I am a proud owner of a 2008 500 4x4 Arctic Cat. I'm getting tired of reading all these reviews online with people that know nothing about 4x4 ATV's. I go through the mud just like the rest of them. I have NO complaints AT ALL. I purchased my ATV new in 2008 and never had a problem with it. NEVER! I going out quaking with all makes and models, from Can Am to Honda. The only one that never makes it back with us is the Polaris. No matter what size.

I got a 1969 snowmobile and it was bought new. I don’t do any maintenance
I got a 1969 snowmobile and it was bought new. I don’t do any maintenance to other than filters and gas. Even when it sits several months a year, I jump on it and start it and go. I think it has a problem now. It’s faded from sitting out year long, the seats ripped, and the belts are worn bad it slips when floored and there are cracks in the hood from jumps. Also, one of the skis bent from hitting a tree when I was going through the woods for no reason! I want my money back, but they refuse to return it or fix it unless I pay them. Oh, my God. Really, what is the world coming to? I’m so distraught over this. I think I should sue them and get a new machine for free. After all, I took great care of this machine for years, checked it over good before every ride and never road it over 20 mph and stayed on nice groomed designated trails. It’s never been in the rain or snow and was cleaned after every ride.

Have owned my trail for 1.5 years. Have 1800 miles on it and have loved every ride with it. Mostly mountain trails and lots of snow rides. Rear a arm and anti sway bushings are the only thing I've replaced on it. Other than that I change oil add gas and go have fun. Dollar for dollar one of the best buys on the market.

Bought a new 2019 XF 8000 High Country snowmobile late January, 2019. It has an automated ECM controlled break in period which limits RPMs and injects extra oil, so no need for pre-mixing for break in. First tank of gas, and under 90 miles on the sled, the motor seized. Took it in to dealer and they determined the oil pump had failed. Called Arctic Cat Customer Care and told they can do nothing. Dealer went back and forth with them and they will replace the engine and oil pump, but will take 2 weeks to get a motor. This sled may not even see snow again this season. Am greatly disappointed in not only the product, but the response time on repairing a brand new sled. I'm sure they are enjoying the $12k they got. I will never again buy Arctic Cat products, and as a family with 4 snowmobiles, 2 side by sides, and 2 quads, that is saying something. I can understand there can be issues, but their reaction and resolution to the issue is unacceptable.

Purchased New 2017 Wildcat Sport 2 Crankshaft Bearing Failures. I purchased a new Arctic Cat Wildcat Sport 700 LTD for 22,830.52$ on May 2nd 2018 from Rockland Wheels in Rockland, Ontario, Canada. This machine had a 10 hour service completed at Snowmobiles Unlimited in Varney, Ontario Canada at 375 KM. At 1064 KM the engine seized which was caused by a failed crankshaft bearing, I took it back to Rockland Wheels. Rockland Wheels put a new engine and primary clutch in this machine on November 28th 2018. I was informed that the cause of failure was the wrong engine oil being used in the machine. I find this very peculiar as I have the receipts for the oil change and it was done at an Arctic Cat Dealer. I find it difficult to conclude that wrong engine oil was the cause. On July 25th 2019 I purchased 6 qts of oil and two oil filters from Snowmobiles Unlimited in Varney, Ontario, Canada and changed the oil myself at 1515 KMS.

I had 2 Arctic cats- 2005 500 FIS and 2007 700 FIS EFI. Both these machines were great. Here is why Arctic Cat almost always used Suzuki engines except for the Kawasaki 650 v2 that had overheating issues as well. That rear cylinder got hot on them so the majority were Suzuki single cylinder monsters of power and reliability. When 2008 rolled around they went with their own engines which are all complete junk. They were very stupid to get rid of the Suzukis. Why would you get rid of the workhorse of your fleet? I don't know but now they are selling junk and ruining their name. They need to go back to Suzuki and grovel at their feet to get the best engines ever made in my opinion and the opinion of so many others out there. I never had any issues with mine. Not a single one. I ran them hard too. Real hard. Never a whimper. Just a grunt off of a machine and go through anything and I mean anything. I had my 500 buried in a swamp and it did not die. I had mud up to my knees and it kept on moving through it at a slow pace. The low end torque of that engine was amazing. I will go and find another old pre 2008 and beat the crap out of it. If you want that motor go to Suzuki and get the King Quad. That is what I have. Same motors, same reliability, same fun, same 25 miles to the gallon but a smaller gas take. Only 4.5 gallons compared to the Arctic Cat at 6 gallons but hey who cares? Just find a gas station in the nowhere. I tell you the truth. Get a Suzuki engine. They make all the engines for Mercury Marine 10 - 135 horse. They make engines for snowmobiles for Arctic Cat, they make engines for just about anything that needs a motor and guess what? They don't die. PERIOD.

In November of 2014 I purchased a new Arctic Cat Bearcat 1100 snowmobile. Because of a lack of snow I did not get to use until mid January of 2015. On my first trip the track was very noisy, and the ride hard. I returned it to the dealer, and he found 2 bolts missing in the track assembly. This caused the machine to bottom out. A couple of short trips later the left hand handle grip stopped heating, and the starter stuck in. The next problem was the motor that drives the reverse gear burned out. Each of these trips required a 150 mile return trip to the dealer.

I've had many ATVs. I raced BMX Motocross boats. I repaired ATVs and put snorkel kits and clutch kits and lift kits on ATVs. As a robotics engineer and CNC programmer I know about the best ATV. The snorkel kit works great and the differential locks are the best and the motor is the strongest. Everything is triple sealed for water. The double bearings are genius. Very solid machine. I'm a very happy owner of my Arctic Cat Mud Pro 1000 special edition number 45.

Have bought 2 Arctic Cat(s) in past 15 years. One was a 500 4x4 and the other a 400 4x4. Gave older one to my cousin. (Yes, it's still going strong!). Have taken them on hunts, riding thru mud, sand, and hillsides. NEVER had ANY PROBLEMS!! Their endurance, strength to pull and go is WOW! Bought the extra seat that attaches for my son to go on hunt with me. I took him on his first hunt and boy did he have fun! Not only did we have a great ride thru the woods and hills, he killed his first deer! The Arctic Cat 4x4 400 (yes, 400) carried myself, my son and the 174 lbs. deer back to camp with ease!! Arctic Cat 4x4 Only ATV for me! Thanks Arctic CAT!!
