Buyer's Guide of the best used four wheelers for sale.


  • Costs less than a new ATV.
  • More for your money - used four wheelers for sale usually have some optional equipment installed. Things like racks, skid plates, wheels and tires, and other extras often come included on used ATVs.
  • Brand name used quads can be had for about the same price as an off-brand model. If you want to be able to find service and parts - this is important.
  • A good used name brand model will last much longer and retain more value than most off brand new models.
  • Used four wheeler models that have had recalls or other common problems have usually had all these sorted out. A new ATV means you're the first one to know about problems.
  • There can be a lot of life left in used ATV 4 wheelers since many of them aren't ridden very much.


  • Repairs are more likely and that can be expensive unless you can do a lot of it yourself.
  • There can be a lot of unknowns with a used 4 wheeler so you really need to look carefully for any potential problems.
  • Most states don't register or issue titles for ATVs so you need to make sure the person selling the four wheeler actually owns it!
  • May not be as reliable as a new model.

Best Places to Find Used Four Wheelers for Sale.

ATVs on Ebay - Covers all the ins and outs of how to find a great deal on a used 4 wheeler. Includes our top tips on how to safely buy used four wheelers on Ebay. See over 1,500 quads listed every day.

Online classifieds - Rapidly replacing printed ads. Craigslist has become the most popular. Many larger towns have their own local online classifieds. Since there aren't any feedback ratings and no way of learning anything about the seller - you need to really be careful of scammers. Never pay for anything before you see it in person.

Print classifieds - Can still be a good source for finding a used ATV. Just like the online ads - you need to be careful - many stolen four wheelers are sold through print ads. Selection can be limited depending on the size of the area the papers cover.

ATV Dealers - Probably the most expensive, but also the safest way to buy a used four wheeler. Most dealers keep only the best used ATVs to sell on their lots. Many offer at least some kind of limited warranty and should be able to do repairs if needed. You just have to decide if it's worth the extra money for that extra peace of mind.

Extra tip - A lot of ATV dealers now list their new and used four wheelers for sale on Ebay. I've seen several cases where the Ebay price is hundreds of dollars less than the locally advertised price! It pays to check.
