being used so it's not old or been standing. They did tell me that they were using non-ethanol fuel, not sure if that would be causing the issue. Next two things I can think of that maybe the issue is the O2 sensor or the valves need adjusting.
      Thoughts and suggestions? Thanks in advance.

      I have a 2022 500 Hisun product, I have had them in the past. I change my oil myself and trying to drain through the hole where I remove the plug is a mess.  How does everyone keep the belly pan clean during the oil and filter service?
