I have had my atv for 4 years and enjoy it it a great deal. I have had a few problems such as jamming of shifter and unable to get out of gear, a parasitic draw that keeps killing my batteries and steering that is very heavy compared to other atvs. The new POLARIS atvs have much nicer steering than the 2000.
I can climb anything and am very satisfied with the durability of the design. I do have a problem with water collecting in the recoil case which rusts the starter despite having the recoil firmly over the opening for the rope. This ATV is the only one with a nice high light which is great when you are plowing snow. All the others have them low and thus you can't see when the plow is elevated. The body is durable as can be. I know, I have rolled it a couple of times. It is a heavy machine however and difficult to get off your body when it lands on you. The ride is awsome, especially for me as a paraplegic in need of a more tame ride. A solid axle ride will kill me. I have done rides of 200 plus miles and felt good after to get an idea of how good the ride is.
I wish Polaris made this without a belt so that driving through deep (to the seat) water doesn't become a very slow adventure. So far I have gotten out of the rivers, but the wet belt made that quite the challenge. Good thing there wasn't a steep bankon the other side.
I recently purchased a new Polaris Sportsman 500. I have had many quads beforehand and am a very experience rider, but nothing prepared me for the power that this thing has. I blew a stock Yamaha Banshee, Yamaha Raptor, and Kawasaki KFX 700 in a sand drag by far. It mono's when you give it the slightest bit of fuel even though it is quite a heavy machine, and can out pull a tractor. I have never seen anything like it in my life, i needed more power so thats why i traded in my old Raptor for this beast, i am glad i done so. Highly recommended
