I continue to make poor used purchase choices and sell things I never should sell. It's nothing new for me...this time I bought a lemon knowing there was a risk, but foolishly thinking that Nikon had solved this issue since the manufacture of this particular camera and I wouldn't have the focus problem. Unfortunately, I am not rich and every time I make a stupid mistake I lose a lot of money in the process.
I don't want to sound rude, but what does Nikon have to do with a used camera you purchased with absolutely NO record of how it was used prior to you getting it? If the body your purchased was manufactured in the Serial Number Range affected by the issue, what made you believe that yours wasn't affected? And... How do you know that your body doesn't have something else wrong with it? You really don't. And, Nikon won't have any responsibility or warranty with a used body you purchased from someone else in a condition that was unknown to you and you shouldn't have any expectation of such responsibility either.
I heard there was an issue with some AF thing, but because that issue has never affected me once due to the fact that I almost never use AF on my two D800's, I never even bothered to send them in or even have them checked.
When it gets time for me to sell these, I will tell the buyer that fact and if they buy them, they are to know that I have NEVER sent them in for a fix and that they "Might" be affected by this issue.
My advise to you is, once you get this problem solved, don't sell it unless you don't have to. In the future, ask for a reasonable Return Policy, if the seller doesn't offer one or declines one, maybe this might not be the body for you.
I have declined to purchase several D4's this year due to different issues, Price, Payment Options and such, I did buy three D4 bodies here and I was pleased, but I do a lot of research!! I got bit once, I ended up returning the lens, it was defective!! I told him, he either took the lens back or I would ask for a Refund from both Paypal and AMEX!!
That is the reason why I deal with Paypal, and in the future, no more Gift Payments either, the deal must be a killer deal for me to risk something bad happening. Not worth loosing the protection Paypal offers.
I wish you good luck and I hope the body is repaired in a satisfactory manner and that you won't have to pay too much to get it fixed.
