In the Market for a UTV (with a few questions!)

I'm in the market for a UTV, Price is an issue as well as quality. Does anyone here have any REAL experience with these? Their facebook page and website show alot of great videos and pics. They seem pretty solid and their pricing is great. Thoughts? Comments??

http://www.odesutvs.com/

**Also, Service is an issue as well. does this company stand behind their product? Any issues with the company itself any of you have had? Thanks in advance!!

Re: In the Market for a UTV (with a few questions!)

Why would you spend 10 grand on chinese crap with "American Ingenuity" built in; when you could own a Riot for the same cash or the Turbo Riot, in the classified section, for a few grand more?
If you need 4wd a used RZR would fill the bill better than a new ODE.

I understand the lack of love for Chinese. To me (and I honestly dont know) whats the difference if it comes from China or Japan? Every UTV I see is either from Japan or China. You cant tell me the Riot has NOTHING from China on it.. Or the RZR for that matter. I just want an honest review. I have given up on buying american. The Toyota Camry is more Anerican than the Ford Mustang?! Do you personally know anyone that has had experiences with the Odes UTV?

So you understand the lack of love for the Chinese!! I believe that you really do not know the diference in a Vehicle made in Japan or China. The Chinese only produce knock offs of other products. They tend to copy things well, but the quality of all of the material used in their products is just plain crap. The Chinese, if you hadn't noticed is a Totalitarian Comunist society that ravages the environment and has little regard for the individual. Also if you had not noticed the Chinese goverment and economic policies are basically out to bury the American way of life and would like nothing better than having you indentured to them.....So you have given up on buying american. Then go ahead and buy that POS Utv you are so proud of and and ask for help on the Odes UTV forum. You sir are an Idiot!!!!!!

Re: In the Market for a UTV (with a few questions!)

Here's the deal "klemdotter" I stated I was unsure the difference between Japanese and Chinese products. So your explanation is appreciated. What's not appreciated is your "you sir are an idiot" imnever claimed pride in the odes utv, I am asking for real experiences with them you obviously have none and are most likely some looser that sits behind a keyboard and plays mr smart guy on forums like this.. As for me giving up on American, I meant (and I should of clarified it for you mr forum smart guy)I meant buying solely American. I'm betting you can thank the Chinese for the keyboard your hiding behind.. And your cell phone as well as your tv's, DVD players iPods, car stereos and electronics all the way down to medical equipment. What your answer now.. Why are those ok but a utv is different. The iPad I'm typing this on is made in china and I friggin love it! So who's the idiot? Any reply from you is not required nor desired! as I would hate for you to further support the Chinese by utilizing your computer.. I also don't have any faith in your ability to read as (if you reference my original post) I was asking for real reviews from people that have these or know someone that has, which obviously you have none..

Re: In the Market for a UTV (with a few questions!)

U are on the wrong forum......Klemdotter has more experence on the redline than most .. sure our machines have a few china parts but the vast amount of it is good ol USA made
we are proud of our machines you should see if the machine has a forum or call the dealer ans ask some of thier customers what they think
i am sure you will enjoy it till it breaks then good luck finding parts for it

Ok, I probably should not have called you an Idiot...But you should look at your comments about all the wonderfull Chinese products. First of all my TV is Vizio, engineered designed and produced in California by an American company, the HP computer is designed and developed by Hewlett Packard, also an American company located in Silcone Valley in California; but I will admit, probably assembled in China due to low labor costs. My cell phone is a Samsung, designed, engineered and manufactured in South Korea. Oh yeah and that IPad you love so much is designed engineered and manufactured by a fairly well known Amercan company "Apple", but you are probably correct is assembled in China, again due to low labor costs.
I really cannot think of anything I have or use that I should thank the Chinese for designing or manufacturing. Everybody knows that a lot of the eveyday crap we use is made in China, but only a fool would think that any of it is high quality, it's just cheep!!!!
I will take your comment about being a "looser hiding behind a keyboard" as being a tit for tat slam, as you obviously do not know me or have any clue as to what I do or what I am about....
If you are looking for anyone on this forum that has real life experience with that Chinese UTV you are thinking about buying good luck, cuz I doubt highly that you get any positive response. Maybe those guys over on the RZR forum or Arctic Cat Wildcat Forum have some info for you.
Good Luck with your search, I'm done.......

Re: In the Market for a UTV (with a few questions!)

I for one do have experience with Chinese made off road vehicles.
Not this one in particular but the off road buggies.
This is pretty much a direct copy of the Yamaha Rhino.
I'm sure it will do fine the first time or two out. If your nice to it.
If you run it hard like a Japanese product, your gonna have problems.
Mainly with the suspension & some engine part related mounting points.
Like stated above. Much lesser quality materials.
You will get bending, cracking, & breaking of arms, tie rods, & brackets.
Generally it will start costing you money in a very short time.
The buggy I worked on had the rear trailing arms twist, the radiator mount break & even the whip mount bent. Not to mention the fan was wired backwards! LOL
All in the first two days.
It was driven carefully (no jumps or whoops) just ripping around graded roads & the occasional dip here & there.

This is the car.

Looks quality enough.... Not!

Here's on of the arms after we got new replacements & plated them up & re powder coated them.

Sorry no bent arm pics. It's not my car.
Attachment 1727
Attachment 1728
It sure helped in handling (no more flex) & made it beefy enough to hammer on.
The owner (my nephew) said it drives much better now with just the arms reinforced.

Looks can surly be deceiving & price doesn't always represent quality.
Based on your question, that's why your asking.

I hope this helps in your decision.
Remember. With any "vehicle" made in China your gonna put some money in it. Most likely more than what a good Polaris XP would cost you, buying this one you mentioned, to get it in a working condition that warrants keeping it.
You will also be limited, if any, in upgrades & after market support.
To me it just doesn't make sense to buy this one when so many other, better quality, products are available.
