Mercury just announced that all Optimax and 4 stroke engines sold between Jan 1 and April 15 will carry a 5 year warranty. Yamaha is also doing this, to only March 15, on similar technologies, but not on the 225 4 stroke!
I guess this means that both of these manufacturers are pretty confident in the long term reliability of their engines. Bombardier is not offering this 5 year warranty, but instead offering cash discounts up front, a mistake if you ask me. I wonder what that means? If I was going to take a chance on a Ficht, the most damaged trade name in outboards, a five year warranty would make a huge difference to me in comfort level of the purchase.
The other thing these extended warranties from Merc and Yamaha tell us, is that there must not be any problems in selling the old style two strokes, and buyers are resisting the high cost of the clean technology, and worried about reliability of same.
