Just curious, what's the model number of your engine.

I have been a member of this forum since 2016 and on a daily basis you have chimed in and offered advice on BRP customer service but for some reason you are not able to respond to me, find that a bit odd. 

 


If you are passing these along to BRP, how about asking them to reach out to me? I have been sending emails almost daily but no one from BRP has extended me the courtesy a reply.

 

 

 


 

You are making incorrect assumptions. 

I have responded to your posts in the past and this morning I responded directly to you.  Please remember that I do not work in customer service.

When I forward anything to another department, there is either a cover letter or an explanation attached and signed and your case was no exception.

 Joel,
 
I understand that BRP reached out to you on Friday and both of you came to an agreeable solution.

I have an Etech  250HOG2 I had some problems initially but I never had to contact BRP. Your reputable dealer should and will take care of all your issues. I am the happiest Boater on the water my engine works for almost 2 years perfectly after the last map update. Best engine out there.

Well, here it is August and I'm hoping to get my boat back nest week.  What a great summer.
