Polaris made over a million Sportsman 500s and there are still lots of parts available for them for now, but it's 17 years old and sooner or later people will quit making parts for it. I like it but if I couldn't get him to budge on the price I don't think I would get it. Make sure you test ride it first and look it over if you do buy it.
Thanks for the feedback. I am going to drive it this weekend and will see about the price as well. It also comes with a winch and a plow.
