    Did they tell you why this is happening?
    Usually a melting dipstick is a sign of overheating, are the cylinder fins clean? nothing blocking the air from getting through the engine?
    Mac is a great dealer of ours, I am positive they are taking care of this as well as they can.
    E-mail me if for some reason they are not on top of this.

    PJ, wash every week with water and air, has a bagger unit on it. Honda will give me a motor but I have to pay for the labor to tear the old one down and labor to install the new one. What is the point of a warranty if it does not cover labor??? I contacted the BBB about this but wanted to know if Hustler can help.:dizzy:
