2012 RXP-X IBR Module Failure
BRP needs to find a new apporach to customer service beyond dismissing their customers issues. Safety should be of primary concern. Failed IBR modules create a dangerous situation, as when they fail at the time of starting the machine, it no longers starts in neutral, it leaps forward, and since the module has failed, both the brake and the reverse do not function either.
First natural response to that forward lurch with this new technology is to grab the brake or try to put it in reverse, but neither will function. All within a second or so wham.....slam leg and foot first into the dock, getting pretty banged up and bloody. The dashboard lights up with all the messages of failure and warnings, but if this is an intermittent electronic failure, when it goes to the dealer for diagnostic, it may not show up.....hence....you are screwed as a customer.
Contacted BRP, filled out a monster "Incident Report" spoke to one person after waiting weeks, and being on hold to reach him for close to 20 minutes......File passed to the next robot....waited more weeks, and finally was called to tell me " Sorry, nothing showed up on the diagnostics.....so we have no proof, and hence....we will do nothing for you" Regardless that the tech from the dealer who picked up the machine saw it with the IBR Gate locked up in the upper position....he decided to tow it to the launch for safety. It was only restated again in the Dealers shop.
Thanks BRP for all the confidence in my brand new 2012 RXP-X.....top of the line machine. I have bought 9 Sea-Doo's over the past 13 yrs, and now have such utter dissapointment in your company and your products.
Shame.....I so love my Sea-Doo.....look forward like crazy to our short summers here in Quebec....home of the manufacturer of the product, and now I start it like a gangster starting his car and hoping it doesnt have a bomb underneath so when the ignition is lit.......KABOOM !!!! or in my case .......KERSLAM!!!
