I've never owned a Suzuki outboard and am looking at a Whaler that has two 1996 Suzuki 200 hp motors? Can anyone provide past experience with Suzukis?

I had a 1990 200 that was flawless. Perfect in every way. I put 6 seasons on it and sold the boat...it is still going strong today.
I will however tell you that the boat came rigged with the Suzuki and given a choice of motors, I would have looked to a Yamaha or Mercury product.
The biggest problem I see with the Suzuki's is the lack of dealer support. As an example, for a couple years, we had the boat in AZ and closest authorized dealer was 325 miles away in SoCal. And then after moving the boat to SoCal, even with the authorized dealer, I still felt like the red-headed step child of the service department. Perhaps things are better now?? Just my $.02
