I did a review on the '09 Renegade 800 that is posted elsewhere on this site. I now have 900 miles on my Renegade, and have had no reliability issues what so ever. I took it back to the dealer for a complete service one time, but otherwise have done all of the service work myself. I am still on my original air filter, and it still looks clean, believe it or not. That is a record for me because I live in the southwest desert where it is always dry and dusty. I suspect it has something to do with always being in the lead, LOL.
I had previously owned a number of different sport utility ATVs, such as a Prairie 700, a Brute Force 750, a number of Grizzly 660s and Grizzly 700s, a Rincon, and a while back had owned a Sportsman, a Scrambler, and a Wolverine. For sport riding on a 4x4 ATV the Renegade is in a league of its own. None of the others even come close in power, handling, and overall performance.
The Renegade does not have racks to carry spare fuel cans with you, but it will go farther on tank of gas than other utility ATVs I have ridden with. I did a 130 mile ride last summer with 8 Grizzly 700s. Every one of the Grizzlys ran out of gas within a few hundred yards of each other at the 90 mile mark, and had to refuel with the gas they had carried with them. My Renegade 800 finished the 130 mile ride without having to refuel.
