Evinrude Best Warranty 10 years

I’m hoping to get some details on what is and is not covered durIn the 10year Best Warranty.  I am currnelty looking to repower with new 150’s, and want to be fully aware, eyes wide open on coverage.

 

As I will follow the standard maintenance to the T, as well as recalls and campaigns.. here are my questions.

 

1. What are considered wear and tear items? Are piston and rings wear and tear?  If so according to the Best Warranty they are not covered.  Is there a comprehensive list of what is and is not wear and tear?

 

2. This has got me stumped,  say in year 9,the power head implodes. According to the limits of,liabilities.

 

LIMIT OF LIABILITY
1 BRP’s maximum liability under the B.E.S.T. Contract shall not in any case exceed the fair market value of the Covered Outboard at the time of the
repair of Mechanical Breakdown.
2 Neither the Authorized Dealer nor any other person has been authorized to make any agreement, affirmation or representation other than those
contained in the B.E.S.T. Contract and if made, such agreement, affirmation or representation shall not be enforceable against BRP or any other person.

 

So so does this mean BRP would pay fair market value or some sort of credit?

 

 

Please do not take these questions as anything negative, I’m just trying to understand what I am getting into if I pull the trigger on a new pair of outboards,

 

thank you you and I look forward to your response,

Pistons are not wear and tear.

 

I talked directly to a BRP representative and if the engine is written off you are paid, there is no credit.

 

You should also be aware that the BEST component of the warranty is subject to an engine hour limitation. These limits appear to vary dependant on the promotion in effect.

Thank you for taking time to contact Evinrude.

 

The BEST contract would pay you for the value of the motor should a repair exceed the worth of the engine at that time. Wearable parts are consumables such as sparkplugs, water pumps, filters, etc. There is a 1500 hour limit and would preclude the pistons and rings from wearing out. Many Evinrude E-TEC Outboards have multi-thousand hours on them with original pistons and rings, so that is not a problem.

 

If you live in the state of Florida and purchase from a Florida dealer, the engine receives a full 10-year warranty with unlimited hours due to their regulations.
