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.

Thank you, very helpful input. 

It echos my own research.

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!

      I purchased a Red Massimo Buck 400EFI recently from Massimo Motor.  It was very simple to purchase on line, it was quick and painless.  After placing my order, I got a call from the Massimo Motor Customer Service Department (Eddie).  He wanted to confirm my order and he let me know that they were building my UTV and gave me an estimated date of completing and delivery.  Upon completion of the unit, Eddie reached out to me to let me know that it would be shipping and that I should expect it within 7 business days of his call.  I actually received it 3 business days after his call.  The truck driver was very polite and helpful.  We got the UTV off the truck and away I went.  We have a small tree farm and we needed something that we could use to maintain our little farm with ease.  The Buck 400EFI performs as expected.  It runs really well; it looks good and the most important thing about it is that my wife loves it.
      A few days after receiving my UTV, Eddie from Massimo Customer Service called to make sure that we had received the UTV with no problems and to see if everything was OK with the unit.  He told me that if anything were to come up with the unit, to not hesitate to contact him and he would help us resolve any issue that may arise.
      I am very happy that I purchased this UTV from Massimo Motor and IF I had to do this again, I WOULD in a heartbeat.  Eddie at customer service is outstanding and because of him, I would recommend anyone who is interested in purchasing one of these UTV’s, to ask for him.  He will take good care of you.
      Very Happy Customer

      Found a hole in Front Diff case, its been there a while, gears look fine but bearings are all shot, 
      Is it more economical to just buy a complete differential or rebearing the current one
      Suggestions on where to Find one

      Need a new primary clutch.  Center shaft is scored so not really repairable (although I am going to see if my tool and die maker brother can make a replacement part but that'll take too long to be a replacement option.)
      Dealer price for replacement is over $750!  seems VERY high relative to clutch prices for other UTV's (more than double).
      is there a more reasonable alternate?
