    2019 900 xp Ranger

    So I posted on here awhile back about a 2019 900 ranger with a dusted motor due to no filter. Dealer fixed it but I'm looking at trading it off on a new 2019 Honda Pioneer 1000.

    What's some pros and cons about the Pioneer?

    From what I have read, the Honda wont be as fast as the Ranger and no box to haul stuff. Lower weight and tow rating on the Honda. Mechanical transmission can be costly to repair. Honda will need fewer repairs as long as the tranny holds up. Just my two cents worth, looked at the 500's and they were kinda pitifull in my opinion

    I have never driven one or even seen one that I can remember. Go drive one. Sometimes a simple drive will make or break a machine !

    The Pioneer jerks when it shifts, up and down. Some of them have gear whine. You have to mechanically shift into 4WD and then shift again to mechanically lock the front differential. They are hard to steer with the front locked in. That shifting is done by cables that get out of adjustment. Steam fills the cab when you go through water holes in cold weather. The optional cab and door system is 10 year old technology that doesn't seal up properly. You might need to seal it up to keep heat from the motor out of the cab. Sometimes they get water into the air intake under the hood and that ends up in the motor and transmission and Honda won't warrantee it so keep insurance to buy you another new one if that happens.
    They seem to have gotten the problem with the clutches burning up taken care of. They have plenty of power. The 4WD system locks in like a truck or Jeep system and some people like that better.
    Best thing is to personally check them out yourself to see if you like them.

    2017 Pioneer 1000-5 deluxe camo

    WOW old news here. I have 1500 issue free miles on my 2017 Pioneer. I love the thing. Lots of room. The 1000-5 has the fold down rear seats for lots of storage room for three in the front seat if needed fit 5 people in it without driving a school bus.. Or you can . It shifts very smooth after the first oil change. Plus no over heating from a plugged radiator and no belts to replace. Plus it's quieter than the rest. All the "old" issues have been addressed by Honda and fixed it needed to be. Most issues are being caused by abuse in my experience. I know of a few people that have them with out any issues as well. just my .02 ;)

    Pioneer 1000-5 Deluxe

    New to the site and just purchased my Pioneer 1000-5 D yesterday! So far I absolutely love it with only one exception - I wish I could adjust the pedals back to give me a tad more room. I’m 6’5” and the Honda Fit me the best. I’ve already looked over how to mod the pedals myself. Does anyone know if there is something out there that can do this? It is by far the most room/comfortable SxS that I have looked at. Look forward to meeting folks here and learning more about my new rig!

    Don't have a Pioneer but have 2019 Talon X and love it. It's a Honda what more can I say.
