Since i doubt there are statistics to back me up, I may well have to leave it as personnel opinion. But there are two brands of outboard that seemingly have impecable(sp?) reputations, one is Honda and the other is Suzuki. Neither have the best top end, neither have the best hole shot and neither may be the prettiest, but when it comes to dependability, they simply can't be beat and when i am on the water, thats my top concern, not that i can go 2 mph faster than the other guy
