Just got back from driving new HDX

Well, I could only drive it on the street so here we go Steering is too GM like ride is softer, Shifter on dash is great, 3 across seating is good, leg minders are great if you have small feet( big feet will have trouble fitting thru the opening). Seems to have a little quicker acceleration . Dont care for the cheap Duro tires Accept for the GM like steering I think Arctic Cat has made some Major improvements. Just my opinion.

Joe, from your sig your rig has to weigh a mint....so i would think acceleration etc would be alot diff on yours then then a new one..as for the "GM" comment...this coming from an "Buy American" guy? Was that degratory comment to an "american/canadian/mexican" company?

things that make u go hmmm....

Have you ever driven a Chevy Trailblazer? The steering is Darty and at 75 and 80 it is really bad not that the HDX will do 80 LOL! I may be buy American, but no offense Id rather eat worms than buy a Chevy! Also the HDX has stuff on it thet I dont have alot of safty stuff head guard side nets bigger box power steering. I think they may have changed the gearing?

And sometimes its not the product but the dealers that make a company look bad. When you buy something and when you have a problem and the dealer cant or wont fix it it make the product look bad too. I dont want to argue it just my opinion people have to buy what makes them happy not what makes me happy.
