These sled are dependable and fast. Not sure what 3000 is in cnd but I would not spend over $2000 us.

Only thing to really check is the water/oil pump belt. It can ruin a few weeks of riding.

Those 2000 700's are hard on gas in comparison to say like the 2001 when they put the VES on it. My uncle has a 2000, and it doesn't even come close to the gas mileage of my 800. Also XCR440 is right about the belt, my uncles blew within first 1000 miles, and blew the engine, his skipped off. Personally I would look at going with a 2001 or newer, to get the VES

The belt is under the recoil. They don't have issues. They just need to be checked on a yearly basis.

Actually they didn't put VES on the 700's until 02. They have a kit that you can buy for them, it was around $1000 but I'm not sure what it costs now.

My friend has a 99 xc 700. Its a nice sled. Stock clutching and jetting left something to be desired, but after having it properly tuned it is a quick strong sled.

I get the same milage on my prox 700 as I did not my 98 xc 700, 10-12 mpg at the most. Both sleds are/were clutched simular.
