“Mariner outboard 3.5hp 4 stroke”

Written on: 02/07/2012 by clocker (1 review written)

Bought new from Marine Tech, South Walsham on Thursday, ran it for 15 minutes Friday and all good. Took grandchildren out Saturday and ran perfectly .. for half an hour, then stopped, restarted and stopped within two minutes many times. Much time at side of river, badly damaged rub rail on boat. Angry wife, very worried children Tried again the next day, new fuel, thinking it must be the air vent as surely a new Mariner which had pre-sale checks must be OK. It wasn't. Stopped after half an… Read Full Review

“A piece of junk”

Written on: 28/11/2011

I bought this Mercury 3.5 hp 4 stroke outboard from West Marine in early July.On the first run it stalled after 5 minutes and would then only run in 3 minute intervals b4 stalling again. The so-called Mercury "premium dealer" then charged me $120 to supposedly fix the problem which they said was a loose sparkplug. Mercury at first used their "limited warranty" language to say it was'nt covered but then agreed to pay half.Unfortunately the following 2 uses had the same results--sputtering,hard… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2008

Bought mine from bass pro shop, took it out the 1st few times for the break-in period, after break-in period, would run great at 1/2 to 3/4 throttle, at full throttle it would bog out and shut off. Took it back to tracker marine 3 times for the same problem, after the 3rd time, they took a new one out of the box, put in in the run tank and it did the same thing, got a refund, they don't sell them in my bass pro anymore, anyone else have similar problems?… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/08/2008

My Mariner 3.5hp Four Stroke started up right away the first couple of times then wouldn't start. Took the engine back to where I bought it. They messed around with it for an hour to tell me that they didn't know why it wasn't staying started. They did me right, took a brand new one out of a carton and gave it to me. I drove it all around the pond the rest of the day and it ran fine… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/07/2008

Very good quality finish. Starts first time provided instructions regarding first and second pull are followed. Smooth trolling. Good twist grip throttle. Good fuel economy. No need to mix oil and fuel.

This is a good quality reliable reasonably quiet engine but advantages against two stroke are primarily environmental… Read Full Review
