I don't know what price is being talked about for the machine in question. If it is hugely lower than the cost of a brand new one, then you are in all likelihood probably still quids in either way.Not really, they'll want a fortune for warranty. In which case it will look cheaper to put money in bank and spend it on repairs if or when it breaks down.
i HAVE TO AGREE, IF DEALER WONT STAND BY IT AT ALL, EVEN FOR MONTHS THEN ITS A TURD, ops caps, if they had any confidence at all they would give some sort of warranty and then even at cost they have to go away to consider it!, looks like this model have issues i would run a mile, it will only disappoint you in the future and make you regret the purchase.Not really, they'll want a fortune for warranty.

Suggest you have a read of these past threads and message various members if you want details:Looking at buying JD 8345rt which has had two major autopower fixes / replacements and rear transmission rebuild. The gearbox has had the latest fix to ensure it doesn't fail again. It's the right money and very tidy but should I buy or walk?
I think you are right. Also even if you take out a finance package no mater how small they have a responsibility I was told by my finance guy.I think the dealer has to give a warranty by law, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 gives you a strong position on all used equipment. If you google it and have a read through it might give you a bit of ammunition to go back to the dealer, you might find they respond differently once you mention this. I hope this is helpful.
