How long have you owned the Pioneer? 1 week

First impressions Smooth ride, Automatic trans is real nice, will go just about anywhere, Exhaust a tiny bit loud at full throttle/speed, Comfortable for 15 miles

6 months report what have you found different from your initial thought? Will do then


Likes No belt, Honda, Short 4 seater, no choke

Dislikes All the **** nets, Would still like a low gear or a lower 1st with a 4th gear, spooled rear diff-would like an open diff, Really needs rear fender flairs-The mud gets in all kinds of stuff with the 4 seater

Would you recommend the Honda Pioneer to others? why or why not? Its a freaking Honda and it does not have any stupid belts

Gas mileage n/a

Terrain capabilities? So far it has taken me up a few butt clenchers (steep hills), So far so good

Locations I go to Been to 5 mile pass, Will be going to the knolls sand dunes

It would be nice to see a few more people fill this out.

It could be helpful for the noobs that have not pulled the trigger yet?

This thread was made to help potential owners and others to get a feel and gain some knowledge from current owners in regards to the Honda Pioneer SxS.

Some things to cover:


  • How long have you owned the Pioneer? Picked up in November 2013
  • First impressions Rear seats are outstanding. Bit awkward to get in/out the front seats.
  • 6 months report what have you found different from your initial thought? Rear seats are awesome!!! Im used to getting in/out the front now.
  • Likes No belt, Its a Honda. It goes anywhere
  • Dislikes No 4th gear/ 40+ mph is quite loud and feels "high strung"
  • Would you recommend the Honda Pioneer to others? why or why not? Yes, really seems a great machine for the $$
  • Gas mileage No idea. Seems to sip gas for daily work, road travel does use gas noticeably.
  • Terrain capabilities? This thing flat GOES. Myself and everyone that has been with me has been seriously impressed. I will say snow performance sounds like its a bit sub par with stock tires. I have little complaints, but did notice an unstable feel on snow covered roads. Those in heavy snowfall areas may want to consider tire upgrades.

How long have you owned the Pioneer? Two weeks
First impressions- Typical Honda product, nothing great but does everything well like my Honda Crosstour.
6 months report what have you found different from your initial thought?
Likes Easy to get in and out, versatile and capable.
Dislikes- vibration until up to speed. Honda there are better tires out there for the money.
Would you recommend the Honda Pioneer to others? why or why not? I paid 9500 for a P2 out the door. Very good value with Honda reliability and resale. Its not an rsx850 in performance but still is very capable.
Gas mileage- Hopefully better than driving my car to the barn.
Terrain capabilities? Been up some pretty good hills and works well. Snow could be better. If I did a lot of snow I would get new tires.

None so far
Would you recommend the Honda Pioneer to others? why or why not?

Happy with Honda...long time Ranger owner

Post a picture of your Pioneer

How long have you owned the Pioneer?
2 months

First impressions
love the flexibility of 3rd and 4th seat. need to add front rack for storage but still prefer wheelbase of Honda vs 4 seat Ranger

6 months report what have you found different from your initial thought? will let you know

Likes - auto transmission. 2nd row seating when needed. doors keep mud out. shaft drive.

Dislikes - wouldn't mind low and high range. muffler noise a bit loud inside cab (not as loud as you pass by as it seems inside)

Would you recommend the Honda Pioneer to others? why or why not?
absolutely. Honda has been my favorite for ATV's since the day of the 110. glad they are making a UTV that is strong competitor to Ranger. have owned Ranger UTV since 2005 and Pioneer first Honda option that has made me reconsider. was able to haul clients and friends to duck hole and deer woods but could also flip down seats and haul feed/cargo as needed. very functional.

Gas mileage
not sure. don't care

Terrain capabilities? our hunting club is in river bottoms near White River refuge in AR and road conditions are currently horrible due to logging....Pioneer never missed a beat. glad I have the winch but haven't needed it.

Utard, great looking trailer sir! Unfortunately I will have to get an enclosed model (extra cost) due to road dirt and salt in local winter driving conditions.
