I just went once to do some mudding and loved it.

Looking around and the only utv for 4 i could find in my price range was a joyner.

None of the people that were there had joyners. And when i asked why all they could say is that bc its chinese and not good.

Well none of them have ever owned one so how could they tell its junk?

So can anyone tell me if its worth buying a joyner or save more and buy a different utv?

Thank you

I've said this on other posts.  There is no perfect UTV.  Even brand name UTVs have issues with broken/overheated/burnedf belts, drive shafts, CV joints, etc. especially when driven beyond their capability.  I bought a used Joyner because 1) I pave my own roads, 2) I can't see spending $20k-$30k for a "pretty" UTV that I might ride a few times a year.  The early Joyners had quality control issues, but they've seem to have improved.  UTVs with CVTs are easier to drive.  The Joyners with the clutch and 5-speed transmissions require you to take an active role in managing power to the drive axles.  The John Deere 825i uses the same Chery engine (800cc) as the early Renegades.  One model of the Kawasaki also uses a Chery engine.  If the UTV has a gasoline engine (3-cyl 800cc or 4-cyl 1100cc), it just might be a Chery engine.  Those owners probably don't know it that they are driving Chinese "junk"..  The larger displacement Chery engines are relatively common in cars sold in Asia, Africa and South America.  In 2014, the Renegader has the 1100cc engine - same as their Trooper.  The Joyner and Troopers are wide machines (60in); you may be limited to where you can ride on narrow trails.  I did a search for UTV recalls.  Most brand name UTVs & ATVs have had safety recalls.  I couldn't find any recalls for Joyner Troopers or Renegades.  Maybe they just don't issue recalls whether needed or not.  Support for these UTVs however, may be difficult to find.  Dealerships aren't as wide spread as name brand UTVs.  I haven't experienced any issues with my UTV - yet.  I use mine as a means of transportation in the backwoods, not as a race car to jump over cliffs.

I was in the same position many years ago and purchased a slightly used T4 from a friend. Had about 1000 miles on it then, over 6000 on it now.
It’s been a great machine, replaced fuel filter once, wheel bearings and a few bushings over the years, but it’s been a very dependable machine and still is.
I have tags on it so it’s street legal. I always tease the RZR guys that I can take them back to their truck when they break and axle or belt...and I usually do

      Earlier this week — and after much anticipation — Lexus unveiled the new 2022 LX 600 SUV. It's a luxurious American version of the new Land Cruiser and shares a V6 powertrain with the new Toyota Tundra pickup. The LX wasn't a shock; it's just about the most characteristically "Lexus" vehicle one could imagine, except perhaps the LS sedan. But Lexus also released a different vehicle you would not have expected this week.
      At the end of the LX announcement video, Lexus teased a new mobility concept called the "Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle," or ROV. It's an all-terrain vehicle — or, as we will choose to interpret it, a supremely badass golf cart — that runs on a hydrogen combustion engine. Sadly, Lexus did not include an utterly superfluous spindle grille, although the shape of the front end will certainly remind you of that shape.



      An ATV makes perfect sense as a showcase for hydrogen combustion. One of the technology's most significant drawbacks for current production use is that it can't produce as much power as gasoline combustion engines with the same size engine footprint. So a low-speed wood path cruiser could get away with far less power than a recreational on-highway vehicle.

      Hello All,
       
       I am trying to find a Scanner that is works for a 2016 MSU500. I found the Tiny Scan TS301 that looks like a decent Scanner but so far have not been able to get confirmation that this works on and older model. It has been stated that it works on the 2019 and newer but not sure about older models. It appears that the ECM/ECU/EFI modules are likely interchangeable between a 2016 and the newer 2019 and on but not sure of the Scanner. I am waiting for feedback from Hisun on this issue right now.
       If this unit is not usable for my model year has anyone found and a Diagnostic Scanner for the older machines, one that works and is Affordable?
      Thanks for reading my post and any information that you may have to share,
      Robert

      Hello everyone.
      Here I am showing our Green Scout electric all-terrain vehicle.
      All-terrain vehicle 6 wheeled, electric, side-turning. Rides, jumps, dances, swims, but does not fly. The drive is permanent (but you can turn off any wheel arbitrarily through the controller). The power of each wheel is 3 kW at its peak, the total power is 18 kW. Speed up to 60 km / h. Since the all-terrain vehicle is electric, it starts from a place quickly, drives silently (well, of course, the sound from tires and shock absorbers does not disappear).
      The idea of creating such an all-terrain vehicle came after the experience of operating the Argo all-terrain vehicle. The main disadvantages of the wheeled side-turning all-terrain vehicle are low ground clearance, lack of suspension. To get high ground clearance and suspension, there are two outputs on mini all-terrain vehicles - either electric drive or hydraulic. The hydraulics had to be excluded, since at temperatures below -30C it does not work, plus it always flows. As a result, we settled on an electric transmission. Each wheel is a motor-wheel. Naturally, the motor-wheels were being finalized to be able to be installed on an all-terrain vehicle and to be able to swim. The battery is iron-phosphate, all information on the battery, the charge is displayed on the smartphone. Control of the all-terrain vehicle through the on-board computer. Bicycle handlebar controls. Braking either with the sides through a turn of the steering wheel, or with the gas pedal of all wheels at once.
