General Comments
I Purchased a 25 HP 2 Stroke Johnson Outboard Motor, it was 2 years old, internally and externally it looked fine and I can only suppose that the seller did a good job of tarting it all up so it looked like new.



Two weeks after purchase the pull cord on the starter mechanism broke. That was replaced.



Three weeks after purchase the starter mechanism recoil spring broke. This was replaced



4 Weeks after purchase the starter mechanism pawls and springs broke. These were replaced.



5 Weeks after purchase the petrol input captive hose clip to the engine just fractured as we were

motoring along and we could not get petrol feed into the engine. This was replaced.



I have decided that enough is enough - Johnson Outboards in my personal opinion are unreliable.



When I spoke with the main dealer for Johnson Outboards for Corfu , he offered to sell me another Outboard, not a Johnson but a Mercury which he said was much more reliable .



Would I purchase another Johnson Outboard definitely NO.
