Stick with the brand that provides the best local service to you. As wdlfbio mentioned, make sure you have access to good fuel if you go with Suzuki as they are not a fan of 87 octane. The Mercury V8 was designed to run on 87 octane fuel.
That is exactly what I have been reading. I guess that is due to the higher compression? Since last night I have read of a few issues some owners have had with the 350s. thank you for the input!!!
