My cousin just bought one last week and she loves hers. She says it is great in the snow, it has a lot of power. She plays hockey, and she says she can fit 2 hockey bags, plus the team jerseys, sticks and all, with a lot of room to spare. I was looking at one this past weekend, and it was quite nice.
One thing I do know about the new 3400 is it has the same crossover head to head for the coolant instead of the coolant running through the LIM, which before had LIM gasket problems like the 3800s do. So now there are no worries of the 3400 LIM gaskets failing anymore.
