This is the first 4 wheeler that I have bought NEW. It was in my price range and had the features that I wanted. And despite the 350ci engine, it performs GOOD. Not great. Does lack the power in the middle of steep long climbs BUT it goes anywhere that the bigger ones go. And you can lock the front brake and dig a hole with the back. And it 4 wheel/diff lock, you can (with a little run at it) run up hills that make you feel like you are going to tip over backwards.
The only issue that scares me is the oil cooler. Now for the record mine has NEVER NEVER EVER overheated. But I wasn't unable to leave well enough alone and added an aftermarket fan to help the radiator stay cool. Now I can ride all day at 6,000 feet elevation in 104 degree temps and the oil stays cool.
Short of that, it is a great ride. It will NOT keep up with the big bores on level ground (mine tops out at 50 MPH) but it will go damn near everywhere (and the place it won't, I don't want to go) and not drink too much gas. OHHHH, that brings me to a highlight.
The fuel economy is AWESOME compared to a big bore. It will go FOREVER on a tank of gas where as a large one has to fill up 3 times before I do.
