Maverick 1000 or RZR 1000

Need some input here from you guys. I have a 2014 Renegade 1000xxc and a 2014 Renegade 500 for my GF. I've really got the itch to buy a side by side. I love my gases, but I am on the fence with me side by side purchase. Does anyone have any real world experience on both machines? Which is more solidly built and reliable? Pros and cons of both? I understand that's a lot to ask, but I would greatly appreciate the input. Thank you in advance to anyone that takes the time to reply.

I have to think that Polaris Has this thing figured out as they have been in the Razr scene for many years now and all the improvements show up in their newest unit. I have no hard facts for you tho.

Funny you should ask this because a week ago tomorrow I was faced with same decision. I was looking to trade in my commander 1000 limited on either a xp 1000 or the maverick 1000 xrs. Went to my local dealer which carries both machines and indeed they only had 1 xp on the floor because they had sold all the other ones that came in before they were ever even put on the show floor. They had plenty of mavericks available so I went ahead and gave both machines a test drive. The maverick is a really nice machine that runs great and feels great on the inside, I definitely enjoyed driving it. With that being said when I got into the xp 1000 and took off it absolutely blew my mind. It is by far the nicest sxs that I have ever driven and for that matter ever even seen. I had never owned a polaris and have always been a can am fan owning the commander and also owning my outty 1000xt which I still have. Well needless to say I ended up bringing the xp home and I don't regret it one single bit. The xp 1000 is truly an amazing machine and I don't think you will be sorry If you purchase one.

As far as side by sides go, I have owned a RZR S, Aerocharged S, turboWeber S, XP900 and now a Maverick. As long as Polaris stays with the same old POS bearings and bushings you couldn't give me one. Every week it was something to replace, front left wheel bearing one week, rear brakes the next, right rear wheel bearing the next, front brakes the next, a-arm bushings the next..... It was never ending! I don't mind working on something every now and then but not EVERY WEEK!!! Besides, EVERYBODY i ride with that has or had Poo Poos have to add oil after almost every ride. They didn't when they were new but after a couple of thousand miles they did. I have ran the crap out of my Maverick and my 1000 Rene and the 3 other 800s I have sold. None of them EVER used oil and never had the wheel bearings go bad. The XP1000 uses the same POS wheel bearings that the XP900 does. That rules me out.

I personally do not like the rzrs they seem like they are cheaply made. I have yet to see one that doesn't make terrible noises when driven. They just seem like they cut too many corners when being designed. That being said I have yet to see the. Rzr1000 though.

This should make up your mind easy. I'm a little biased as I've never driven a Maverick, but this guy is insane and make me want one.
