Bought the 2011 EV LSV in late 2010. Nothing but charging problems. Took 8-10 hours to charge. Thought the problem would be solved by adding the second charger. Turns out the pins in the power connection weren't up to amp need. Fought, I mean fought with Polaris to replace one of the two burned out chargers. They did, very reluctantly in 2012. I paid for the labor. They wouldn't stand behind Polaris/DeltaQ bad engineering. Told dealer to leave the non-functioning second charger on the EV.
Bottom line, my Polaris EV dealer doesn't sell many (if other than my EV LSV) and therefor doesn't have competent or properly trained mechanics to deal with the problems that I had. My friend who happens to be a Club Car and Polaris GEM dealer knows and completely understands electric vehicles and engineering. He found out about the bad wiring and the wrong programming (algorithms) in the DeltaQ charger(s). Fixed, rewired, re-batteried and ready for the upcoming hunting seasons.
I love my EV LSV, but Polaris Corporate SUX. Did I say that Polaris Corporate SUX? They charge way too much for simple parts and don't, repeat don't back up their bad engineering and decision making. The previous sentence is backed by not less than three current Polaris dealers.
After reading posts over the past several years, Polaris may have addressed some of these issues in the 2012 EV and later models. But at the same time they took advantage of those of us who bought the early models and are charging WAY TOO MUCH money for standard off the shelf battery clamps, bearings, brake pads, etc.
I may have been better off buying a used Club Car and having my local dealership modify for the hunting property (9000 acres) that we hunt. I sincerely hope that the 4+ years of problems with this Polaris EV are in the past.
Sure hope you got it fixed right now.
MHark, I have a 2010 Polaris Ranger EV. I had nothing but trouble with the charging unit. The dealership that I bought it from in Illinois doesn't sell many and isn't familiar with repairing, etc. They did work with Polaris to replace the charger, but now I am having the same issues. Do you have the number of the Polaris dealer that understands electric vehicles and engineering. I can not find anyone that understands the issues to work on it locally and I can't sell it because it will not hold a charge.
It stinks that they aren't backing the guys who backed them when this tech was brand new. You always take a risk purchasing a new model of any vehicle (I did on the new f150) but you would think they would make it so people who do take that risk have nothing but good things to say. Hopefully you found a good fix even if you had to go somewhere else to do it!
