Yeah I have heard mixed reviews about Polaris atvs as well. I so far have not had any major issues with any of my hondas, had 2 dirtbikes, and currently a honda 400ex atv. Great machines.
also have a í04 rancher. i have flipped it like 2 times since í08(we got it used) have put it on itís side like 6 times maybe more. i jump it and ride it balls to the wall. agin nothing bent and runs great.
