stringer separation on 2013 MXZ

Recommended Posts

We are the 2nd owner of a 2013 Wakesetter MXZ. Had 150 hours when purchased 1 1/2 years ago and only used only one season (a few times) in AR. When summerizing and putting back on the water a few months ago, the tech said water was coming in and he had to take it back to shop, the same shop who winterized it. Long story, but after having it dismantled by hull expert in OK, stringers have both separated/delaminated, multiple hairline fractures everywhere, this tech said Malibu inferior layer failed, was definitely a structural/manufacturer issue. We, being first time owners, did not know about transfer of warranty, but can prove we are second owners. Tech is trying to help us with Malibu, nut to no avail, yet. The Malibu dealer that did the servicing in Rogers, AR has not been advocating for us with Malibu and not very responsive through out this whole ordeal. Any input or thoughts would be appreciated. Shouldn't a lifetime hull warranty be for a lifetime regardless of a piece of paper transferring ownership> Not really a lifetime warranty then...just sayin'...

According to the 2013 owner's manual the warranty can only be transferred to a second owner if they purchase the boat within 3 years of the original purchase date, have a warranty transfer inspection done and pay the transfer fee within 10 days of purchase.  If you haven't done any of those things I can't imagine why you would expect the repairs to be done by Malibu at no charge.
