Did you buy that one that has been on MD Craigslist for the past few weeks? Or were you the seller?

Man, I wouldn't have touched that car if it were given to me for free. Considering all of the electronic controls/ECUs used in a standard GS, let alone a hybrid battery version, the likelihood of resolving all of the electrical issues that will come up due to water intrusion would cause me to run away as fast as I could. Even if you get it running properly, that damage is likely to keep popping up in different systems for years to come as the corrosion takes hold. Good luck.
