I'm curious about this offering from Honda. Do any of you guys own one? If so, what can you tell me about them? I've got a Honda 4 wheeler and I've always been pleased with the reliability. Just don't know anyone who can give me first-hand experience and advice on the Honda side-by-side. Thanks!

man on my lease bought one. I have driven it. For the money it seemed worth it. I liked the back seat/fold down option. Decent power, handled fine. No rattles, etc. My ranger seems to be stronger, but then again, it cost more.

I have a ranger and wouldn't have anything else my 2c.........My friend has 2 hondas that he uses on a farm and a weld broke on the frame which caused the front arm assembly to contact the back of the fender, honda replaced the entire frame for free. There good machines his problem obviously was caused from operating over its capability. I believe there sound machines but prefer Polaris in a side X side and yes they cost more than the Honda.

I rode a friend's Pioneer and liked the configuration, but there are several YouTube videos by owners complaining of inadequate power at higher elevations.

We have a been exclusively a Honda family for years, and everybody on the lease runs Hondas.
Our lease provides us with a Honda Big Red for lease work and hunting use. That being said, I would never buy one. I would spend the extra money on a Ranger. The Honda just hasn't held up as well as the ATV's, is rough, loud, under powered, and always broken. It has been used hard, just like our ATV's, and probably has over 10,000 miles, but it just doesn't compare to their normal quality

Thanks for the input, guys. It sounds like there's definitely some differences between the ATV's and the SxS's, as far as confidence and reliability are concerned. That's exactly the info I was needing. I appreciate it!
