    Re: '18 Ranger on order

    It performs really well, and the heater is pretty good to a point, but........windshield cracked down the middle, cranks to roll the windows down are flimsy and one broke besides being kind of unhandy, and it seems like the freon all leaked out of the system. Interior is a little noisier than I expected. So far it goes into reverse every time without the occasional grinding like the 900. Had it's first oil change a few weeks ago. It starts up immediately even when the temperature is close to 20 below, unlike the 900.

    Hope you are enjoying it. I'm looking to upgrade this summer and interested in the same things.
    Still carries the Polaris traits by the sounds of it.. I'm on my 3rd Rzr and its a love/dislike relationship... None of them have ever left me stranded so thats a huge win and as long as you have the stereo cranked you can hide all those howls and growls that come from the drivetrain.. Like you've experienced, you can get a lot of life as long as you stay on top of the R&M.. The 2013 900 XP was the best of the 3..

    Yeah, if it got around -20F it wouldn't fire. We put a coolant heater on it so it could be plugged in.

    Agreed. They just need to step their game up a little to have a really good product and pay a little more attention to some quality control issues.

    They also made it so it's a little bit of a pain in the ass to check the oil now, because of a heat shield and the box doesn't raise up as far without pulling a pin.

    Any updates on your ranger 1000? Thinking about picking one up and coating against the Defender, rangers price is way better and better aftermarket support but a bit worried about reliability.
