2006 Ski-Doo GTX Ltd - Good/Bad?

Any thoughts on the quality and reliability of this sled? It has 3300 miles on it. The 600 SDI has good reviews I think.

I ride trails only and on typically very good trail conditions. The wife would be a passenger on long trips only so I like the fact that the two rear seats can be removed so I can ride a "one-up" sled. She started driving her own sled last year but won't drive long distance yet. I don't think I'd ever use the 2+1 seat for a third person.

Let me know what you think as I value everyone's opinion.

Should be a pretty solid sled. Good engine and thats the grand touring so it should have all the bells and whistles.

SS, ya, it's got all the toys being a Ltd edition. I've got a '94 Grand Touring and it was loaded for it's time.

Cruzr, He's asking $6k and new it was $12 500. I've found others with higher mileage for $6500 and $7200 so far. It was made pretty much the same until the new XP chassis came out in 2009. I'll just have to see how much more in debt I want to be in.

Thanks for the input, keep it coming.

No, I put it off for now, too many other expenses (yard landscaping for the wife, vehicle repairs) and other toys to buy.
