I'd start with a complete fluid change. You probably have some ruined sensors that need to be replaced (no idea where to start there), assuming no water got into the block. Is the CEL on?

Never buy the first generation of anything, you're just testing the technology for v2.0. I'd buy an autonomous car in a heartbeat once everything has been out for a while and proven itself.

Agreed, and it seems to me that it's a dying art. Most people don't like doing it nowadays, and this is shown with the rise of the "fair price" no-haggle dealerships like CarMax.
