Reading about the Honda Pioneer I thought I would put together a list of the pros and cons I have found so far, and then others could add in any that were missed.

Pros
- Price point is affordable ($9,999, $11,699 for four seater)
- Stowable rear seats make the Pioneer quite versatile
- Front and rear doors open wide making loading and unloading a cinch
- Built in the USA!

Cons
- Only dry storage is in the glove compartment
- Soft suspension when riding with 4 passengers
- No EPS option
- Could be faster

Does that about cover it? There must be more pros and cons that I've missed...

Interesting. The soft suspension could simply be due to the extra weight of 4 passengers putting a high load on the struts causing them to be bouncy

If they valve the struts too stiff it'll make regular single riding way too uncomfortable off-road. With a softer compression dampening comes more comfort when going over unlevel ground at speeds.

Well I am going to have to take some measurements to make sure that I can transport the thing before I make a decision. I really don't want to have to buy a trailer. If it doesn't fit I may look for a different UTV that has smaller dimensions.

The weight would be another factor to consider. You take a 1500# machine with another 200#-300# of gear and accessories your getting a good load in the back of a pickup. Especially once you start fighting gravity and putting it up higher. I would look into suspension upgrades for hauling one, just for the handling of the pickup. That depends on what vehicle you have also..

Yea nice loading dock. I also see that you have a storage compartment sitting in the bed. So if you took that out there would be enough room to close the gate and transport it pretty easily. Do you know what the dimensions of your bed are?
