    Why buy new?

    What is the point of buying a brand new sled? Seems like every single failure on a snowmobile can be declared a wear item. Look at the fine print in your manual. Is there anything on a snowmobile that is NOT a wear item?

    I have got some stuff done on Polaris warranty.
    I think it's more about a) having the latest and greatest, and b) knowing it hasn't been abused and worn out by someone else.

    Iíve said this before. The joy of snow checking a sled is exciting. But. Itís not as exciting as buying a hold over sled that is also brand new and keeping $7-8k in my pocket. IMO

    7-8k less seems like a pretty big discount on a 1 year hold over, but if comparing a Doo X with 4 years to sp holdover with 1 year warranty is it even that much?

    Starting to feel the same way.Had a small oil leak/electrical fire on new sled. Dealership made me fill out 3 pages of useless paperwork and initially steered to no warranty repairs. I laughed and told manager that yeah I didn't feel like riding that day so tossed paper soaked in gas and lit a match. Asking me question on what lead to failure, told him I ain't a mechanic.I ride it, you fix it sounds about right with warranty.Picking it up tomorrow so will see the verdict.

    Re: Why buy new?

    My last sled was a one yr old trade in from guy who gets a new one every yr. Nothing but problems, not just one thing but multiple different issues. Will be the last used sled I buy as main machine. Next one will be a non current hold over. Can still find 17 axys for around 11k. That's a fair bit of fuel or extra goodies on a 5k price difference.
