Is Depreciation that bad on our cats?

Hello, Fist time on the forums! I bought my Arctic Cat Prowler 700 XTX H1 in August of 2011. It was a left over from 2010 and was brand new. I had some HORRIBLE dealer problems (After a month of owning, sat at shop for over 4 months for service and replace seals). I was aggrivated with the guy and wanted to sale it back. Wow was I surprised. I financed 13,400.00 on my buggy (included 2 year warranty) 6 months later he offered me 6000.00 on it!

Since I bought it, I've added front and rear bump/brush gaurd, back seat, cloth roof, windshield, and 27" reptile radial tires. Also, The warrany is still good untill August of 2013. Am I crazy or is 6000 a slap in the face? I'm over the fact that the dealer has to make money and bla bla, and have reached out to craigslist trying to sale it, and still no luck. I owe 10,000 on it, and have had no hits, so obviously I'm thinking I just flat out owe too much. It has 30xx miles, and 200 hours now. I've kept it fully serviced and maintained since I bought it.

This is my first utv, so I'm honestly not sure if thats high mileage or hours, but I dont use this buggy for work/mud purposes. I use this with my family on my off time. I luckily live in a small area where the fuzz don't bother wasting time on utvs. So the river is 10miles north of me, the lake is 10 miles south, so every weekend we're riding to one or the other on pavement usually, or dirt roads.

The body is still in good shape, my son did back it up and hit the fender on the passenger side on a pole to the carport and cracked it, which I offered to pay to fix in my ads.

Does anyone have any numbers to throw at me at a more reasonable price? I want to keep this but unfortuanately i cant due to financial problems and needing a reliable vehicle for work now. Lots changed in life since I bought it.


So to sum it up, is anyone else facing similar circumstances? And, what is a good ballpark of what I have as far as selling it? I'm soooo dishearted right now. I love my buggy, its the best thing in the world to me, and I don't want to get rid of it but I HAVE to, and cant even sale it.

...I bought my 2010 700 XTX at auction for 7300 on ebay with only like 63 hrs on it from a local dealer 3 months ago and the dealership salesman advised me when I asked him if it was a good deal he said that he had it listed around 9 before the auction.

well that hurts lol. Did yours still have remaining warranty and accessories? 60 Hours is a lot less than 200 though.. I guess Im just going to have to find a way to pay more on the payments...

Whats anyone's opinions for 8000? Does that still seem to high to sell? Im just trying to get a general idea on what I may could borrow to pay down enough to get out from under.

I got 7500.00 cdn for mine on a trade in. I had a ton of stuff on it. Took most of it off and sold it separately. Made about 1300 bucks back. Ya resale value is not good on any off road toy. It was a 2010 prowler 1000 xtz. Another dealer offered me more but he wanted more for what I own now. one dealer wanted 15,600 and the other 17,800. ended up paying 4g's diff with both my trades. Now I own it free and clear.

Just wanted to give you a shout from the valley of the sun, great information. Much appreciated.
Meanwhile, I spend a lot of my spare time searching for the boat of my dreams. Multihulls have always been the focus of my attention; I like the look, the space, the stability, and the speed that they offer. I know itís going to get some scoffs, but the look and the open space is important to me. When youíre as young as I am attracting girls is still a pretty important part of life. Taking a girl back to a tiny cabin on a monohull surely wonít score any points, and if itís rocking back and forth thatís doubly so.

Sorry, can't say that I really have any brand loyalty. Only reason I picked up my AC was because it was broken and I got it cheaper. If I could have received a similar deal on a Rhino, Polaris, etc. I would have been all over it. And in many ways I wish I would have bought one of those only because there is a ton of add-ons that are readily available for those rigs. Not the case with the AC from what I've experienced. We have a local classifeds and I see deals on parts all the time for the other models, but good luck finding something for the AC. Sorry guys, just saying it how I see it....
