So what WOULD have happened had you taken Lexus at its word? Would the CEL have magically reappeared? If so, what would you predict Lexus's response would be? Would Lexus have learned more from the...

Can you shed any light on what the buyer's thoughts on the warranty were? It's transferable and reimbursable, right? So why wouldn't the buyer pay you the $1,500 for the warranty, then cash it in...
