Used ATV Buying Checklist
The all-terrain vehicle (ATV) or quad is one of the most popular vehicles for off-road recreation. Much cheaper than an off-road SUV and easier to handle than a dirt bike, ATV manufacturers have carved a piece of the market eager to experience off-roading in an inexpensive and exciting way.
Brand-new ATVs will set you back several thousand dollars, making a purchase of a used model highly appealing. Aside from price, another thing going in favor of buying a used ATV is the number of owners who underutilize their ATVs, creating opportunities for you to buy a near-perfect model for a fraction of the price.
To make the most out of a purchase, you need to know how to identify problems and potential causes for concern. ATVs have a few vehicle-specific things to look into, so if this is your very first purchase, we strongly advise following the checklist we have prepared in its entirety.
