    No problem, I'm sure some people have one on here and they will chime in durability and any other concerns you might have.

    no recalls on them yet.. I guess that's a good sign

    The engine mount breaks. This causes the drive belt to break prematurely. Source- I have a 2007 XP & Polaris won't admit to this problem.

    I know Polaris is bad with transmissions. The forks inside don't hold up very well. I use to own one. Lasted a little over year before the transmission went out and I didn't even run it hard or put it through to much. Just normal stuff. The engine also vibrates a lot causing the mounts to break as the above poster mentioned. That's my experience anyway. I have a few buddies who have had the same issues.

    yeah, I'd stay away from it. The transmissions are a PITA to work on. If you pay someone to do it it'll be pretty expensive. I'd keep looking around and bit the bullet to spend more on something nicer.
