BINGO!maybe that's why Polaris are so cheap?
I think Honda and Deere? have 1 year warrenty on their stuff.
Polaris warranty is basically worthless!!
And as you can tell just by reading this thread, it's working. Great marketing scheme. It doesn't take much reading over on the Can Am forum to figure out that their warranty coverage is no better than Polaris when it comes to getting repairs done under warranty. Right or wrong, it seems to just be the nature of ATV warranties. At least Polaris gives you the option of paying for those three years of coverage, it's not just added to the price of the machine.Bob, these guys are missing the big picture. For the extra thousands $$$ that Can AM charges they should have a 10 year warranty....No thanks! I'll just keep my Polaris and my money and repair it myself, or if your so inclined, buy an extended warranty for your Polaris.
It's all just marketing hype to make you THINK your getting something for free when in fact your paying through the nose for it.
My '05 Rubicon had a 1 year warranty! Not sure what the difference could be, besides location.I would like to see at least a 1 year warranty.... This would allow for complete break in on all machines, and also allow for the machine to see all 4 of the seasons (climates / temperatures) of the year. Polaris is based in Minnesota and see's the seasons change and daily temperature swings and "knows"!! That's why I bought mine when I did (Late Fall)..... just enough time to break it in before snow, and I thought nothing would get an issue to show up faster than "cold weather and work/plowing"!!
All though, I'll have to say..... 6 months is better then the "No Warranty" I got with my first or past two Honda's, don't recall 100%. But I know the 2000 didn't have a warranty & I don't recall if the 2005 did or not, but thinking No!
As stated.... 3 year warranty would be awesome (at least cover repairs while it's under financing). But it would come at an up front fee!! Maybe just the extended plans are best, and Polaris may already have this one figured out!! But for Can-Am it's a sure fire way to win over some of the market!!
