    There were problems with the starters on the earlier model scouts. Went through issues like you describe on my 2016 scout and had starter replaced under warantee. Thought the issue was fixed for later models, but maybe a dud one slipped through. Would be talking to your dealer.

    Sounds similar the issue I had on a 2017 Scout 60, turns out there is a TSB on this, they will replace the starter if it is under warranty. The new starter took care of my issues on my Scout.
