Would you get an appliance if you couldn't get parts?
I am sorry if this is a stupid question but I have never gotten any major appliances online (b/c I wanted them to be "service-able" locally) and don't know the logistics.
It turns out that the only dealer around here who used to carry Gaggenau appliances, has discontinued the line b/c they couldn't get parts (IDK why).
I have read many reports here about buying from AJ Madison, Ebay, and others. Let's assume that the product is not a "lemon" and is purchased from an authorized out-of-state dealer.
We all know that any appliance may need service and/or parts down the road.
What happens then?
