yes it is a problem
I had to replace my 1st one at 5500 miles.
The switch began to disintegrate , replaced, began leaking after another 2000 miles, removed, made gasket, applied small amount of sealer, worked for another 2500 miles.
Ordered another, I am on my 3rd now, I buy them from Boats.net Neutral safety switch part # 93210-29196-00 O-Ring, switch pert # 1L9-82540-00-00 .
My mechanic told me it was plastic material switch is made from does not like synthetic oil.
If you replace, DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE SCREWS!!!!!!
I can change one out in less than 30 minutes.
Takes longer to carefully make the gasket.
