Honda Marine Outboards - Honda Marine 130 HP Outboard Motors
Defective Design - Complaint
SOUTH CAROLINA -- Bought a Honda 130 HP outboard boat engine 10 years 3 months ago. This engine has 50 hours or less total operating time. Started having problems with the engine this month when I took my boat out of storage to get it ready for vacation. Took it in for service and the tech said there were numerous technical service bulletins on the motor all major problems - cracked blocks being one of them. Honda to their credit did extend the warranty from 5 to 10 years however, 3 months out of the warranty period and have to buy a new motor. Guess what, it definitely will not be a Honda.
All outboard boat motor purchasers might want to seriously consider this post when considering Honda Outboard motor purchases. Julian King email address for additional info: [snip]
