Consumer Complaints and Reviews

In 2003 I bought a 28-foot Commander Sport Cat with a Volvo Penta DPX500 (475 H.P.) engine. When I first got my brand new boat it had damage under the hull, the outdrive was scratched up and the trailer had a flat tire. When I took the boat to the lake I started it up and tried to place it in reverse and nothing. The boat would not go into gear.
I took it to a mechanic and it was repaired. Three hours later the outdrive cracked in half leaving me and my family stranded in the middle of the lake. I take the boat to get repaired and the mechanic calls me up and asked me if I had purchased the boat used because according to Volvo the engine and driver were registered to someone else.

Two months later the boat is repaired with and explanation that it was a paperwork error as far as the outdrive and engine are concerned and I should not experience any more problems. Take the boat out again and it overheats. Now I take it to Quality Performance Marine to be repaired for a leak in the hydraulic lines and that the steering wheel will not lock to, its turned to the right. They state that they called Volvo and Volvo doesnt know what's wrong with it so they start replacing parts. $1700 later the problem is not fixed and I am out money.
