The best cost-to-performance ratio
I use this engine for a 2.85 meter tender. I highly recommend this engine for its low fuel consumption but with the power that allows you to glide with 2 people on board. The only flaw is that the user manual is only in English and the warranty in German.

General question

Flag of English Mercury 3.5HP - how has been your experience with this outboard? I have seen some very BAD reviews around 2011 to 2015 on this outboard, not starting, not running well, etc. I HEARD that mercury had re-designed and copied the much better Tohatsu 3.5HP. Can anyone who has bought this Mercury 3.5HP Four Stroke in the last 1-2 years comment on reliability, use, and "happiness" with the outboard? many thanks, Joao Mendes
