GENERAL 4 1000

SHARE THE ADVENTURE

2021 GENERAL 4 1000 Premium is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 164.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Machine Everything is great about this machine other than at only 38 miles, the engine light came on and power was reduced to limp mode. Could only go 10 mph and was 15 miles from home.....made for a long trip home. The hassle of loading on trailer and taking to dealership was irritating and it only took then 20 minutes to fix....some sort of sensor or computer problem. Its just irritating to know that this could happen in the middle of a mountain somewhere!!!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun times I bought this about 3 months ago love it. Accept last time I went on a ride it bogged down and the engine light came on, needless to say I wound up taking it home and finishing out my day by riding my mother in laws Kawasaki terrex.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family and friends toy Have been on a few 8-10 hour rides and it is comfortable and fun. I like the fact that you can talk to the passengers because it is not loud. My firstUTV I bought I traded in on this after 3 rides because of heat and noise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Real Review 300 miles Good fun machine. The family has had a great time. Polaris needs to work on Quality Control and some design issues. Gaps in doors pinch arms and dust comes through parts that come apart creating gaps.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mechanical Issues! Purchased first of August. Had in shop a week later. Still have driveline balance issues and check engine light on. Going for second trip to shop in less than 3 months. Wish I purchased a CanAm

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect total package The only down side to the General 4 Ride Command is the maps. Polaris needs to partner with a map company or allow for an upload of topo maps. The GPS is worthless outside my neighborhood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, and great service I bought this in February and I'm so glad I did. I am able to go riding and take the wife and dogs, both in comfort and style. I also love the fact there are so many things that I can add to it, to make it my own. It handles great, and goes everywhere anybody else does with ease. I have had a couple issues with it which my dealer, in Dunbar WV, took immediate care of. My wife now loves to go riding with me. Awesome machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from capable, smooth, quiet First 4 wheeler I have owned. Purchased for trail riding with grandchildren and farm use. Very capable, smooth, and quiet. Recently completed Colorado trip riding in mountains, and the Polaris gave me the confidence to explore remote areas I would never have considered in a less reliable UTV. Navigation system and cameras are very helpful. Bed is large enough to use for chores. Perfect combination of fun and utility for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome machine! We were hesitant to buy the General 4 just because of the price. It's a lot of money! After about 3 months of ownership I can say we are very happy with our choice to get one. Gregg at Roseville Motosports helped the decision by giving us a great deal! We have 450 miles on it in 3 months and are loving every minute. The only complaint I have is this machine should come stock with taller tires for more ground clearance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than the rest! I have had the experience of driving a lot of different brands as well as models on a working ranch in Colorado. With the upgraded suspension on the 2018 General... it is by far the smoothest, most powerful UTV around. It has more power than the other brands with 1000cc models and is still quieter. I cant find much indent like about this machine. Just make a better upper door kit and this will be the perfect machine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing machine all around!! We bought this machine 3 months ago and we are very happy with our purchase!! We have put it through the test in the sand, snow, mud, rocks and dirt! It has surpassed all of our expectations!! The dump utility bed is a huge plus for our extra gear or work tools. Plenty if power and awesome suspension!! I have recommended this machine to a few people and they bought the same machine, just couldn’t resist!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile vehicle Bought this for the whole family. Great crossover between ranger and razor. Sporty but still a workhorse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best hybrid I bought this five months ago and love it. I have outfitted with Polaris widows, mirrors, horn and front bumper. I decided on the General due to it's great back seat room while maintaining a ride close to the Rzr. My main need now is a soft roof. I am quite tall so I prefer riding without a roof but would like one packed along in the event of in climate weather while on the trails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polaris General is a great machine This is a great piece of equipment. We use it mainly for hunting. There isn't a hill I wanted to climb that I couldn't so far. My only wish is that it was a little quieter. I understand it's a 1000. So it would be a huge challenging to make it produce souch power and little noise. But I also think that could give a opinion to the consumer for this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Family Fun We moved to southern Nevada and just had to join the "cult" of side by side families. No regrets. We are able to go out and reach places that nobody else is. We enjoy packing the General and heading out for a quick overnight camp or even a few days. I will say this. I didn't want to learn the hard way, so a helpful sales person who could explain the "must haves", just in case. Spare tires, spare belt (and a tutorial on how to change it), how to drive on particular terrain and a few others. Thank you, George C

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I bought this General 4 1000 to replace the two RZR XPs that we had. Prior to the RZRs we had 2 different Ranger XPs. The Ranger was too much utility and not enough sport, and the RZRs were too much sport and not enough utility. The General is a perfect mix of both sport and utility. The 100 HP ProStar engine fits the bill perfectly too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Bought this because I was previously using a Kawasaki and the cabin noise was very loud. Friends of ours all have Polaris and it came highly recommended. We decided on the General for the trunk bed feature. Very happy with our purchase. Cabin is quiet compared to Kawasaki. Handles and rides great on the trails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2019 General 1000 4 amazing Our current sxs is a 2006 Rhino. It was difficult to spend double the price since our last purchase but we are glad we did. Amazing machine for trail riding. We spent thousands on accessories to add additional creature comfort and are looking forward to taking it for overnight camping with friends and family.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Family Fun My wife and I decided to buy our General this summer before a family trip to the mountains and couldn’t have been happier we did. All 4 of us fit comfortably and safely in the General, and it had the capability to maneuver thru any and all terrain we encountered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I bought this vehicle to ride more around home and to work. I own several Polaris vehicles 2 razors an ace,and atv. The only thing that disappoints me is the warranty Polaris needs to be proud of the quality and back it up longer than a few months.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome S X S We bought our G4 so the whole family can ride. Our handicapped son really loves being included in the fun. I have his seat set up with a 5 point harness so he’s strapped in very securely. We are all enjoying our new toy!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from poorly made This thing is just a raddletrap,the doors are junk and the roll cage makes so much noise it will drive you up the wall, very disapointed with the seats,all and all should of kept are other side by side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Bought the General in December. Main reason is we go on long rides and want the extra storage in the rear bed. We can put tons of stuff back there. Plus it will fit my family of 5 comfortably. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Ride We have been riding in our General since end of June and have loved everyone. We rode it hard for the first few trips to find any flows and found a few; nothing with the motor or under structure, only superficial. We were able to change drive belt ourselves (must have right tools) and add accessories, with some modifications. After all this, we have enjoyed our outdoor experiences immensely, mountain trails, desert, even an old side hill stagecoach trail. Very happy with our purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extremely Expensive I am glad I bought the machine it is very well made but almost bought Jeep instead because of price, the only reason I aquired general instead of Jeep is because where I live I can use on the road
