    No lemon law applies to sport vehicles,atv,utv,dirt bikes,boats,etc already checked,and yes I will be demanding compensation or I will send the wife to Arctic Cat corporate lol she is not happy at all.If engine does not fix it I just want a refund not really interested in this model cat and not sure if I feel comfortable goin forward with Arctic Cat.I agree something drastic should have been done a long time ago I have been keeping track of the money and labor that has been put in this thing as of now it is in access of 15,000.00

    Got the call today they installed the new engine and they are saying they cant get it to misfire,but they had trouble getting it to do it before.Told me to come pick it up and ride it a couple weeks before they close the repair order.Looking for a little input or suggestions ive been advised to make a list of what I feel would be fair compensation any ideas? Take into consideration its been in shop since December and off and on 3 months prior.Also every payment that's been made its been in shop.Im thinking Arctic Cat gift card

    If you don't already have an extended warranty how about 3 years to show good faith?

    I hate to say this but you will be dealing with a new company now,,, I wonder what will happen now since Textron took over... I hope that everything will work out for you and also that it will run good as well...

    Real important to get the extended warrantee... but also very important to keep everything pretty much stock. Sometimes the work needed is approved over the phone but when the when the warrantee company comes out to the shop to look at the machine ... I've seen too many guys get screwed out of any warrantee work simply because of bigger wheels and tires. (regardless of what the problem is) The claims adjusters job is to find a way not to pay !!!!!!!!!!

    Warrantee company = Cornerstone

    Update on my ongoing problem,Got machine back from dealer with complete new engine sounds and runs totally different,But it has had a few lil glitches it has done the same thing as before twice in 25 miles and now it starts up then dies out. I have given up on hope that Arctic Cat can fix this thing mean while they are wanting me to bring it back in to the shop.Got to give Arctic Cat credit at first I was told by the dealership I purchased it from that Arctic Cat said I just have to live with it but that has been proven wrong they have made a very strong effort in trying to fix it.

    My trail has sputtered after running for a while, short rest, restart, sputter, let off gas, floor the gas, running fine again. My trail has done this ten times or so over the years, I have no idea why. I do know it always goes away quickly. I believe like others have said these things need to be ran not walked, keeps them in better shape, but hard on the joints, lol outlaw or atvnmor?

    Points, carburetors and 2 lousy wires ... very easy to diagnose and fix.

    Modern electronics and software -- not so much ...

    My home made (40 year old) turbo sand rail has only a couple switches, no fuses and no relays ... I feel more confident in making it back to camp in this old bugger:

    The first several months my 15 X it would run fine until I shut it off. If I started it back up after only a minute or two it would run fine for a few seconds and then sputter and stumble; sounded like it was running on one cylinder so I gassed it up and after a few seconds it would clean up and go without any more problems. Was told by many it was plugs or a stopped up fuel vent. Never changed the plugs and saw nothing wrong with the vent line. Has run perfectly for the past year without any similar issues. I liken it to a carburetor vehicle vapor lock.

    Knock on wood!

    Wow that really sucks!!! I do not understand why they do not just give you a new one and take yours back to figure it out while you can be enjoying what you are paying for... They should be making all your payments until all this BS is over and done with... Hell don't they have a warehouse filled with the new X with the new suspension that they AC aren't doing anything with,,, They should give you one of them for what you been going through... I understand that there can be problems with any of these sxs's but this has been going on long enough... Its time to take care of this customer and to do the right thing...
