I ran the car by the local Kragen and he hooked up and checked the battery and alternator...checked okay. On the way home I stopped by Lexus and they wanted $91 for a diagnostic fee.
With the Labor day weekend, no loaners were vailable so I wound up bringing the car home until I can figure out what I want to possibly pay.
It's a pisser, when this thing has repairs it is the not so common ones and expensive. Come-on...a door lock cylinder for $500 and now possibly a starter at $1K.
As second owner of an '85 Cressida, I had typical maintenance things, A/C, alternator, rack & pinion, PS pump...the rarest was when I sheared a keyway on the crankshaft. None of my Toyotas have had to have a starter replaced.
