My dealer from Louisanna Watersports in Shreveport, LA drove 75 miles to my boat in my boathouse to install the fix for the throttle problem. Now thats what I call service. He also called me everyday with an update since the recall was posted. Malibu will always be the boat in my lift. Great job Eric.

I just got an email from the dealer telling me they will be out to my house on Thursday to fix it. I'm about 50 miles from the dealer, so I'm glad they are making the house call. BTW, should we be expecting some sort of Malibu thank you gift for our patience? I vote for one of those Malibu welcome mats. I've been eyeing one for a while... Whistling.gif

Man, I was over contacted. Malibu e-mailed me, sent me 2 letters. My dealer called me, salesman e-mailed me. Malibu CS called me to follow up and my dealer just e-mailed me letting me know it arrived.

if you're fuel injected there shouldn't be any need to

i agree in theory, but every once in a while I do use it to "clear" things up...

Or get better heat if it's cold out. :) John, I don't know if the 'fix' changes the throttle. However, I have a black plug or button in the base of the throttle itself. You push this in while operating the throttle to get neutral RPM up. I'm thinking this is what the above poster referred to when he said the button stuck.

My dealer has never contacted me and I haven't heard anything from Malibu since the original letter(s) and phone call. During that phone call, I was told that Malibu would be handling it directly, not through the dealer and they expected to have a fix by the 4th and they would dispatch a tech to my house.

Still waiting...

My dealer was the first to contact me, and kept contacting me with updates. Then, I got a certified letter and an overnight letter from Malibu. The dealer called yesterday and said they got 3 shifters in and they fixed mine. I had already taken it up there yesterday because they knew they were getting some in. I picked the boat up yesterday afternoon and took it straight to the water. For those of you who have not heard anything from anyone, I would contact your dealer and see what they have to say.

Good the good call today, and shifter will be on my porch tomorrow morning.

GOOD work malibu.

Don't like hearing hte neutral lock was removed, like being able to rev the boat on occasion.....but im not going to complain if a recall

took less than a week to handle.

Anyone who has only been contacted by Malibu, contact your dealer immdeiately if they haven't already called you. I didn't call my dealer because last week Malibu told me they were going to fix it themselves and not be working through the dealers so there was no need to call my dealer. I called Malibu back today because I saw some people were being taken care of by their dealers. Malibu told me that there was a change in plans and I now had to contact my dealer. Lets hope this works...

Spoke to my dealer and they are going to try to get it fixed on Thursday.
