Yamaha Outboard Motor Problems Under Investigation By Class Action Lawyers

(LegalLaw247.com, August 05, 2013 ) New York, NY – The attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating allegations that certain outboard motors manufactured by Yamaha Motor Corporation contain a serious design or manufacturing defect. It has been alleged that the Yamaha first-generation F-series four-stroke outboard motors, model years 2000 to 2005, contain a defect in their aluminum exhaust component coatings that can eventually lead to premature engine problems and failure. If you own a boat installed with this Yamaha outboard motor, you may be entitled to compensation. To learn more, please visit http://www.classaction.org/yamaha-outboard-motors.html today.

A putative class action lawsuit in Florida alleges that the coating defect permits hot gases to corrode the exhaust passages, which in turn develop holes and can eventually lead to a loss of horsepower, engine failure and other problems. According to the suit, the alleged defect manifests only after 500 to 700 hours of usage, which for recreational users will typically occur after Yamaha’s three-year warranty has ended. The suit claims that Yamaha has failed to publicly acknowledge the alleged defect and failed to provide relief to purchasers, who as a result must spend thousands to repair or replace their motors.

The alleged defect is hidden in the motor’s aluminum exhaust component coatings, which are not readily viewable to users, the suit claims. The plaintiff in the suit alleges that he only learned of the corrosion from a mechanic, whom he visited after noting his engine was experiencing a loss of power. The plaintiff claims that he was given a nearly $7000 estimate for repairs and had no knowledge of the corrosion prior to the mechanic’s inspection.

The putative class action lawsuit against Yamaha claims that the company should have noticed the alleged defect during the design and manufacturing process. If you own a boat installed with a Yamaha 2000-2005 first-generation F-Series four-stroke outboard motors, you may have legal recourse in light of these allegations.
