    Even though I haven't had a lot of seat time in my Wolverine yet, the best thing I like about it is that almost every part of it is well thought out: Performance, ergonomics, quality, and maintenance. After looking and riding in many other makes of side by sides, I'd have to say that the Wolverine (and the Viking) have the best specs and performance features for the price point. And as a long time Yamaha motorsports owner, there is the legendary Yamaha reliability and quality.

    I know that my LIKE about the Wolverine shows up a lot of times in the DIS-LIKE thread on this forum, I have to say, overall, I like how the machine is built. What I mean by this is the panels are all interlocking and solidly fastened. This definitely does make it a pain to work on due to how far you have to take it apart for simple maintenance or repairs, but it makes for a lot less rattles, vibrations, dust in the cab, etc. - it is a very well-built machine. To this point, I have spent more time installing accessories and "upgrades" to my ride than I have riding it. Hopefully this Summer my riding hours will surpass my wrenching hours and I will get to enjoy the quality build. My buddy's Ranger and my Dad's Prowler definitely don't share those same attributes. Too much exposed plastic around the base of the machines, rattles, clunks, noises, vibrations, heat, and so on. I'm very happy with my Wolverine.

    I'm sure I'll add to this list for my X4:

    -LED head/tail lights
    -switching from low to high beams leaves low beam lamp illuminated (someone finally realizes the concept that you want to be able to see BOTH short distance AND long distance simultaneously, not one or the other)
    -6 cup holders
    -front and rear accessory power outlets
    -actual temperature gauge
    -pre-wired accessory taps and switch cutouts
    -passenger grab bars better than any other manufacturer, we're riding in a SxS, not a subway train
    -tilt steering
    -arched front a-arms (coming from Viking)
    -adjustable driver seat
    -plush seats
    -short hood lookover
    -rubber plugs for foot well drains
    -full-height doors (despite being a little more difficult to get in and out of)
    -dual shell roof and the fact it covers the cargo area (vs previous model's single layer roof)
    -dry sump oil system
    -coil in cap spark plug
    -single-latch tailgate
    -accessory integration (sucked on previous models: roof and windshield mate nicely, pool noodle manufacturers are going to lose revenue)
    -self-leveling rear suspension
    -quiet engine/cab from soundproofing and helical cut gears
    -soft cab protection
    -secondary transmission unit separated from main engine (those gears are now bathed in proper gear oil, not thinner engine oil)
    -passenger/storage configuration options
    -drive by wire (now that it's properly adjusted)
    -turning radius/maneuverability
    -power.... clutch mods are icing on the cake, 2000 lb towing capacity
    -heated O2 sensor
    -improved air filter design
    -engine access
    -upgrade from 2/4 ply to 4/6 ply stock tires
    -greatly reduced mud/splash on windshield and cabin compartment compared to my Viking

    My 2017 R-Spec has excellent power steering, and I like the looks of the Wolverine too! It's easy to get in and out of. The ride is not bad, I'm still trying to sort out the adjustable shocks for the best possible ride. I like the instrument cluster, it's easy to read at a glance.

    I'm late to the party having only recently got a 2016 R-Spec SE. I'm a life-long dirt bike rider, having never driven or even sat in a sxs. So when my wife mentioned this past spring we should get a sxs I was at a loss of where to begin. My wife and I borrowed a friend's Teryx and, while overall a decent machine, we were both surprised at the noise and heat filling the cabin throughout the ride. That would not do. After briefly considering some of the competition it looked as though the Wolverine had a winning combination of what we were looking for:

    Wife likes:
    Styling
    Intuitive controls
    Seating position
    Comfortable seats
    Bed size for bringing along all of her stuff
    Smooth ride with the Ultramatic and great suspension
    Lots of storage in cabin
    Very little heat in cabin
    Acceptable cabin noise
    Dog loves it

    My Likes:
    All of the above, plus
    Yamaha reliability (expected)
    Well put together
    Sufficient power
    YXZ steering wheel (SE)
    Beadlock wheels (SE)
    Full aluminum skid plates and A arm guards (SE)
    Good fuel range
    Fun!
    Great info on this forum to make the Wolverine even better

    And most of all, wife loves it. I can't seem to keep her out of it!
