    I believe generally that 250 ProXS has been a good motor...

    I still have a lot of warranty on this motor .... Another 3.4 years. I'm not having issues getting things replaced under warranty but when is enough ... enough ? 8 or 9 times in the shop this summer .... Multiple tows off the lake . Every time this thing breaks down on me it costs me money. drive your boat 3 hours one way to a shop then 3 hours home. Do the same trip a few weeks later to get it to break down again ? Repeat above another 7 times in a short short season up here in Canada. I keep hearing the same things.... " you have warranty" What about losing a full season of using my $100,000 boat (Canadian funds) What about being towed in ? Gas and time driving it all over Ontario and even Newyork to be looked at .... I'm not looking for handouts but looking for merc to step up and i just don't see that happening.

    I agree, your dealer should be stepping up, if not, then yes, I would definitely escalate to a higher power in Merc. May be time for a well placed e-mail...but I still would recommend a post over in the Merc forums...

    I have had a flawless 160 hours on mine (except for the 2 weeks it was in for new lower unit after I left a big chunk on a rock in Lake of the Woods -- my fault).
