Automatics now get better gas mileage, people don't know how to drive a stick, and in heavy traffic an automatic is more convenient.

There you go.

The 328 series are not hard to DIY. You have some stuff to get out of the way before many procedures, but that's not technically difficult.

I'm not sure where the alarm in post #2 comes from. Cars get hot, and that isn't a fault. I see no particular reason to be alarmed.

Not sure what the "smoke" is about. It could be that the...

Glad your daughter is OK!

I can't think of anything short of a Baja racer that would have survived going over that boulder. Looks like she went WAY into the woods.

The only things that can trip the alarm should be the pad wear sensor on the LF corner and the ABS sensors. I suspect the former, and it's really easy to replace.

I'm sure the dealer wants it to...

Well, no more ideas here.

If it's any consolation at all, you're not the first to do this. Try searching the forums for info, as it has been discussed before.

Go for it. No on's crystal ball can tell you what's going to happen. If possible, get service info and check its history through a dealer - YOU can do that with the VIN.

I get less than that because I enjoy acceleration. You must take it fairly easy at stop lights.
