No matter how good of a deal you think you’re getting, buying an ATV is a major purchase. While a plush suspension and powerful engine are important buying decisions, perhaps the greatest concern for an ATV buyer is reliability. So, which ATV manufacturer is the most reliable?

We figured nobody was more qualified to answer this question than you, the reader and ATV enthusiast.

Polaris sucks I have a 2015 etx and since last September it has been to the shop 6 times lost it for a total of 2 1/2 months coasted me 2000$ out of pocket not including what the company lost as well since I had to use something else that is slower service from my local and Polaris head office was horrible the only good place to deal with was more than two hrs away and had to leave the bike since they got a two week waiting period to get ur bike in but it was fixed right the first time so with all that being said never buying a Polaris ever again going to can am where I will have service and won’t have to bring the bike in cause they will come get it and bring it back

I have to put two votes in for honda and suzuki, had an 04 honda foreman 450 es was one of the most reliable machines i ever owned. Had 7,679 miles one it before i had to get rid ran great until i bored it over and had a friend of mine start it with no oil in it crank bearing went out in it 8 months later was too much to fix. Now i have a 2014 suzukj king quad 750 axi i love it. Has plenty of power can pull a good bit and is extremely reliable only thing ive changed on it is the oils, front brakes once and the air filter.

Why can’t there be a chart of problems per 100 vehicles per manufacturer? They have this chart for car manufactures.

My 1988 yamaha YFM225 is 29 yrs old and rides and operates as good today as it did when new. Batteries, tires and routine PM, is all its ever had. Beat that.
