Here is another one of those story's about Apple doing the right thing. I had a 2012 15" RMBP with a fan issue (buzzing, scratching and dings), I had it repaired in Dec of 14. Two weeks later the same issue happened again, but I could not sent the machine in for repair as it is my daily driver for work. I delt with the issue for a year.. While the computer never overheated, the fans were just making a constant buzzing noise. I finally had time to bring it in over the holiday this year. The machine was sent to the repair depot in Houston for the fan issue and it turns out they replaced both fans and the logic board. I got the computer back on 12/24 and on 12/26 the the right fan motor went completely dead and the left fan began to spin erratically up to 6k rpm down to 3k, back up to 4k, etc. Immediately went back to the apple store and they offered to replace the entire machine with a brand new 2015 RMBP before I could even ask. Apple Care proved to be well worth the investment again. The 2012 was a refurb that I bought sometime in 2013. I know Apple refurbs are held to a high standard, but this experience was enough to never make me purchase a refurb from Apple again.
