I am looking at purchasing a 2015 Mule FXT. Can any of you that own one give me some feedback?

I am not interested in Polaris, Yamaha, etc mainly bc their warranties are 6 months to 1 year compared to the Kawasaki 3 year warranty.

Most are experiencing really bad front end problems. If they haven't yet they will soon enough. Buddy bought one and he only had 3 hours on it when front end went bad. Kawasaki is selling them to the public knowing they have serious issues with the design is what I am hearing. I also think the 3 yr warranty is to cover this mess they have now IMO.

I bought a pro fxt le 2 months ago. We have 13.5 hrs with 59 miles on it so far. We love it rides good and is long on power. My wife wanted it for the doors and 6 seatbelt so the grandbabies don't fall out. The led & hid lights on the front are extremely bright. I pulled the trailer around with it moving stands and filling feeders with no problems even in the rain we had last month. The four wheel drive and the locker in the front works real well and it seems really stable even at top speed. It shuts off at 45mph and pulls hard all the way to the top. The wife says it's a lot more fun to drive then our old trans mule or my 610xc. She's right it's a lot of fun to drive.
I went to High School with Phil over at Sammy Whites Kawasaki in Irving and have been buying atv's and dirt bikes from him for over 30 years he has never steered me wrong on any and all ways given me the best price. The only thing I don't buy from him is street bikes.

Their 3 year warranty is to continue their tradition of having the best warranty in the business... That's nothing new.

While they've never been the fastest, smoothest, or most sporty UTV, Kawasaki has long been the most durable, longest lasting UTV in the industry.. Show me an 11 or 12 year old Polaris that sells for 60-70% of what it was new.. It doesn't happen. Kawasaki Mules do it everyday

I have ran Mules and Rangers over the past 11 years so I know the good and the bad in both. The new Mule is nothing like the old ones in the fact they have a flaw in the front end and still decided to send it to the market with it. cheers
