Mercury Warranty Experience

6 posts in this topic

Anyone have recent warranty experience with Mercury??

I have a 150 Opti in the shop right now waiting on a diagnosis, but I think it's bad.

Any warrenty info would be great, THANKS.

Lots of factors on this...

If you're under warranty yet you should be just fine... unless the dealer finds what could be construed as abusive (not saying there is) use of the motor, based on the RPM trace & time there.

If yo'ure outside of warranty it'll depend on how far out of warranty, what the rpm data shows & what the failure is. I've heard of guys having parts covered but not labor, etc.

Good luck!

I was 13-days past warranty and Mercury replaced the powerhead on my 05' 225 opti free of charge.It took almost a month to get the boat back but they did cover it.

I should have metioned I own an 06 150 that I bought new last year, so I'm one year into a 5 year warraty. I have run it pretty soft since it was new, so it hasn't had alot of abuse. (I like to cruise around with the kids at about 30mph, and I can get that doing about 4000 rpms, and it sure saves on the gas!!)

walligator, imho I will be having the samething done, but I'm waiting for the dealer diagnosis. Did you have yours done at a local dealer??

Thanks!!

I had a few issues and it took some time to figure out just what the issues were but mercury did get the job done at no cost. I was happy in the end with them.

The #4 cylinder went,but they decided to replace the entire powerhead in case there was any other internal damage.Mercury dealer in Anoka,they did a great job but it took 2-weeks to ship it on a truck line to Anoka and than they had to schedule an install.
