2011 XP EPS - Junk wiring
Traded in a 2009 Ranger 700 on a 2011 Ranger 800 EPS. What a MISTAKE.
Did OK for 3 months then the seat pins both broke and when you hit the brakes, me rear end and the seat slid forward and I plowed into the steering wheel, Wife plowed into the dashboard. Polaris replaced the seat under warranty.
At 4 days after warranty expiration, seat pins broke again and I come to find out they make a metal pin repair kit for the seats to fix the el-cheapo design seat. So, forked out $ 38 with shipping and fixed the poor designed seat myself.
11 days AW (after warranty), the engine started to miss right after running in mud or water a check engine code showed up. Called the Polaris dealer, gave code and was told the wiring harness is in suspect. Took it in (148 miles round trip) and they found frayed wiring form, quoting the Dealer, an assembly problem at the Factory where they don't secure the wires and they rub. $ 325.50 repair to fix quality issues.
28 days AW, engine developed a severe miss at RPM between idle and 3000 RPM and check engine light. Called in code and was told, short in wiring harness, bring in. Found a frayed wire in the harness shorting to ground, $ 385.25 and another 148 miles to fix quality issues.
44 days AW, engine quit like the key had been turned off then started normally. Picked up a surge in the engine during acceleration and check engine light. Called it in, told a short to ground in a sensor. This time, it took him all day to find the short, it was in the SAME wiring harness as before. $ 442 and another 148 miles to fix this junk machine.
I love the machine, power, ride handling but the quality of the electrical system is poor. The seats are built as cheap as possible.
It is a shame that the overall best UTV on the market has quality issues that have cost me money.
