extended warranty

Hi Guys,

Getting ready to buy a 850 XP EPS and was wondering what do you think about purchasing the extended warranty ?

Thanks,

BTH

If you plan to leave it stock, its well worth it. If you mod it, theyll void it before it runs out.

I too had this internal debate about the extended warranty. I didn't immediately purchase and found this forum and started to do some research. I ended up purchasing a 5 year warranty within the first month of ownership. Why? Well, I believe that an issue with the EPS or the EFI will probably make the warranty worthwhile. I can see a thousand dollars happening fast. I will probably put a couple thousand miles on my machine per year. So, I figured I'd go for it. I don't anticipate using it but will if I need to. I didn't like spending the money, but I also sleep better knowing it's there. It's a personal choice.

You don't have to buy the extended warranty at the time you buy the ATV you just need to buy it before the first 6 months runs out. I have till March to buy one on mine that I purchase in October. I have priced them and it seems the best deal is an additional 6 months can be bought for around $125.00. After that they get very expensive. My main concern is the price of that power steering motor is around $1000.00 one of them suckers would buy 5 years of extended warranty. If your new atv doesnt have power steering I think it would be less of an issue. I think I will buy and extra 6 months giving me 1 year total.

I like the comfort of an extended warranty, the key is to work out a deal you feel comfortable with. We put 5 year $/50 deductible warranties on ours, if you would average out the cost for $160 a year I think it's money well spent.

A four-wheeled adventure will soon bring you happiness.

Discount pricing

I found a dealer through the Rzr Forums that offers better pricing than my local dealer. I called them up and gave them my vin and they added the 5 year warranty on my 550XP right away. I saved almost $200 bucks!

Here is their pricing breakdown for the Polaris branded warranty on a 550xp:
12 month $465.00
24 month $520.00
36 month $635.00
48 month $725.00
60 month $820.00

Hi Guys,

Thanks for all the input. I am leaning to getting one does anyone have a copy of the extended warranty that I could read it to see what is covered.

Thanks again,

on the 850's if your spending 10000 what another 1000 for better sleep and the worries are gone other than having to fo without your atv for a week(worst part), god i hate that. never had many patience.. i guess it would be worth it.. I would rather spend the extra 150 for a polaris extended warranty, just for the case that another company might try and cut corners, polaris will have polaris parts....
