Are you 100% sure that the CarMax warranty will cover the IMS issue? I'm in the same boat and called them a few minutes ago, and they had to get back to me about the IMS. Not to mention, I'd need it...

I'll consider them as well. CarMax is another one to consider as they have $2400 for UP TO - 5yr/ 75k miles, but that will vary per each car. But of course another caveat is you have to purchase the...
