I am looking for a new Honda Four-Wheeler and I was wondering what everyone's opinion is on what the best Years of Honda 500 Foreman's and Rubicon's was? I prefer a manual Foot shift just for the ruggedness and reliability. It will be used for farm use but for the most part will just be used to go check cows daily and carry a 25gallon sprayer for spot spraying through the spring and summer months. I am torn between the solid axil Foreman and the independent suspension Rubicon. As far as riding everyday checking cows I would think the Independent suspension would be nice for going into rough areas/woods on the farm looking for cattle I would think it would have much smoother ride. But the solid axil would be nice for carrying more weight if needed but for the most part any real hard work that needs done I have tractor and skid steer for. I see low mileage Honda Foreman's and Rubicon's all the time for sale. So before I go buy a new 2018 that they have marked down I wanted to make sure there wasn't an older year that was a much better machine. Also the Honda Dealer has a 2019 Honda Rincon marked down because an older gentleman bought it and decided he wanted power steering and traded it back in. It has 15 miles on it for $7900 but I think I can get them farther down on the price so that is also an option until it sells. My main concern I guess would be reliability, durability and what is going to last longer. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I currently run a Honda 300 Fourtrax and it is a great ATV. However I am looking for something bigger and 4x4 to replace it with.
