Rated 1 out of 5 by Rimfire64 Horrible product
I have used mine for two or three fishing seasons. It has not broken down. I have used Motorguide for thirty years. This is the only one I have had problems with.
Same complain, sometimes it doesn't turn off, or turns on, with the throttle in the "Off" position. Will drain your battery if you aren't around to unhook the power cables. Also, the motor cuts out completely (instead of just slowing down) if the battery gets lows. The motor also seems to run the battery down quicker .
I put it on a loaner boat and I will be replacing it with a Minn-Kota that has great reviews.
I wish Bass Pro Shops would start removing bad products from their inventory and start pressuring the manufacturers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by gogetem Good idea bad result
I got this motor 3 years ago when they first came out,used it 2 times and lost all power.Took it to the shop for warranty repair they said the board burnt out and that it was common.Used it for another year and descided to get a Big Foot button and then it happed again.Took it to the same repair shop and they said that you can't use a button on these VariMax motors they cause the board to burn out every time and that these motors were junk to go buy a Minn Kota.The motor works great when it has power and the board isn't burnt out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by JLT1 WORST PURCHASE EVER
I purchased this 24V trolling motor early this spring(3-19-12) First motor had bad vibration, Second(4-15-12) motor had bad vibration and when i opened the box i extended the handle and it pulled off in my hand, Third motor(7-14-12) had a chipped prop, bad vibration, handle pulled off in my hand, loud noise started coming from it, the powerhead didn't line up with the lower unit and set screw wouldn,t hold it! Ruined my whole year of fishing so far with this poorley made motor! I'm 38 and have been fishing with, buying and using MotorGuide my whole life. LAST MOTORGUIDE I'LL EVER BUY!!! Dont waste ur time! BassProShops made it as easy as it could go. They didn't make the Motor
