    Any experiences with the can am defender? Looks like basically an equivalent of a polaris ranger?

    Proven motor and the new transaxle that's in the X3 , so beefy ..
    Great drive line , higher tech than the ranger.
    But it is but ugly X 2....
    I hear it is very capable though....

    I know the polaris general now comes in front and back seat arrangement but not sure if the back comes with a bench. If it does not that would not make sense as I am sure there are many people in your situation passenger wise.

    Re: Opinions of family SXS'

    I looked at the 4 seat General and I think that is exactly what I would need.... if it had a bench seat. We looked for aftermarket seats for the General but it doesn't look like there is one. I love that they still have a box as I use my Ranger for hauling, hunting etc. The sporty SXS would be a blast on the trail but I just don't see them very practical for around the yard, hunting or plowing snow.
    The Honda looks very practical for what I need, I really like that they don't have a belt (a pain when they get wet, and they wear).
    This is all my wifes fault... I was good with 2 kids... but lets just wait and see... then OOPPSS...

    Belts are not a issue as they seal very well now.

    I would not worry about the belt on any of the new units ,they work amazingly well nowadays ...
    A lot better in some respects than the Honda automatics ...
    The Honda has some neat ideas & but the seats in the back are horrible ..for a long day ...
    Very different machines ....
    Of all the four seat machines we ride with .. The most satisfied riders , seem to be riding Kawis ....imo

    Re: Opinions of family SXS'

    Arff, thanks for the pics, its nice to see them side by side.
    The salesman was telling me the same about the belts but my trust in everything they tell me is minimal... anything for a sale.
    I will take a look at the Kawi Teryx also. If I am considering a Honda or Kawi with the seat in the back, maybe I just need to upgrade the seat I have (get one that faces forward) and extend the roll cage.
    man, decisions, decisions...
    I would consider the Polaris RZR and get a bench back seat if I could find a good used one for a reasonable price but there sure doesn't seem to be many used ones. and then maybe keep the Ranger for hunting and use around the yard....
    Thanks guys, appreciate all the feedback and pics.

    Cheers,
    SS
