But the G110 had problems well documented in these forums. The G110v2 corrected those problems and offered enhanced power, torque, and longevity that the G110 did not have. The G110v2 has access ports to change out the carbon brushes, and a spare set of those brushes are even included in the package. When a polisher manufacturer includes spare brushes, it shows an expectation that the machine will run for years to come.
Meguiars is very good about replacing polishers should an inherent manufacturing problem arise. The key is not to get impatient and crack the case of your polisher in an attempt to fix it yourself. Nor should you take it to a 3rd party repair shop. Those actions will void the warranty.
As for the one year warranty, it's actually quite common among polisher manufacturers, both rotary and DA. DeWalts and Makitas come with a standard one year warranty. I wish Meguiars would consider offering a 3 year limited warranty, like the kind you get when you buy a car battery or tire:
1st year: 100% replacement
2nd year: 50% credit applied to the purchase of a replacement polisher
3rd year: 25% credit applied to the purchase of a replacement polisher.
But the G110v2 is still an excellent machine.
