300 G2 powerhead replacement

I have a 2015 300 G2 that has been a lemon with a host of problems and downtime with steering and other stuff.

 

Now at approx 600 hours and lots of knock codes, the powerhead is shot and a new one on the way along with some fuel mixing box I can't recall name of.

 

The weird thing is they are expecting my service guy to reinstall the same injectors which may be suspect in causing the problem. Really?

 

And with only 100 hours on them, half of my plugs had iridum pads missing. BRP admits there is a plug issue out there but won't discuss the chicken and egg of what caused what. They don't seem to tell service dealer much at all.

 

This whole thing is like the twilight zone and I am shocked they don't just replace the whole engine considering all my problems and the bad press I am spreading.

 

My suggestion.... Don't buy a BRP product

We are dismayed to hear about the issues your motor has experienced as that is rare to have that number of problems. The Evinrude E-TEC G2 300 HP has been well received and is been a great performer.

 

Please accept our apologies and send an email with the engine serial number, dealer name, and brief history of your motor. They will look into things for you.

They just send you some canned reply and tell you to talk to dealer but they are not helping dealer very well and I want to know what is going on.

They will check on your claim but at this time of year, during the peak of the boating season, they may be very busy and it may require patience.

Talk to your technician to see if they can contact Evinrude dealer support and go to bat for you.
