Choosing a UTV should really come down to what you want from it. Do you want to haul a lot of stuff and use it for habitat work (a utility-type model), or do you want it for serious off-road use, or do you want a fast "sport" model?

We use ours as a utility vehicle, and for hauling four hunters, gear, and even a deer out. It isn't the fastest, nor the best off-roader, but it is (so far) bullet-proof (not a single problem after 4 years of hard use). We have one of the 4-passenger to 2-passenger conversion Mules (4010 Trans4x4 I believe).

Get one which serves your purpose.

My dad has a Bad Boy Buggie. You can switch it from electric to gas....whichever you want. He has back problems and can't get around like he used to, so my mom got him that. They are pricey though! Quiet and strong. We run the gas most all the time, but use the electric for deer and turkey season (or whenever we are sneaking around). It is very new, so I don't know about its longevity.

Very useful though and I will do my best to have a side by side in the future.

I have a rhino and brother in law has a ranger. Both great machines and its surprising where you can take them and what they'll do.

A friend of mine has one of those he bought for running sporting clays courses. Its not the sportiest looking thing, but for the price and practiblity, I don't think there's a better model out there. Seems like they really thought everything out from a "no wasted space" point of view...I really like how the back seat folds down and everything moves forward. Once you do that, you have more bed space than some small trucks!!

I've used them all and haven't seen any of them that are as versatile as the crew cab Polaris rangers!

I've used a bunch of Polaris Rangers. And although I like the way they drive and function (great off-roaders), I've experienced a LOT of reliability problems. Nothing major, just constant little problems that require fixing.
