I thought you guys were being negative... then I looked at it...

so the ENTIRE hybrid drivetrain had to be replaced, right? Wouldn’t it have been a whole lot easier to start with a GS350? Or just get a GS460?

It is, but it's not the only car brand we care about. We also don't care if someone bought their car at CarMax or not.
