Thanks and no offense taken.
I went to the dealer thinking that would be the best quality repair. They charged me $300 to check it and then, at first, $2,000+ to repair it. I was pissed off and left, but later emailed that I wanted their estimate in writing....they replied that it was discontinued and the new model would be over $4k. That's the whole story, and yes, he saw a rube coming a mile away.
