Thinking about buying a teryx

I am thinking about buying a teryx 2015 or 2016. I have looking at the teryx and the Honda pioneer but having a hard time making a choice. I will be working and playing with this machine and reliability is very important. As a previous owner of a 2009 Polaris rzr I had it 2 years and could not wait to get rid of it. I all but swore off sxs's all together something was always broke between bad bushings, ball joints, bearings, belts and random electrical issues.
Wondering if anyone has any feedback on them thank you
John

I cant speak to the newer model Teryxs' but I have a 2010 that I have really liked. Bought it used two years ago with 110 hours on it. Currently have 260 hours - but many of those in 4WD low range, never over 20-25mph. My terrain is very steep here so it gets a good work out every day and is my primary farm utility vehicle. I have not had any issues with it at all so far. I've changed oil a couple times, just replaced front and rear fluids and cleaned air filter. The biggest complaint I've had with it is the lack of power steering. If you are doing a lot of turning and tight maneuvering like I do power steering is a must. The only other issue is the engine braking on steep terrain. Not sure if there is anything wrong with mine but it will about jar your fillings out going down a long steep in low range - (constant jerking and bucking). I am getting ready to take it in to a dealer to have them check valves, and probably replace the drive belt and I'll see what they say about the jerking.

The 2015 and 2016 seem to all come with power steering thank you for your input. From what I read these are pretty reliable machines no one that has them seems to have many issues with them and that is a great thing.

Too early to conclude the reliability of these latest models but surely they are quiet nice SxS around. Should be hassle free if you follow all the scheduled maintenance and never abuse it.
