I'm looking at possibly purchasing a new Polaris Ranger UTV vehicle 540 or the 900. Never purchased one before question is can or is it possible to will and deal with dealers like you do when purchasing a new truck / car? I'm in the Fort Worth area and am looking at purchasing sometime between February and April after I get my credit cards payed off . Any suggestions on dealers to use or not use

I went to Jones Powersports in Durant. For me it was worth the drive across the border. Saved $$$$$$$

If you buy last years model you can get a better deal, but the newest coolest machine and I doubt they'll budge.

Agreed.

I worked at one of the larger motorcycle dealerships in Texas for a couple of years but worked back in the parts department. They sold Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha, Polaris, and Honda. You can wheel and deal with them some, and they will have more wiggle room than you might think. The key is finding a good salesman that wants to work with you, just like at a car dealership.

If the dealership has any last years models on the floor and the new models are starting to roll out, they will be willing to really give you a deal on last years model. Don't expect to get 10k off the price, but it will be a pretty good chunk of change. The last dirt bike I purchased was in June 2011 when the 2012 models were just coming out. Sure, the 2012 was a sweet bike and was a completely different machine, but they sold me a 2011 for 4,000 less than a 2012.

There can be a big difference in price just between dealers in the same town. Or at least that is how it is here in Abilene.

Polaris is the only manufacturer that I would not recommend.

Quality issues. At one time, Polaris didn't offer extended warranties on their products. Dealers hid the fact by offering warranties from third-party sources. While I never buy extended warranties, it's a good sign that expected reliability is not good when the manufacturer doesn't offer them. Polaris is a snowmobile manufacturer that got into the ATV/UTV business after seeing the success of the traditional motorcycle makers. Quality has reportedly improved over time. They also became very popular with the younger crowd when they focused on making more sporty quads while the others were still heavy into utility models.

There's a little wiggle room. I have found that it's easier to get them to add things like a winch or gun boots than it is to come off the price.

I wouldn't take anything, or buy anything from Jones! I do have a Polaris and love it, I had a Kawasaki Mule and loved it, wore it out.
