I felt much the same way, although I put my concerns aside in a compromise for the deal I got on the car.
That being said, I have to say that if you have the DAS software and multiplexer, troubleshooting and fault diagnosis is amazingly simple on these cars. You pretty much plug the computer in, run the diagnostics, and it tells you what’s wrong (or not) and allows you to reset any fault codes. The DAS software even gives you the links to the repair procedures and suggests possible problems based on the fault. It also gives you the ability to alter operating parameters as well. I made some simple changes on my car so it thinks it was delivered to a hot part of the world. As a result of the changes, my engine runs a bit cooler and my AC is a lot more efficient. If you don’t have the DAS, you’re pretty much left to guess at the problem.
