Ready to buy

Hello all. My name is Bill and im new to this site. I was told to check you guys and gals out here for any questions I might have. Im in the process of purchasing the 09 prowler xtz model. Its currently in the shop for suspension problems as well as some type of gear wheel issue. I have been told by many people to look pass the prowler because of the many issues it hsa had. Please tell me if this is the side by side for me or not!!! I am suppose to pick the prowler up on saturday and the thought of buying something of this magnitude with issues like this is making me sick!!!

Welcome to the site, I have the 650 XT and love it. The XTZ has had a few growing pains but it is a really good machine. What your needs from a UTV?

I have a 2009 XTZ and love it. Just take care of it and like anymachine if you beat it up it will eventually break.

Please see other posts on issue. My thread Should I buy a 2009 or 2010 Model XTZ - a couple of the guys here are AC dealers and they gave me some great info. Youll need the longer 2010 jamnuts and updated waterpump seals
