Are you a recent EV buyer (past 3 months) as a result of manufacturer incentives and dealer discounts on these vehicles, including year-end deals? Were you convinced to buy an EV after finding a good end-of-year deal, or due to uncertainty around which EVs will no longer qualify for full/partial EV tax credits in 2024?

Overheated Engine Replacement
Everything works on it except a broken off power antenna, no rust anywhere, and 115,000 miles. It is the Mark Cross Edition, so it is loaded.
I got some prices on-line from below:
I'm assuming when an engine overheats, it is from the top down, so most likely it is a cracked head. The price for a remanufactured head is $196 + $150 core deposit. However, if the whole engine is bad, that would run $1,366 + $270 core. Add labor to both for the installation.
Does this seem like a good idea, or should I let him junk it?
