Is 6000 miles alot for a snowmobile?
There are lots of forums out there to read which models are good and which ones give trouble. 2000 miles isn’t a lot but on some motors that milage will make it a time bomb. I’ve seen 6000 mile sleds look better than 1000 mile ones. It all depends on previous owner just like anything else.
Why are new snowmobiles so expensive?
The fixed costs, raw materials, sourced components and manufacturing costs must now be spread out over a much smaller build quantity, thereby requiring each sled to bear a much greater cost per machine. The 1995 XLT is an example of just how much volumes have changed over the past 15 years.
