Motorguide / Motorguide Pro Series 70 Trolling Motor
In May 2008 I purchased a Motorguide Pro Series 70lb thrust bow mount trolling motor, it lasted all of two months before the 1st & 2cd speeds went out. The store where the motor was purchased said after 30 days the motor had to be sent to Motorguide for warranty repair or replacement, but after pleading with the manager they exchanged it for the same motor. They told me if I had trouble with this motor after 30 days it could not be returned and would have to be sent to MG. The new motor lasted about two months and the same problem occured. I soon learned Motorguide's Customer Service is about as dependable as their motors. I was told they do not repair or replace their own motors, you have to send them to authorized repair service, most of which were so backed up for months with bad motorguide motors. NOW WHAT!!! I'M GETTING A MINN KOTA. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER MOTORGUIDE PRODUCT.
