Now I follow you Jack.

I didn't think you were dismissing the tech....but most will assume the dealer is trying to rip you off.....and I would agree in most cases, but I do trust this dealer but I am not sure what can or will go wrong with the immobilizer. I bought this particular car because it has a very good history of maintenance....though it needs to be caught up. The vehicle has never been in a accident according to Carfax....which is not the all knowing god of vehicle history but a very good start....there doesn't appear to be any major flaws with the car.

And I certainly do not want to be stranded because I bought this for my commuter vehicle (100 miles round trip daily).

I appreciate all the help!!!!!
