For whatever it’s worth…
I was in your boat @Belo not knowing which way to go. I loved the look of the Can-Am’s, but wanted reliability as we ride in extremely remote area’s of Maine. I researched as I saved my money for a few years. Can-Am has an extremely well made, reliable product, their fit, and finish is great. It was a no brainer for me to purchase our machine. I run it hard, 90mph floored, zero issues at 800 miles in.
I know a few people with Polaris Rangers, they love their machines. They do use them a lot, and zero issues as well.
I ordered our X3 Turbo R in February of this year, and finally received it in July. I suggest ordering a machine you really want, and a machine you also want, as long as the dealer will return your deposit. ASAP. I was able to order 2 machines, because I wasn’t sure on color.
I hear Can-Am is delivering mid spring for 2022’s, while others already have their 2022’s….it depends on what the machine has, certain availability of sensors are holding up the delivery of certain machines.
No matter what machine you buy, if its Can-Am or Polaris, break the drive belt in, and motor in according to the manufacturer spec. I also warm my motor up to operating temp before I drive, and I follow the maintenance schedule. I think you will be fine with either the Can-Am, or Polaris, that you have narrowed your needs down to.
I agree Honda is a reliable company, and I run Honda generators, etc, but in a UTV I respectfully pass.
Also, I always hear, I am sooo glad I went with a UTV…it seems everyone is pleasantly surprised after some seat time. They are big, but with plot work, I think you are better off, throwing chainsaws, axes, chains, straps, fuel cans, log rollers….it’s just more practical than an ATV.
it has also been an awesome hobby my wife, and I enjoy together. Priceless, imagine you, and your wife in the front, and your boys sitting in the bed….
Lastly, you can have good luck, and bad luck with any manufacturer.
