Could you possibly do a report on reliability of sled made by different manufacturers.
I’ve had too many seasons ruined by blown engines. My first one being the notorious MachZ.
I feel manufacturers like Yamaha should be given credit for building a better product in terms of getting you back home.
Perhaps reports of repairs and recalls needed by different manufacturers would be good.
Thanks for your email!
You pose an interesting question and one which is difficult to cover. We hear from literally hundreds of customers of all brands each season and many of the comments revolve around reliability/durability/warranty issues.
From our perspective each OE has had their share of problematic engines, drivelines and chassis.
Yes, Yamaha has a very good reliability record and in your case – BRP’s situation has improved pretty substantially since the days of your Mach 1.
We attempt to quantify the experience we have with each sled and OEM’s record of reliability in our test reports.
Often times though the problems readers experience are completely different from what we see.
We’ll continue to quantify this important criteria in upcoming test rides and test reports in Supertrax and on Snowtrax TV.
