Default How reliable are the 01-03 MXZ 800s?

Looking for a strong reliable sled. I’ve seen some MXZ 800s for sale but don’t know how reliable they are or what I should look for when searching, also the right questions to ask. I’m working with a $1500 ish budget. My dream sled when I was young was an 02 MXZ X 800 and see some with 3000-7000 miles but are they reliable? What should I try and find if not?

Phenomenal snowmobile; one of the best ever built. Try to get a 2002 (first year with RER). I had 3 of them. Never an issue with about 10,000 miles on them. Now that they're older though, you'd want to do your due diligence- reseal the engine, ensure carb boots are sound.
