I had a new 99 recon my dad bought for me and ran it every single day and never the first problem out of it.

From years of riding, talking to plenty of customers about what machines they have owned, and seeing the types of issues that have come up on here with a variety of makes, models, and years, the Honda 300's and 350's seem to be the best for longevity and reliability. Will agree that proper maintenance and lack of abuse will give most machines a good life, but the 300's and the 350's seem to hold up under neglect as well.

Depends.

Honda's are reliable in the sense of, if you don't upgrade it and beat it, it will go 30,000 miles. Fact.


But other quads such as Polaris, or Kawasaki make a quad you can really get on, but it might only last 15,000 miles with really good care.

TRX300 personal favorite!
I remember the first one I saw was in 88/89. Buddy got it. Our community had TRX200, SX200, blaster, Lt125, Honda 125, 250x and 200SX. The 300 was best all around atv I'd ever saw.
But the toughest atv I ever saw was LT125 Suzuki. Would beat you to death. But you can't kill em. Got an 83 that still puts like a kitten.

1983 LT125 Suzuki
1998 TRX300FW Honda
1995 TRX300 Honda
1995 TRX300FW Honda

Suzuki 230 Shaft- next project!

What year did they make a blue 300? 89-90? I bought one new. The next model was the Orange 350, bought one new, late 90s. Those were as well built as the 86? 250 Big Red I owned. The 2008 Rancher has also been bulletproof. I haven't owned the 2015 Rubicon long enough yet, but seems the most capable, best riding Honda 4X4 yet.

2008 Honda Rancher, manual shift, Alum Rubicon (old style) wheels & tires. Warn R/T 2500,
2015 Rubicon, manual shift, 3500SR Terra Superwinch, Strongmade receiver hitch.
2018 Foreman, manual shift, 2500-S Warn Provantage.
