Im new to this need feedback if joyner is good

Recommended Posts

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

      Does anyone know if Joyner USA in Phoenix AZ is still in business.  Can't get onto their website.  The FB postings are over 1 year old.  Doesn't seem like the owner is interested in keeping customers interested or updated in what's going on.  Hasn't been at the Riverview address in a couple of years.  Last I knew, he was on S 18 St.  There's a website that says Joyner USA is at the 3700 block of E Roeser.  Don't know at the moment if it is the same business.  I bought a couple of wheels from him last year and I want to buy two more.

      Bought this machine a couple years ago and the gages didn’t work.  I have troubleshot this thing numerous times to no avail. Thought it may be a common ground so I individually grounded  the gages, didn’t work.  I have tested the sending units.  All have some resistance that changes as the engine revs or gets warmer.  Please help me.  Thanks in advance
