Don't purchase an Evinrude outboard

I'm not a newbee, I have owned two other Evinrudes. The 1016 60hp Evinirude that I own now has cost me 6 weeks of down time for repairs. Again engine troubles 12/17/17. Only one repair facility near my location. I must wait 2 weeks before they can look at the motor. Here we are again, another month of down time. lemon laws should apply to outboards. Motor only has 46 hours. Envinrude support is crap. DON'T BYE AN EVINRUDE

We are so sorry to hear that your Evinrude outboard has not lived up to expectations. Please email the serial number, dealer name, and a brief history of the engine to  brp.care@brp.com

***************

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.

The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.

Re: Don't purchase an Evinrude outboard,I spoke thru e-mail customer care on 12 /22/25

Well thru e-mail I conversed with Evinrude cutomer care. They apologized to me by giving me a case #. They stated that repair delays were do to the repair facilities. Well after waiting a week to bring in my Evinrude for diagnoses, I was on a list and it was my turn. I was imformed this morning that BRP closes for a week during the holidays. Now if my outboard needs parts, they won't be avaiable until after January 2, 2018. Great! I can see another 3 week repair. DON'T PURCHASE AN EVINRUDE
