The only problem with waiting is then extended warranty is issued through Polaris. Their not always easy to work with, they like to say, “that issue is normal wear and we do not cover it”
There's 2 sides to this coin. On side 1, what is actually covered is quite little. On side 2, what is covered (and not covered) is on the contract you sign. And it is very explicit. There is little room for interpretation, like any good contract should be. If you buy the extended coverage without knowing what is covered, there is little room for complaints. If they are in violation of contract, there is plenty of help out there from 47 different government agencies. Winning is trivial.
Here's what is on the actual contract, explaining what is excluded from the Polaris US Off Road extended warranties.
