Not so for me! I have had a problem every time I ride my XP. The damm thing just keeps getting dirty. Rocks, mud, weeds, dirt and today even bird crap all over the front box. Now I have to wash it again. You think Polaris would have come up with a solution to this a long time ago!!!

My previous '09 550 was quite literally a POS. So far it seems the '12 550 that I recently picked up has had the majority of the issues resolved that the '09 had.

'12 550XP, Camo, Polaris 3500# winch, 66" Sno-Glide plow with Glacier 3 mount
'12 Sportsman 500, Polaris 2500# winch

I will be honest, I hate all the bashers too.. My old 800 only had operator error/abuse/maintenance issues and the 850 has been a beast... However, the 700 Carb I had was a POS!!!! That thing would blow both front upper cv boots on every ride and it sucked gas like I drink beer on weekends!! The other 500's I had were bullet proof!!!
