Great Minnkota repair service-Motor Clinic

5 posts in this topic

Great service needs to be recognized as much as possible. My Minnkota required servicing so I brought it to the Motor Clinic in Bloomington. Every time I am in there, which luckily isn't very often, Terry and the guys' service is a service model every business should follow. Their customer service, knowledge and efficiency is 2nd to none. They quickly diagnosed the problem. The Minnkota needed a new control board. They invited me back to their service area and then repaired the Minnkota on the spot within 20 minutes. Would have been done sooner but the conversation never stopped. This a great bunch of guys, well run business, deserving of everyones' business. Thank you to Terry and Guys at The Motor Clinic.

Thanks for the tip on the Motor Clinc. I contacted them about my Minn Kota and feel confident now that there is a place close to my home that can solve and fix the problem.

Also with many boats coming this time of year this post could use a bump.

Just a follow up after stopping into Motor Clinic. Well I could not be any happier with their service. Trolling motor was not responding and I brought it in and one of their servicemen invited me in the back to his work bench where he started to check all the little things on the motor. He even explained somethings to me about proper caring for my Minn Kota. The problem was a bad splice, but he was more then happy to correct the problem and then sodder it for me before I left. I could not have been more happy with Motor Clinic and it really gives me great peace of mind if anything happens to my Minn Kota I can get it diagnosised and fixed properly. Thanks to the poster who recommended Motor Clinic.

    • The older Toyota trucks with the 4 banger and the stick were good for off-road, too, but they were even worse than Jeeps in the rust department...    
    •   They're a little different because they had a boxed frame, which tended to collect mud and hold moisture, so it's tough to find an older one with a solid frame.  The frame usually rotted out ahead of the rear wheels.   http://www.carproblemzoo.com/jeep/wrangler/frame-rust-problems.php
    • Mostly body rust. Rocker panels, fenders and the rear corners. Not really any different than any pickup truck.
    • I am out in MN this morning.  Flock gobbling in the valley below me.  Going to start with my bow this time.  Have a few days to hunt.  Oh and Sutty is with me.  Set up across the field with one of his daughters.  Trying to talk him into picking up a youth tag for her.
    • Time to try again.  Not a sound yet. Next day and a half is about turkeys!
    •   They're definitely a nice rig for the backroads, and they hold their value very well if they're kept in decent shape.  The biggest issue with the older Jeeps, including CJs, is they are serious rusters - including frame rust.   Not sure if they ever resolved the rust issues or not with the newer models.  A buddy of mine has a Wrangler Unlimited, and he really likes it.  I think he has a little too much invested in it to use it for an off-road rig, though, so it probably qualifies more in the "fulfilling childhood dreams" category than a true bush buggy....              
    • Was doing some work in the woods today and found these. Of course I stopped and spent two hours looking for more, but this was it. Oh well, will probably be the earliest I've ever gotten to eat them.  
    •   I would definitely get the one with the Pheasant plowing attachment! Beats walking the fields!
    • Never getting rid of my Suburban. Just looking for a new toy for hunting etc. that I can drive down narrow dirt roads up north. Another reason why I would rather buy a slightly used one so I can use it without worrying about putting a few scratches on it. Those side by sides look like fun but you have to haul them around and cant drive them everywhere. And they just aren't built to take what a Jeep can. Always kind of liked the looks of Jeeps and being able to remove the top in the summer is nice to. Would definitely want a hard top to as the soft tops aren't to good for MN winters. I'm sure the newer ones have better heaters than the older ones as I remember back in the day guys were dressed like they were snowmobiling while driving their Jeep. And scraping frost off of the window to see.
