Re: Lost my drive belt yesterday on the RZR

I lost my drive belt yesterday on the RZR in the middle of a 47 mile poker run.  I hope this won't become an issue with rzr's like in the past with some polaris's.

Just dropped it off to have it looked at by polaris but they acted like polaris wouldn't do anything about it.  I will keep you all posted....

That sucks! Have you figured out what causes the failure? Did the dealer mention anything about why they think it happens?

No he said they have to look at it.  They had a huge poster with pictures of belts on the wall from Polaris saying what they would and wouldn't warranty.

The dealer didn’t say why other than it wasn’t covered on my warranty.  He said maybe it got wet.  They only charged me for 1 hour and the belt but said he had 4 hours in it removing pieces of belt from everywhere.

Re: Lost my drive belt yesterday on the RZR

Sorry to hear about your experience with your RZR.... and while with your daughter.

We bought our 1st Ranger 700XP in June ('07) and after 37 hours we broke a belt in the dunes, while cruising around with our 2yr old daughter. Although the belt was covered under our warranty, they told us we have a groove on our clutch and that isn't covered. Even though we purchased the extended warranty (total waste of $$), neither Polaris nor the dealer will cover it.

We purchased our Ranger because it has the middle seat and it's great for our daughters car seat. We are totally disappointed with the Ranger though as it's going to cost us $650 for our dealer to replace the non-warrantied clutch. Yeah, once it's fixed it's up for sale. There is no way on earth we are going to be wasting $650 every 35-40 hours of trail and dune cruising with our daughter.

We're totally disappointed with the quality of Polaris and the fact that they don't stand behind their product. We have been in contact with both our dealer and Polaris since it broke (11/11/07) and neither one of them care that the Ranger can't last 37 hours. Hey, they made the sale, they got their money. Who cares if they have another un-happy customer, right?

We have no problem spreading the word. We've even contacted Polaris Insider at escape@polarisind.com to post our story, and to no surprise it's not posted. Just another example that they don't stand behind their product.
