That's the problem. If you drove that truck, then everyone would know that's the vehicle you're dealing on.
Steelrat said he got the mower for less than retail, by $8 or 900, so that would more than compensate for the rusty areas and 2 hours on the hour meter.
IMO, I'd buy a mower for that much less, since I know a can of spray paint and I'm back to having a new mower.
Chalk it up to a lack of communication, nothing that the dealer NOR the buyer did wrong.
