On the Vita-mix site they have a refurbished model 5200..anyone buy these refurbished. I really need a Vita-mix and heard some stories that people have done well buying a used one..but with that kind of money, you want to make sure you purchase it right the first time...not sure if I should just go brand new and bit the bullet.

I don't frequent this site often, but I can answer your question. I bought a refurbished Vita-Mix a little over 4 years ago, and it's still going strong. I got a great deal on it too. Vita-Mix makes a great product, and they back up their product with a solid warranty. Even the refurbished models get a 7 year warranty (new ones have 10 years). I've even traveled with mine on a plane twice. If you really don't want to or can't spring for a new one, there's really no problem with getting a refurbished model. It works just the same as a new one. You're not getting a lesser product by doing so. Some people just prefer to get new.
Hope that helps. :)

I bought a refurbished one about 2 years ago off the vitamix site. I paid $299 and got all the extras and the normal warranty (7 yrs, I think?) along with free shipping. I use my vitamix all the time and it works like a charm. I love it and don't know how I ever managed without it.
