All I can say is that I very happy with my 570. Plenty of power, extremely comfortable ride, flawless AWD and yes it starts and runs just fine, even in the cold. No issues whatsoever; I would buy again! Don't let the few whiners discourage you, the 570 is a solid machine. I'm still not convinced a large percent of 570 complaints are not related to operator error or operator induced. I'm sure there have been a few problems unrelated to the owner, it's not invincible, but if you use it as intended it will you'll be pleased. I'm sure the same could be said for the 550.
I too would go for the 570. Its a newer motor that uses all the current design improvements (dual overhead cams, direct injection, a cvt that actually works) Its very impressive.
I too have never had the cold start issue even when it drops below 0
Im not asking for the decision to be made for me. Im looking for Pros and Cons of each?, whats better on one than the other?, is one easier on maintenance than the other? Do you prefer the racks one on or the other?, does one fit into the bed of your truck better than the other? Does something need improved on one or the other, or both!? Etc, etc, etc.
I've got the 500, i know that body style, i know the maintenance. I know nothing about the 550.
