Great engine, punches well over its weight. BRP have said they will continue to support the Etec range for another 10years minimum. Thereís plenty of parts in circulation. Get a printout from the engine if possible before you buy it. If itís been serviced the owner should have one. They all came with a 5 year warranty, some had a 10yr warranty, worth checking this too.
