John Deere Sucks
L-111 Lawn Tractor - Complaint
SPRING GROVESPRING GROVE, ILLINOIS -- I bought a JD l-111 lawn tractor because I fell for their bs about it being a quality product that Wii last a lifetime, well the one I bought had a very short life span before the transmission died and JD wanted one thousand eighty dollars plus tax to fix a lawn tractor that had only been gently used for five seasons and serviced by a JD dealer every year since it was purchased. We complained to JD corporate but they were less sympathetic than the local dealer. JD corporate basically said too bad, your warranty expired, go suck an egg or pay up to fix it. They wouldn't even offer to assist in our dealings with the dealer, saying the dealers are independent and JD policy is that they don't get in between dealers and customers. Don't you just love a company that stands so firmly behind their products? I thought spending more up front to buy so called quality would save me more in the long run. Boy was I wrong about that and about JD quality. I am now the not so proud owner of a green and yellow boat anchor. Think twice before they suck you into their bs about quality.
