Thinking I made a mistake.

To All, 

      I repowered my 27 Contender earlier this year with 250 G2's and have had them in the shop TOO many times this year. I would think after paying $50,000.00 for two BRAND NEW engines they would at least get through a year without; Throwing codes, shutting off, going into safe mode, general fault codes, DPS codes, low oil codes, etc. This is frustrating to no end. 

 

     I would like to say that my dealer (Murray Marine) that sold me these things is awesome! Very attentive and accomodating. For instance, I was fishing in the Key West Marlin Tournament and they immediately had me bring the boat iin to fix the issue. They have done this on numerous occasions, throughout the year, and they are the only reason I haven't gotten rid of these motors. I suppose that I have been duped by the hype of salesmanship, and sold a "pig in a poke". I should have listened to my friends and gone with what most charter fishing guides down here use.......Yamaha's. 

 

     I'm going to give these motors another six months, I am at the end of my patience. If at the end of this time period these motors haven't met my expectations then I'm going to get rid of them and buy the new Mercury's or the bulletproof Yamaha's

Rant over

Re: Thinking I made a mistake.

Well, I brought it to the dealers and they "fixed" the problem. I also called the customer support line and they said they couldn't do anything and to call after the dealer fixed the problem, then they could do something for me. The engines were not used for a month and a half. I took it out yesterday and got codes "ESC fault" on the port as well as low power mode. On the starboard engine I got low power mode and the starboard engine but before that, the starboard engine would not maintain the same rpm as the port engine. I guess I got lemons. Any suggestions people? if not, then it's going to be YouTube time.

Did you contact Evinrude again to tell them of the ongoing issues?
