I'm hearing an alarming amount of issues with this trolling motor... between 2 buddies the whole unit has had to be replaced a total of 11 times THIS YEAR and its only May. They did say the customer service and warranty dept has been awesome, pretty much on a first name basis at this point. LOL.
Not one issue with mine, going on 14 months now. I've heard the gen 1 models had issues, but since they have addressed and fixed the issues. I have the 2nd generation model, and no issues.
