2014 artic cat prowler dies when placed in gear... Help :(

We just purchased a new 2014 artic cat prowler xtx 700 today. Brought it home and it ran fine for approximately 3 miles. It started making a loud rattling noise then quit. It would not start back. Put it in neutral and it started but will now not go into any gear without dieing immediately. It also will not start in park. I am pretty disappointed. The prowler has about 20 miles on it is all and we didn't even have it home 20 min before it messed up. Any suggestions?

Welcome to the site, sorry for you misfortune, but stuff happens. I agree with Muddog on the clutch spring. Another one of those little parts that leave you stranded! Seems like all brands have issues! You have a great machine in a Prowler. Dealer should handle that in no time!

Thank you so much for the encouragement. I am in love with it already but still broken hearted. I really believe the dealer will fix it and we will be on the trails soon! I am sure it is something simple.

I've been riding the trails with mine for three years! I've had a couple of breakdowns, but they were all my fault! My Prowler has been very dependable, the wife and I usually ride by ourselves, so we have learned to trust our machine!

It's just me and my husband too. We had a Honda and have never broke down. This has scared me alittle but once we get the prowler on the trail and working again, I believe I will feel better about it.

One more question..I guess we are going to have to take it back to the dealership this week. If we can't get it to go in gear, how do you load it on a trailer? Just trying to figure out how to get it to the shop to get fixed.

Welcome to the site!

Does it have a winch installed? You could pull it on the trailer with that if you have one.

No winch yet. It didn't come with one and we just got it yesterday. We also cannot get it to go out of park now into neutral.
