There have been a lot of good points made. I have the issues and concerns that most everyone else does. So many of the new items, especially engines, that we buy these days seem to have quality problems right out of the box. So that begs the question: How important is it to have someone backing up your purchase? What do you expect them to do? How much are you willing to pay for that service? It's not free, it will cost the dealer or retailer to provide it to us.
I suspect there are still retailers that are willing to backup everything them sell with either replacements, refunds, or acting on our behalf with the manufacturer if we are willing to pay for it. It would be helpful to them if they could find out who we are.
