I wrote a review for the 2008 model and said so far so good. My daughter's Quad is actually a 2010 model.
Any way this ATV has performed flawlessly, no carb or shifting problems at all. It`s not a power house but it rides great and is very stable for an IRS machine.
Also the steering is easy for a non-power steering quad. We have taken this ATV where we take the big ones with no problem. It`s made by Kymco for Arctic Cat, they did a great job on this ATV.
I do not care for the location of the air filter, more thought should have gone into the placement of that. We run non-ethanol fuel in all our ATV`s and treat it with Sea Foam, maybe that`s why we have no carb issues.
I have read reviews on this sight that some have had problems, we have had none. The stock tires were replaced, they do not work well in snow. Other than that, it's a great ATV.
Upgrades/Accessories: Itp studded mud and snow tires.
