Be careful. That prices sounds like you might be getting something used, just waiting to blowDealer says $5,000 to replace engine short block. It is 4 cylinder, 2.6L with 80K miles on it. Not sure whether it is worth to spend it or not.
Dealer did not give me a reason for failure. Just say it could be some internal failure and it is not under warranty. No warning signs at all. While driving on interstate highway, suddenly heavy smoke came and engine not responding. I very rarely hit 4k rpm...normally drive between 2k to 3k rpm.
What are the common causes for engine crack? What questions should I ask them? Could it be a manufacturing defect, which can be covered (but deals says they do not, but how come an engine fail so badly risking injuries)?
Appreciate your insights.
