As if our experience with our Supra 21V hasnt already been bad enough, might as well chalk up another problem.

We ordered and received in April 06', since then we have had a motor mount shift causing the prop shaft be bent, numerous electrical problems with accessories, ballast switches, a bad breaker panel etc. Now yesterday we were out and heard a faint wining noise coming from the Vdrive. We immediately checked the fluid level and it was normal. We keep going and notice the noise getting louder. We finally had to cut and run early because it started to slip and rev up and than catch again every time we accelerated. I can only assume the Vdrive is toast. Reverse is all but gone unless you hammer it. I'm sure my boat will be at the dealership for a few weeks since parts seem to be shipped to them by foot from Tennessee. UUGGH!!!Just venting everybody. I have heard of other 21v owners who have never had a problem. Our boat has spent three out of the twelve months we've owned it sitting at the dealer for repairs. Just bad luck I guess.

Sounds like a tranny, the V-drive is just a gear box really. Slipping like that would be transmission.

I feel ya. Maybe it's time to ask Supra for a buy back and talk to them about a loaner boat at least while this one is in the shop. This is simply not right, but unfortunately, it can happen

The SC guys look at this forum a lot. I doubt they will stay silent long.

Well you should at least get a loner boat while yours is in the shop... Sounds like you got a lemon though.

That situation is not like this one at all. Negligence and not following the proper procedures with your boat is one thing. My issues are another.

What constitutes a "lemon" boat anyways?

Out of cursiousity what di Rick offer? You posted after his PM, but did not give any mention of his response. Being a Supra owner I am very curious to hear how they dealt with the issue.

I am impressed with Mr. Tinkers interest in WW.

Sorry, still haven't got it. Our customer service manager said you and he briefly talked yesterday. I have asked him to call you again to see if we can get you headed in the right direction.

Something must be up with hotmail being filtered out, not sure why my emails dont reach you. Regardless, Rob did contact me. Thank you for initiating that. Hopefully we can get it all dialed quickly so we can get back on the water in this 114 degree heat!! :-)

Well, the dealer took the boat out and ran it and confirmed. The tranny is done. They said they will be getting with indmar to get a replacement. Good times!!!! I dont understand how a tranny can go out in a year. We dont slam the boat with weight and always check fluid levels etc. Bad egg I guess.
