Yeah, I'm a bit disappointed with my Stihl, I've got an 056 Magnum. I'm not a contractor so it doesn't get used heavily, anyway, it shat a big end bearing after the warranty period expired and the best that Stihl would do, eventually that is, after I badgered them enough, was replace the part but I still had to pay for labour. It cost me about half the price of the saw to repair it. Boy was I angry! If I have to get a new saw I'll be buying Husky, I've used them with the local emergency service crew and I was quite happy with them.
