I bought my 04 700 in 06 and had a trip that week end. This was my first Polaris and I wanted to take my time figuring things out. I didn't have that time so I took it to the dealer for a "looking over" and service. They charged me $389 to change the fluids. I about $#@! myself. When I grumbled the guy at the counter told me I should have bought a Honda. (they have the Honda dealership to) The next spring I changed the oil and checked the fluids in the transmission and front and rear. They were all low and filthy. I question now whether they even changed them that first time. I only had about 40 hours on it when I checked them.
Now I have had some good dealings with this dealer. This last summer I was in buying front Hillard oil and I decide to check the price of a new speedo because mine quit. The head mechanic happened to be out at the counter and he sent me home with a spare speedo they used for testing. I only ended up having to buy the sensor at the wheel. Ever since I always ask for him and he is very generous with his knowledge and tools. They are still very expensive ($100 hr) and I still question there overall loyalty to Polaris Brand but I don't really have a choice. 4 hour trip to the next closest dealer doesn't fit my schedule well.
