I am looking for opinions on the reliability of late model Mercury outboard motors. I am looking at a 2015 boat and the Merc 115hp was replaced in 2016 under warranty. This made me curious about the reliability of the Merc outboards so I looked at some forums discussing extended warranties on these outboards. I know some of these forums can be skewed, but a lot of people were saying you should buy as much extended Platinum warranty as you can afford. This made me wonder how reliable these motors are and the occurrence rate of issues, especially costly issues, with these motors. I would appreciate any opinions or general experiences with the Mercury outboards late model 4-stroke motors and whether they are reliable or if you would expect to have issues.
