I would like to disown the Evinrude family. I have been a waterman for over 30 years and am sooooo sorry that I ever bought an Evinrude. This is the worst, most unreliable piece of junk I have ever owned. I am sorry that I switched from my old reliable Mercury and would love to be rid of this evinrude. And to think I saved my money to pay so much cash for a brand new motor. I will never purchase another Evonrude in my lifetime, nor will my children, grandchildren, or any other relarive or acquaintance of mine. I can't emphasize enough how disappointed and frustsrated I am with this entire experience. Not only is the motor a piece of junk, the service I have received from the dealer I purchased it from has been even worse. I advice anyone considering the purchase of an Evinrude to BUY SOMETHING ELSE.!!! THIS MOTOR IS NOTHING BUT A PIECE OF JUNK, AND THE COMPANY DOES NOT STAND BEHIND THEIR PRODUCT. SAVE YOURSELF A LOT OF GRIEF AND BUY ANYTHING ELSE!!!

Well that is quite a rank..but do you have anything specific to add?
What motor? What problems you've had?
This sounds more of a Mercury troll than a disgruntled owner!!
We are sorry to hear of your situation and would be glad to forward your concerns to folks who can look into this for you.
Could you post a brief history of your motor and the serial number?
What made you try a Evinrude after all those 30 Waterman Years being with Team Mercury? I will tell you why, cause you had Issues with your Mercury many times. If you have been using Outboards for 30 years you would have been a Team Yamaha, not Team Jercury. I hear great things about the New E-Tecs. Your Complaint has done a Very Savvy Idea and that was to........Make an Outboard look GREAT. I have played with drawing some ideas that i have repeated for the last 15 Years and my Idea of making an Outboard Nice looking came after I saw the HONDA. If there was ever, ever a Fuglky Outboard they own it, Honda. This is an amazing problem that the Bets Japanese Corporation in the "everything" Business has designed! I could never buy a Great Engine cause it looks so bad. I would be ashamed Trailing my Boat around with that Moon Ball on my Rig. E-Tech you got the Idea and maybe it was from me but, I know you will never Cop to it!
