Posted On: 11/03/11
I bought a 2012 polaris 500 ho after 8 (eight) hours the axles have to be replaced.It has been at the dealership now for 7 (seven) days and they tell me today it could be two more weeks before they have the parts to repair it. i have this sick feeling i have purchased a polaris 500 P,O,S.WILL NOT MAKE THIS MISTAKE AGAIN.I wish i could get my money back and never look back. I hate to put down any mans ride exspecialy my own but they were aware of this problem and did not inform the public or offer a recall dose not sound like people i want to deal with ever again,and what other issues are they hiding.Its hard to enjoy your atv when you have to worry about it biting you in the hind quarters every time you sit on it.
