What you say may be true, but I see a LOT of 4 wheelers (Honda, Polaris, Yamaha, Suzuki, Can Am, etc..) having engines rebuilt with less than 5000 kms on them, suspension bearings, drive belts, cv joints, axles, tie rods, and ball joints, etc. going regualrly. I can't imagnine rebuilding an engine comes cheap. or a drive belt @ over $100 a pop. So it seems like most ATVs can be expensive to own, not just Argo.A-lways R-ough G-oing O-ut there.Expensive limited uses,very expensive to repair,parts costly labour worse.Hard to get at things that break and they wear out bearings,chains,tensioners etc real fast.If you use it alot expect $1500-$2000 in parts and labour per year.In my opinion anyone looking for a pleasure vehical argo isnt the one.
