There's just the one exposed U-joint down inside the engine bay, but I suppose it could go bad. Otherwise it's in the rack itself.

I'm reasonably sure it's actually the isolation washer in the steering column that absorbs vibrations between the electric steering motor and the column itself. I had to replace it on my 2013 last...

I know you're right, but I'd still prefer the 86 in your scenario, and it's hard to believe between two cars, one being a dedicated 2 seater and the other being a 2+2 "baby GT" car that the 2 seater...

Yeah - this might be the main thing these days. So few new cars don't have autolock/unlock anymore, I guess it might seem a little unusual. Even my '01 Echo had that feature. But my wife's '08 Yaris...
