buying my first rhino

Well I have been looking at utv's for a couple weeks now and I'm liking the looks of a rhino and from roaming around this site I'm liking them even more. Now I've been looking around on craigslist for a used one but havnt been having much luck. I'm from the kc, mo area, a little east from there. But I stopped by a local dealer and he just happened to have in a 2006 rhino 660 in camo, just what I've wanted. Now they are asking 6500, dealers are usually a little high so what do you all thing of this price??

I didn't get a good look at it as it was in the shop packed in with the other side by side, but it was getting the cv boot replaced. And while the mechanic was working on it he jacked up a fuel line connector or something.

6500 for a used 06 rhino kind of pricey for me you can find a cheaper one just have some patience

Yeah, that's what my buddy said. I'm going to look at it after its all fixed and see if they will go down any or throw in some accessories. My pops knows a few salesmen there so you never know...

What would be a pretty fair price though?

I have kept looking around and found an 07 camo winch mud tires and lights for 6200. Its from a private seller. I guess I just need to go check it out and drive it around.

Personally, after dealing with an ATV from Yamaha, I'm not recommending purchasing from a dealer. They find every possible way they can to screw you out of money. As soon as that ATV leaves the showroom, or the sales lot, its value decreases by half. So you buy a brand new 2010 Yamaha Rhino 450 (retails at about $8500 I believe) and you drive off the lot and now you couldn't get that dealer to give you $4000 for it. IMO its better to find a private seller and avoid the dealer's markup price on a new model. The 660's are not built anymore but there are plenty of parts out there for them. As for the price on that, I'm thinking its way too high for a 2006. I don't care that it says Yamaha on it. That machine is 4 years old, and who knows how its been treated by the previous owner(s). Unless that dealer gives you a warranty on it, I wouldn't bother.
