2013 850xp

Well looked at a new machine yesterday and they are trying to get me into a eps model, but after reading about all problems people are having I gonna stay with a non-eps again. How are these starting in cold and any other problems took look for on 2013 850xp?

The grease on my upper bushings on the steering column keeps coming off so when I turn it clicks pretty loudly but I just have to put more grease on the bushings.

I would love to hear about all these problems with EPS you guys are referring too. I follow this forum quite a lot and haven't seen any huge issues arise at all. To date I've only seen one thread where the unit fried from apparent water ingestion.
