Rated 1 out of 5 by Matt94 from Terrible product Wish I had never bought it. It’s been to the shop twice since I bought it in April. It’s still currently in the shop where it has been sitting for the last month and one week. It won’t run and the mechanics and Polaris can’t seem to figure out what is wrong with it. Didn’t pay this much money for a piece of junk. I’ve missed so many rides that we’ve had scheduled this summer because of it being broke. When it gets out of the shop I am highly considering selling it and getting a new can am x3. I have 3 friends that we’re going to buy RZRs but they saw how well mine worked and all decided to buy something different. Polaris and my local dealer definitely need to make this situation right but I have very low confidence that will happen.

Rated 4 out of 5 by andashleyyoung from Great off-road vehicle but... Our 2019 RZR XP 1000 Dynamix White Lightning is awesome. But if you are wanting it to stay white... it's not going to happen. Our first pressure wash to get to mud off has destroyed most of the decals and paint... a problem we did not have with our first two RZRs. For the price we have paid for this new and improved RZR, I would expect a better paint and decal job. I will say I am impressed with the different suspensions, we especially like riding in sport for our typical trail rides but firm and comfort may get your friends and family who are worried about hitting bumps and feeling uncomfortable on one of these machines. Again, great machine, poor paint and decal job.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Clunker307 from Falling apart first two months we've had it now I bought this I believe 2 months ago and so far the clutch cover started rubbing. The first "real" ride I got to take it on was fun. Washed it with a garden hose and what do you know it wont stay running anymore. I dont think I even have 300 miles on it yet. I hate how all of the ECM wires are completely exposed to weather, mud, bushes, and debree. When it runs it's fun. Seems like it's going to be a shop queen. Hate to say this since I've only ever owned polaris. Even my sleds are polaris. I guess itll be a lesson learned if it keeps.falling apart....a real expensive one. Thanks Kole.

Rated 5 out of 5 by keithtva from fighter jet experience without the price tag Shopped for months and had to have ride command features, this bike is like riding a jet through the woods!! Great format for my build, ride command unit is impressive because it is a great balance of cutting edge tech, proven simplicity of naturally aspirated engine, excellent suspension and VALUE. From the tires up this unit is made to rip trails tracking with buddies or just cruise with wife in style. Low gear was perfect for the steep technical riding in the WV Mountains while having the maps displayed is awesome reassuring you are directionally correct. Keep up the great work Polaris, you have a customer for life!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Walkerl from Bad shocks and cylinder misfire I bought the RZR in May right before Mother’s Day. I thought what an awesome purchase to ride with our friends. The RZR only has about 1000 miles or hours on it. And the shocks have been messed up since the day we got it. But we have always had Polaris which have all been great. The dealership at mountain motorsports in Sevierville has had okay service. But will not fix the shocks because it doesn’t throw a code or engine light when we take it. Now today we replaced the belt and it will only run 60 mph to the floor and then bogs down to 50 mph. Unsure if it the clutch or what. Dealer is closed so we will be call tomorrow on 8/7/20. Hoping someone will help us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by James S from Love it! Few Complaints Though I bought this machine about 5 months ago. So far I like it. It almost has enough bottom end power to keep up with the turboed machines and it handles pretty well. My only complaint is that it seems to be made a little on the cheap side. For instance, the shocks aren't true dual rate springs. After a while, the top part of the spring with completely compress and won't spring back up. Secondly, I broke an axle climbing a sand hill. Shortly after I realized that my rear prop shaft was bent. I feel this shouldn't have happened and they should be built to hold up to nearly whatever that you throw at it. But overall, I'm happy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Smudget from Excellent Machine for Back Roads and Geocaching We bought the White Lightning because our S900 was getting to high mileage and we were concerned about having problems when in the outback of Arizona while Geocaching. Further, we wanted the active suspension for our tired backs as we travel over lots of rocky trails. The suspension proved great! We absolutely love the Ride Command/ GPS unit as it is very helpful during our Geocaching excursions. We loaded 500 caches into a USB memory stick, loaded them into the device and they all showed up in the map screen. Then selecting each one, the arrow helped direct us to the cache. This device was much easier to read than our old hand held GPS units.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RonB04 from GO ANYWHERE, GREAT FUN!! I purchased an one-seater RS1 RZR several months ago and I really enjoy it, but wanted to be able to share the fun with my family members and friends...so I purchased a two-seater XP 1000 RZR! I definitely appreciate the fact that RZR's are extremely fast with lots of horsepower, and will go practically anywhere--backroads, trails, rock climbing, mud bogging and everything in between, while at the same time keeping the occupants safe (with a roll cage, seat belts, etc.) and comfortable (with automotive-type seats, full suspension with huge travel capabilities, etc.). I love both my RZR's and look forward to many years and miles of fun in the future!
