    Pros: Ergonomics, reliability, durability, drivability, traction and resale value are excellent!
    Cons: The horse doesn't get ridden much anymore!

    Summary: Embarrassing Background Material (Please feel free to skip this part) Last summer I gave into my family’s desire to purchase an ATV. I had run out of excuses for not buying one. I began my usual stall tactic, which is to research the ... read more

  • Big bike in a small package!!

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fits in a standard 6 ft bed!  Granny gear for inclines and declines. 
    Cons: Backup "pull cord" sould be easier to access... (though I've never needed it"

    Summary: Though the Rancher 350 es 4X4 only has a 329cc engine and 24" tires, I have been everywhere the "big boys" have been.  This bike seems virtually unstoppable on inclines, in water, and mud.  Plenty of power for my 220lbs.  I use the granny ... read more

  • 2001 Honda Rancher 4x4 ES - One heck of a machine

    May 12, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Well built, extremely durable, low center of gravity
    Cons: Honestly, none that I can think of.

    Summary: This is an excellent machine. I use it 90 percent of the time for farm chores. I now have over 2800 miles on it, and they weren't easy joy riding miles. It's really like a jeep or small tractor with the work you can get done with it. I've ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: The tires are still in good shape, seat still looks new.
    Cons: Been in/out of the shop for 6 months thats why every thing still looks new.

    Summary: I admit this unit looks great when I have it home rides very well too. Problem is first day I unloaded it the electric shift got hung in up shift. Thoughts well its new has a few kinks. Second time I unloaded it, I rode it in the yard a few times the ... read more

  • The way to go

    Apr 11, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good Looks, Great Handling, Ample Power, Comfortable, Not too hard on the wallet
    Cons: 4x4 on/off ?

    Summary: I searched high and low over the span of two years for the ATV to suit me. There was no make or model that I did not try out at least once. Then I came to the conclusion that, first of all, I had to get a Honda to erase all worries. Other makes had their ... read more

  • great family four-wheeler

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: light weight, electric shifting is great, 4x4 is beyond great,
    Cons: rear suspension not adjustable

    Summary: 2002 ES. Bought to ride trails and as a utility bike. It functions superbly so far. If you buy a quad have the dealer put tire sealent in the tires, especially if you ride in mesquite or cactus infested areas. There are a few things I wish ... read more

  • ONE OF THE BEST

    Mar 5, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: SMALL, CAN WHIP THROUGH TRAILS, GOES THROUGH MUD AND WATER LIKE THE BIG BOYS
    Cons: NOTHING

    Summary: We had our first taste of the Rancher ES back in October of '99. Honda introduced the machine to the media near the company's plant in Marysville, Ohio, where the four-model Rancher lineup is manufactured. Honda representatives informed us that the ... read more

    Pros: Perfect size, tough, reliable, and very fun
    Cons: The lights don't shine very far in the dark

    Summary: Well I was skeptical about getting a 4-wheeler because I had never driven one. But my husband and I decided to go anyway and at least look. The Honda 4 trax Rancher 4x4 was the best we found for a reasonable price. It did not take me to long to learn how ... read more

  • Just Buy it!

    May 21, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Tough, Comfortable, great traction, good in mud/water, it's a Honda!
    Cons: Still trying to find a bad feature, waited two months for front bumper though

    Summary: I looked at a number of quads in this class and it came down to two: the Rancher ES or the Yamaha Wolverine. The Yamaha is a tad quicker but the Rancher handles Big Wheel kits with ease and the Yamy starts to choke with big gums on it (both top out at ... read more

  • Don't like Automatic...and having doubts about Electronic Shifting?

    Apr 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's not the biggest, but it's tough. The electronic shifting feature works well.
    Cons: When "off", FourTrax is in neutral. Parking brake can slip when carrying a load.

    Summary: ***Update 12/13/03*** Two annual oil changes since the last update. This machine is still running like a top. Not a single problem with engine, electrical or electronic shifting. Though ridden periodically during the summer, most work is done ... read more

  • One tough machine

    Feb 27, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks, comfort, and Honda's proven standards
    Cons: None

    Summary: I was debating on whether to get the Honda Foreman or the Rancher, and the more research I did the more I realized that the Rancher was the best choice for me. This four-wheeler not only looks tough but it is tough. It will go many places where I would ... read more

    Pros: Nice looking, speedomoter, big, will go anywhere
    Cons: Not crazy about the electronic shift

    Summary: We just bought a 4x4 Rancher ES a few months ago. I was so mad when my dad said we were getting a 4 wheel drive, and an electronic shift. I prefer the shifter on the floor. The Rancher is large, but it gets through the woods really well. ... read more

  • Perfect machine

    Sep 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Built like a monster truck. Shaft driven. Plenty of power. Has a handy trunk and great footboards. Can pull and carry alot. Bright lights. Looks "macho" and proves it.
    Cons: Electric shift "klunks" kinda hard. Front end is a little lite, some weight on the rack helps when climbing uphill.

    Summary: I own a ranch, so having 4-wheelers is a must. I know from years of ownership to only buy toys from Honda. This machine seems to have been built for the rancher, so I guess that's where they got the name. I chose it because of the combination of perfect ... read more

    Cons: I'll let you know when I find one...

    Summary: I purchased this as a utility vehicle for my property in New Hampshire. Due to the reputation of Honda for innovation and reliability of product, I bought Honda again. I currently own a Honda Trail 90 that I bought in 1978 (new) and a 2000 GoldWing SE. ... read more
