Car is 2011 but still a baby in terms of mileage at 71k. Thank you for the shop recommendations Ill definitey take a look. I had a friend take a look at was told there is basically no leak but some seepage. With that price tag it has to be a pretty severe leak with puddles under the car for me to want to do repairs. Think I will take it in for a second opnion next time around. Thank you very much!I have located several hybrid car shops in Los Angeles, which is where you will want to take your car to.

There are many of them, just call around and check the prices.
Definitely their price should be much less than what the dealer is charging. Its only a gasket.
One thing I am thinking also is that you should change your head gasket at the same time.
How many miles are on your car and what year is your car?
If you have significant miles on your car I would consider changing the head gasket as the same time if possible. (Just a thought).
