Stay away from Honda small engines
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE -- I bought a pressure washer with a Honda engine on 6/18/09. Used it twice with no problems. Third time it would not start so took it to the authorized Honda repair shop. They say it needs the gas tank and carburetor cleaned (after two uses????) and warranty won't cover it. Repair cost of $58 on a practically brand new product. I called MTA Distributors and they claimed I had put in bad gas that had broken down after a couple of weeks. HMMM...the gas works o. k. in my car and lawnmower! (Maybe I should buy "magic gas"). Also claim in a related review that may be gas sat in the carburetor "perhaps even months, before the consumer bought it." And that's my fault??? Would do NOTHING to assist so the pressure washer goes to Goodwill or The Dump and I'm out $335 because MTA says it's my problem and Lowes says not to bring it back to them for repairs or a refund. Consumer beware!!!!!
