They adjusted them free of charge this time. They basically told me that I was out of luck, the machine was out of warranty and that there was nothing they could do. A video was sent to them. But there was another issue. I will post the link when finished. This is coming from a heavy quaver from Canada. I going out quaking with all makes and models, from Can Am to Honda.
I don't beat my machine, I don't even have a winch on it! I had mud up to my knees and it kept on moving through it at a slow pace. Next trip out, first ride of the 4 day vacation, after 20 minutes of riding the engine dropped a valve into the cylinder. Anytime we see someone with one we go talk to them and the first thing we ask is if they've had any problems. The wheeler has been in the shop, Bass Pro, more than it has been ridden. Nothing but trouble from day one of purchase. In my opinion Arctic Cat is one of the best. It would do the same between L and E when in low.

We just made another purchase of a Honda and we are hoping this will be our brand. He has also been disappointed in the poor reliability of his unit.
We've warned them of the problems to come. After months and months the shop finally had the approval to replace the motor. They had to replace the disk brake, the arms, the rims and all axle components. Unfortunately I cannot give them a negative enough rating. Of course the side by side is in garage broke again.
Rad is clean, coolant full yet we are afraid to use it in case it blows up again. Belt broke because clutch was bad and dealer repaired but did not replace so the cost was on me. They told me to contact Arctic Cat which I tried but no one who could help returned my call. I had to again write to head office. Sounds to me like you knew the cheap piece the winch connects to would not be reliable. Nobody got hurt, but the company had little concern about the quality of the of the product they sell.
The dealer could tell exactly what happened and agreed that it is a very cheaply made, dangerous part to attach the winch which holds the plow up to. Am greatly disappointed in not only the product, but the response time on repairing a brand new sled. The cat only has 500 miles on it and now suffered a catastrophic failure valve dropped into engine. Since purchasing it, I kept it in my heated garage, did regular maintenance, and used it occasionally for transporting myself on my 5 acre residential property. I can understand there can be issues, but their reaction and resolution to the issue is unacceptable.
I will go and find another old pre 2008 and beat the crap out of it. I am stumped and not happy with the dealer's answers. This should be a recall from Arctic Cat. See the for more information. The next week the shift nut fell off and I had to hope it would make it to the truck.
Arctic Cat eventually gave me a free computer because it only had 300 miles on it and was not corroded. My buddy with the exact same cat had the engine case crack due to a starter issue. A few weeks ago my husband again attached the plow. Remember I told them upon dropping it off error code P119 with no necessity to test ride it for over an hour. My suggestion for anyone looking to buy a 4 wheeler is to look elsewhere. While it can haul utility or boat trailers, it is built for speed and performance. Yes, it's still going strong! I had my 500 buried in a swamp and it did not die.
Everything is triple sealed for water. Needless to say they didn't get a dime for this scam. I expressed my frustration because they had adjusted them only 250 miles ago and are now saying they needed adjusted again. The first time I took the cat in for service 100 miles due to front drive axle rubbing against the spring, I also had the valves adjusted due to the rear cylinder tapping much louder than the front cylinder. If you are unfortunate in dealing with them have a tape recorder running.
Overall I am very disappointed in the machine and anticipate upgrading to a Polaris in the near future. When you let off gas locks up big safety hazard. More than just a little disappointed with Arctic Cat. Took the cat back to the shop to address the reverse and 4wd issue at 350 miles. Arctic cat was doing a promotion for a 2 year extended warranty.
