Precor treadmills - all models - truly garbage.
I've been a certified Precor service tech for about 9 years now. Our company has made thousands of dollars off repairing their treadmills and ellipticals. They are just like Mercedes. They cost a lot and break down a lot. They generally put out their products without proper testing, as a result, the machines keep breaking down and have to keep getting upgrades.
Luckily, if the repair falls under the "upgrade category" you might be lucky and won't have to pay for the repair, except having your time wasted.
We all think they're over priced, and you're really paying for the long parts warranty. Even the Chinese made treadmills and ellipticals are better and cheaper than Precor these days.
Thank you for keeping us employed Precor. Please continue to design crappy over priced machines and please don't test them properly like your competitors.
On a positive note, they are good while they work.
