This my 3rd year running the 90hp etec. I had 2 minor problems - one was bad battery and the second was fuel bulb that had a hole poked in it from a fish. I’ve run lots and lots of hours on this motor trolling, Starts with just a touch of the key. My service is due this year and looking forward to see how many hours is on this motor. Overall I’m very pleased with this motor the way it runs, fuel mileage and stores for winter. I’ve all ways run high test gas and full synthetic oil.

Bought a 2019 90hp ETEC and had great boating with this motor. I would like to mention how easy on fuel this motor is.. Trolling is great.. Long story short no problems. Motor runs flawlessly averaging 60 hour a-week on a 4 month run. I’ll do another review next fishing season.

    I brought my Etec 30 in for repair 15 days ago. The motor is still under warranty. The dealer looked at it right away and knows exactly what is wrong but is STILL waiting for an OK from Evinrude before he can fix it. 15 days for an internal OK? I will never buy another Evinrude product nor recommend that anyone buy one again. I bet if this was an old motor that I had to pay for the repair it would be repaired by now. What good is a warranty if you can't get the dealer to make warranty repairs. Never again.

    Bought this 150hp engine new in 2017. Very low hours on it today. Have had engine issues every year since purchase. Now it's hard to find a dealer that will service them, had to take it 90 minutes away for closest repairs. It's been there 1 month and they still can't figure out what's wrong. Engine is overheating, causing lime build up. What good is a 10-year warranty if no one can fix your issue. Just give me my money back!!!

    Purchased an E Tec 150 from Y Marina in 2010 and nothing but but problems. Went threw starters under warranty, found poor machining in lower unit drain plug at first oil change and cost me 5200 dollars because Evinrude would warranty it or help out, then to top it of CM went out under 400 hours. Pulled the engine. Replaced with Yamaha 150. I had 20000 dollars in the e tec and waste going to throw any more dollars at. I'll never buy anything BPR and I advise everyone to stay clear of that brand.

    I saw a lot of negative reviews on these so I wanted to share how great mine has been. Owned mine from new, all I have done is run the 2+4 Evinrude fuel treatment every so often and change the lower unit oil. This motor has been nothing but raw power and greatness for me over the years. Didn’t hesitate to give 5 stars on this and I don’t usually leave reviews on anything.

    Purchased 2 new engines from Powertech Marine (Hayling Island UK). From day 1 of setting the engines up there were problems. Within the first year 3 injector changes, I ECU change, 1 engine blown up with a holed piston, 1 gearbox blew up and lost all drive, 1 mid section ram leaked and needed replacing, 1 coil pack failed and now both gearboxes out of commission. Every fault thus far can be attributed to Powertech bad installation. However BRP (Evinrude) have not once stepped up to the plate to correct the issues willingly and finally. Each time using sticking plaster resolutions. Thankfully Evinrude have stopped making engines, unfortunately people like Powertech are still installing other manufacturers engines. It's a minefield out there and people really need to research the installer as well as the manufacturer.

    I bought the Etec 90 new in 2016 off a reference of a boat mechanic (not an Evinrude dealer) that he thought the 90 would be the right engine for my boat. This engine has been flawless. I have towed tubes. I have run WOT not often or for long periods but it really has some go when I do let it rip. I believe that this engine makes fuel and doesn't use it... LOL. I would definitely buy it again if I had a time machine.

    Just picked up my brand new fishing boat with an 2020 Evinrude ETEC 90HP. First time out motor ran for about 10 minutes then began to stall at all RPM's above idle. I drove it around like this for about 30 minutes hoping the problem would clear. It continued to stall more frequently and ended up limping back to the dock. Returned to the dealer and they couldn't find any problems but performed a software update on the motor. I took it out again with the dealer mechanic onboard. Same issue. I have no confidence in this motor and the dealer has agreed to replace the motor with a Yamaha.

    I will never purchase an Evinrude motor ever again. My 25HP Evinrude Etech has died on the water twice now. Overheats and I haven't even put 100 hours on it. Do yourself a favor and avoid an Evinrude.
