Looking for a UTV

I'm looking for a used UTV for a decent price. I'm not crazy about the Polaris Ranger, I do like the RZR and Kawasaki Teryx a lot, though. But, the only thing I'm really seeing that's affordable and something I like are the rhinos. Are they any good? Found this on craigslist.

Are there any known reliability issues with the rhino?

that one looks good to me. i would stay away from the 450. i hear it is a little under powered. 660 is good.

here is a good rhino forum i am also on. http://www.rhinotalk.net/index.php

We have a rhino. It is sweet! Fast, powerful, and you can even use it for work. We actually bought it used with very low hours and has no problems. Get a rhino.

Have always been satisfied with the Rhino's we've had. They are good for playing and working. On the years you are looking at Yamaha had a safety recall and put those gay doors on which are cheap as shit, but you can remove. Also these years do not have efi, so if you are in high altitudes or very cold climates you may have a little difficulty starting it. You're also looking at the 660cc motor in these years, which there is nothing wrong with, but you might want to test drive first to make sure you are satisfied. Should top out around 38 if I recall... Also air intake is located in center console location which was annoying for some reason ha, can't remember exactly though

The rhino 700, 09 and up(think), they are the fuel injected ones, they are suppose to be much better than the 660s, which were still a good machine. My dad has a 2011 and it is great. It isnt super fast, it only does 43, where its governed at. It does get there in a decent hurry though. My dads has about 1500 miles on it and he hasnt had a single problem. I like the rhinos because they are very user friendly. They also have a ton of aftermarket stuff. I was looking at buying something new, and have decided on a rhino. I just have to wait until after I get married this June so the cash flow smooths out. My only complaint is they are kind of noisy. I have heard some others are a lot quieter in the cab.

x2. i think itís the best for work and play. we liked the RZR but we liked having a real bed for work. and to haul more gear. gas/food/drinks/ extra cloths in winter riding/

i would get a winch and nothing smaller than a 3í000 pound.

Ours came with a remote controlled wrench
But anyway, if you want a UTV for play and work, get a rhino. Preferably get a newer one. Like Skidooman said. Fuel injected. We have the red sport edition. Love it!

also something nice is you have 2wd/4wd/ 4wd and front diff lock. rear diff stays locked all the time does not really tear up grass at all if you go easy. and drives ok on the road.

Ya thats a plus about the doors I guess. I just never like them because we had the rhino before the whole door safety recall so it was annoying to jump over them. Plus the latches never seemed to work right so they'd always be swinging around ha

You have to slam the doors hard for them to latch. Or just jump over. Haha

Sorry to get off topic here, but Redfox, is your truck lifted? It kinda looks like it is, but doesn't. Looks good! And OP, I've answered your question. Get a rhino

Thanks for all the quick responses!

I have a friend that has broken every axle in his 660 Rhino (Running somewhat large tires on it, don't remember the size) and replaced them with gorilla axles and I think he might have broke one or two of those. He also said he wasn't driving it very hard when this happened. I hear this is a somewhat common problem?

If I had a little more cash to spend I would go with a Teryx or RZR. (RZR 4 is freakin sweet) BUT that's not the case.
