Default Recommend A Quad

I was thinking of getting a quad and I was wondering what the people here would recommend.

I'm between 6'3" - 6'4" and weigh about 210 pounds. I don't have much experience with quads, but I do have experience with dirt-bikes (not the same thing I know, but the point is that I've been on something that goes fast in the dirt and forests).

I'd like to buy American-made if possible. Thanks.

I have had good luck with my Suzuki Kingquad 06 model. Good luck with your search.

Polaris is pretty much American made. I owned a Polaris once and will never own another one.Granted Honda is Japanese I think most of them are made in the states now.I went with a Honda this last time and don't have any regrets. I have the 06 TRX680 and the wife has a 06 350 Rancher ES with zero problems.

I am a hard working American and I buy American whenever possible AND practical! But I do demand a little value for my money! So, I am sorry but my money goes to Honda! Honda, with Yamaha, and Kawasaki close behind.
Buy a Polaris and you'll buy two or three of them before you can wear out one Honda!

Guess I'm in the minority but I have a 99 Polaris Xplorer 400 4x4 that has served me well thus far.

I have a Honda rubicon & the best thing about a Honda is what do you do about a dead battery? Simple, Hondas have a pull start so you can always get it started.
