thinking of buying a rubicon - tell me the truth

Hey guys. I am buying an atv early next year, and I was leaning heavily toward the Rubicon, but after reading posts on this sight the last few days, I'm having second thoughts about it.

Are these machines really as troublesome as some of these posts make them out to be? Are the transmissions really that fragile?

It seems like almost everyone has had transmission failure of some kind, and it seems that electric problems are pretty common.

So, what I want to know is, what is the real deal with these machines? Did I just focus on the bad posts and not read many of the good posts?

Please help.

I love my 2007 Rubicon and so what if other bikes will go faster. Mine tops at 58ish if I'm going downhill and going any faster than that is senseless and asking for a deathwish imo. It will do all you need it to do, everyday, all day. Let em rag you, but when theirs is locked up or blown up, you'll still be riding.
