Repo'd RZR

Hi everyone. I'm new to the forums and new to RZR's in general. I have a few questions for your guys/girls.

Recently a 2008 RZR was repo'd down the street from where I work. You can tell its had a very rough life and needs a lot of work. However, I fell in love when I drove it today and want to buy it. From looking at it I think it will need new front and rear axles, possible engine and transmission work. It was making noises when I drove it.

Attached are photos of it. What kind of numbers am I looking at to fix it and what would you guys pay for this. Thanks

Re: Repo'd RZR

Welcome to the forum.

Doesnt appear like the thing was kept a day inside. LOL.

Im thinkin like 3500 or less.

There are plenty of nice 08 Rzrs in good shape for the 7000-7500 range. Sometimes even less.

There are expensive parts that need replacing there, and thats hoping the motor is good.

If you need a motor rebuild, tranny rebuild, tires, seats, axles, steering rack, ball joints, etc you might as well forget it.

You would have more than its worth into it.

Could be a good buy. But buyer beware!! Be prepared to do a lot of work yourself!

Re: Repo'd RZR

It would have to be very cheap to be worth it.. You can buy a 08 RZR in good shape for around 6500-7k. So to buy one that needs 800 bucks worth of axles and who knows what else it would have to be dirt cheap for me. The fact how dirty it is and that it has snorkels would also scare me.. Its probably been waste deep in mud often.. Which means it will probably at the least need all new bushings bearings, tie rod ends, ball joints. LoL honestly after looking at the pictures I don't think I'd buy it at almost any price. Maybe a couple grand.. I would be amazed if it doesn't need the motor rebuilt. It looks like it hasn't had one ounce of maintenance done to it in years. The front diff for one is 1200 bucks alone. If its been ran in deep mud and never had the proper fluid changes all that stuff is junk now..I mean hell it doesn't even have a knob on the shifter... I'm sure it was a repo cause the guy owed more on it then it was worth so he said F it and let it go back..

Isn't is it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do "practice"?
Why do we drive on the parkway and park in the driveway?
Problem with political Jokes is,, they get elected..

Re: Repo'd RZR

He's asking $2500 for it which I think is too high. I was thinking somewhere in the $500-$1000 range.

Re: Repo'd RZR

That thing is a junk pile. It's not worth 16 cents. Don't fool yourself, whoever owned that thing was a complete animal. And he forgot to make the payments. You will spend more fixing it up just to make it down the first trail then it is worth. Run away!!
Go look for one that has been well maintained, and you will enjoy the sport rather than despise it!

Re: Repo'd RZR

yah, I would take the money you wanted to spend on that, plus whatever you had to spend on parts, and put that towards a nice used unit. there are plenty out there, a lot of us actually care about our machines, and you can find one that has been well taken care of for a decent price. avoid this machine.

P.S. if you fell in love driving that one, imagine how nice one that has been taken care of would feel!

Their it is.
Looks like a lot of headaches.
That model had/has a weak transmission,, the guy probably never changed the oil or checked levels in anything.
They had enough issues already without getting a hungry heap.

Re: Repo'd RZR

BTW if you want to save on a RZR and don't mind turning a wrench. I would look for a wrecked one.. You would be much better off. Those are in much better shape over all. Half the time they are low hour machines that were garage kept.. They might just need a frame some suspension parts and some plastics. Which is much less then a machine that has been sitting out side for 5 years and just been abused the whole time..

Isn't is it a bit unnerving that doctors call what they do "practice"?
