My only concern with buying a used 86 is how these cars are designed to be driven. The motor needs to be kept in the higher RPMs for any real spirited driving. The car just begs to be slid around. ...

I may be incorrect, but I'm not sure the dealership has any say on warranty work. They request warranty approval from a 3rd person not affiliated with that dealership.
