recommendation for RELIABLE 4 seater UTV

Recommended Posts

I have been asked to purchase a new 4 passenger UTV for my mother. This is used intermittently, mainly when visitors come, so reliability is a high priority.

Need to have 4 seats, a basic version, no bells/whistles necessary, no diesel, RELIABLE, prefer to have bed for carrying capacity. 

What is most reliable new 4 seater UTV available?

Each and every person will have a different opinion depending on what brands they have experienced.

I would recommend a Kawasaki. I have one, it's a tank.

The best thing to do is set a budget, and narrow every thing down.

A good sight for honest reviews is ATV.com

I will check out ATV.com, thanks.

We had a Kawasaki Mule, had unfortunate experience with reliability with it.

That's why reliability is a primary issue in this selection.

Thanks for website reference.

I still have a 95 Honda fourtrax 300 with God only knows how many hours and miles on it. Never had any real issues with ot. Never been inside the engine or transmission. Still runs and drives like the day it bought. I had a 2014 honda pioneer 700-4 that we absolutely loved. I had 1700 miles and about 300 hours on it when we sold it. It never once had an issue. Only sold it because we have 4 kids and needed a 6 seater. The guy that bought it from me asked why I was moving away from the Honda brand. I laughed and even though I had bought my new 6 seater 3 days prior, I told him if Honda came out with a 6 next week I would be trading for it. Also I'm not just a Honda fanboy lol. I know other brands make good products but as a 18 year mechanic I can vouch Honda reliability over all others. The pioneer may not win any races but it'll get you out there and back every single time. I've never been stranded in a Honda. You won't be replacing ball joints and wheel bearings every 2 months either. Probably never. Good luck in your purchase and enjoy!

      Everyone,
      I am looking for a 4 seat UTV that is inexpensive  -  that is designed for fun but also designed for some work when needed. I have narrowed it down to the following options:
      1: Can Am Commander
      2: Joyner Trooper
      3: Joyner Renegade.
      Can anyone tell me how I could sit in any of options 2-3? There are not many dealers in my area (York, PA) and I don't know anyone that owns one - I can't even find anyone trying to sell one. For me, this is a big deal because I am 6'2" and fitting in a UTV with out feeling cramped is already difficult - I have already ruled out the Polaris RZR, Polaris Ranger, Honda Talon, and Yamaha Wolverine. The Can Am Commander is my number one option at this point because I had the best driving position in it. I also felt a Yamaha YXZ was reasonably comfortable; however, they don't make a 4 seat version. Can anyone give me their perspective on how roomy the Joyners are compared to what I have already sat in?
      Where do you find enclosures for the Trooper and Renegade? I have seen people who post having them; however, I can't seem to find who makes them.
      Thanks!

      Everyone,
      My UTV purchase decision has been complicated by sitting in a Kawasaki Teryx 4 which adequately fits a tall person like me. As stated before, finding a UTV that can fit someone of my stature is difficult and the only one that can do it to date is the Can Am Commander -  the other option I am considering. Please note this vehicle will be used for some utility in addition to taking it out on trails. I am looking to spend between 10-15K on this vehicle.
      Question 1: Between the Commander and Teryx, which would you choose? The Teryx seems to be a little more capable on trails based on what I have researched. Some here will be quick to point out the locking front differential; but honestly, this doesn't bother me as the Torq Locker can be had for the Commander for around 400 dollars to help remedy this. Then there is the wheelbase. I have a friend who rides local trails here and says the shorter wheelbase is more important - he doesn't even think I should consider a four seater. Being a family man, having a 4 seater is very important as I don't have the money for two separate vehicles. I have researched what others have to say about wheelbase and this seems to be a personal preference. Yes - you get high centered with a longer wheelbase; however, a longer wheelbase can be an advantage when climbing a hill for example. Plenty of people ride these trails in RZR 4 and other such vehicles with long wheelbases. Then there is value. The Commander has better power, a better ride, a better price, better rear bed; and, the only place the Teryx 4 is superior is in build quality and off-road performance. I have limited experience on trails around here (Northeast US); so, I thought I would get some additional feedback here. For the money, which would you choose? Any opinion is appreciated based on what you have observed. As a side note, I have tried a Yamaha Wolverine and am too big for it.
      Question 2: I have only been able to sit in a 2 seat Commander as inventory is limited around where I live. I may have to order one brand new and have it shipped to a dealer. Having said that, those of you who have sat in a 4 seat Commander, how did you find the rear seats? I would prefer if the seats are able to fit a normal sized adult in comfort.
      Thanks for your help.

      Just purchased a 2020 Pro DX  with Yanmar diesel. Had a 2007  3010 Trans Diesel I traded in. My problem is that the new machine is so much noisier  than my old one.
      Has anyone had any luck in quieting down the noise? Sound proofing.?...changing the exhaust routing.?...the muffler? Any ideas or solutions would be appreciated.
