Looking for advice on first SxS

My wife and I are passively looking at SxS and Negotiated a 2018 900 S4 with 630 miles on it for $14,500. Not sure if that’s a good deal or not. Seems fair from my research. It’s got a road kit, extended doors, and an LED Light bar.

Is this a good purchase? We have 2 kids (11 and 7) so it’s more of a family vehicle also.

Re: Looking for advice on first SxS

Welcome to the forum ...I am usually hesitant to give advice on purchasing a RZR new or used . But for what it is worth ...I would strongly consider going with the XP 1000 platform as long as you do not need to stay at 60 inches wide. The XP 1000 is 64 not much... but big gains in suspension overall
76 hp is not much especially in a 4 seater loaded with the family and all the supporting gear needed for Kids The xp 1000 has 110 hp ...a little more fun for the driver and it is a more stable rig

You can get a nice xp 1000 used for around the same price ...Polaris released another rebate just today on the 2019 models

Good Luck

I wouldn’t recommend a 900 for a 4 seater. Move up to 1000 if you plan on having a 4 seater, you’ll appreciate the power when riding with full seats! Best of luck!

Re: Looking for advice on first SxS

I have a 2015 S900 2 seater. For a family, I'd say that's a great choice. My experience from following the different FB groups for the RZR (RZR KRAZY and others) is that I (extremely) rarely read of broken axles or shredded belts on the 75hp 900 motor-equipped RZR, and always read about broken parts on the XP1000 100hp machines. Will it be as fast as the XP1000, no. Will it be more reliable, yes.

SOLD!!! 2012 RZR 570, with most of the accessories.
Bought!!! 2015 RZR S900 Titanium! Let the fun begin (again)!!
XP1K wheels and tires. XB3 fire extinguisher, in cab. RAM-mounted Samsung Tab GPS. Larsonator DIY dual rate spring kit and Schmidty Racing resi end caps. Garage Products bushings. BugBuster mesh windscreen and rear mesh screen. Outerwears on R2C air filter and clutch intake. 3500# Winch, parking brake. Polaris DVR mirror & Drift Innovation action camera. PRP harnesses. Roof. DIY mud flaps. Tusk front bumper. UHMW A-arm guards. Hunterworks Gates Carbon belt.

A 4 seat XP 1000 is the length of a small bus
The 900 S4 would work fine for a family.

Lol, the XP4 1000 is only 8Ē longer

My vote would be an XP4 1000 as well, itís a big difference for a relatively small price jump

and itís worth getting a new one, you just never know what youíre getting with a used RZR, or why somebody else didnít want it.
