A lot of times you'll see only the posts where people have something go wrong and they fill up forums with questions and complaints. Personally, we're on our 3rd Can-Am and have only had minor issues with any of them. Same with Polaris machines we've had. Nothing major went wrong. There are a lot of people on forums who act like Godzilla has trampled their home with their wife and kids in it when they need to replace a bearing. Very few post about how much they are enjoying their machine and post pics of their travels.

Yes the v twins do run hot, but keeping the rad clean or doing a relocate seems to solve the issue. Granted cleaning the rad in the stock location is a bit problematic to say the least. As far as reliability goes, i've rode mine to hell and back and other then self inflicted wounds never any issues to report.

As far as the BRP bikes being un-reliable, yes, they are just as un-reliable as the next.
ALL bike manufacturers have their pros and cons, strong points and weak points.
Ford vs. Chevy? We all know Ford sucks, don't we?

I have had 3 Can Am 800s and just added a 4th recently. i have had very little problems with any of mine but i do keep up with maintenance and try to catch something before it fails a recks another part along with it.
i think most of the problems people talk about are things they should know before purchasing. like the heat, people MOAN about it knowing they run hot, its a big motor that people ride slow in 100 degree temps. it runs hot thanks to the EPA not Can Am, years ago can am had a wire mod for there sport bikes that richened up the fuel to help out the consumer, the epa found out recalled all the bikes built to be "repaired" and hit them with a huge fine.

I'v had 3 can ams,the first 2 never had many problems,but my new trail has had its problems.They are mostly parts that were missing or just thrown together.The dealer has been great at fixing them but they should be.The only problem is every i have a problem i have to drive 90 min to get there which cost me $70.
