Just baught my 2021 and they now only come with 6 month warranty.. I still didn't buy the warrantyHad my current bike for a little over two years now (2019 bought in fall of 2018). It came with a 5 year BEST included as a buying incentive (or 300 bucks off - I took the warranty).
I haven't had a single problem and I ride a lot - zilch - but it's nice to have it there for almost 3 more years just in case...
What are you riding now?Bought my 570 in october 2017, sold it in november 2019. Two years I had it and put 3000 miles on it, had tranny, driveshaft, multiple seals and coolant leak issues. For me the extended warranty paid for itself multiple times over. I ride my machines hard but maintain them. A lot of guys only putt around and put a couple hundred miles on a year, but if I get another Can Am in the future no way I wouldn't get a extended warranty.
That really sucks. Did you try complaining to BRP corporate so that they force their hand into treating you well especially after you spend $20k there!?depends if u have good dealer service. Our dealer here in the Yukon has a terrible reputation for service. No way I purchase an extended warranty there with no other canadian dealer within 800 miles. Last summer I called them on something small to look at during my 6 month warranty on my 2020 6x6 and they said " sure, drop it off today and maybe in 3 to 4weeks we'll have a look at it..." I just spend over $ 20,000 and they would not even give me an opinion on a question (I was wondering about the seeping water pump/hose that catches small amounts of coolant since day one). Also I had terrible service by them on my 2006 Outlander 800 the one time I dropped it off there. Other owners have similar experiences. I used my money to purchase the special tools needed to fix pretty much anything mechanical for the 800 and that covers most jobs for the 6x6 as well.
What are you riding now?
I ended up getting a 2020 Brute force 750. I love it got about 1500 miles on it so far. Dont get me wrong I really liked my can am, and would def look at a 850 in the future. I just kinda got sick of being the one that had issues, 2017 must have been a bad year as all my buddies that bought 17s had a lot of issues too. My kids are still rocking gen1 400s though
