Some of you don't really understand what a lemon is by law. They vary slightly from state to state, but in general they usually require multiple repairs for the same component on the same car in a certain span of time.

Now, if his crank cracked 2 or 3 more times, that would most likely be a lemon by law.

But as it is now, although it's very inconvenient and rather catastrophic, it's still nothing more than a warranty repair.

You need to fight for a brand new engine. If it requires you call a lawyer, do it. You have 6k miles on the car, and it's not due to abuse (unless you've been driving without oil for a week).

If GM insists on giving you a used engine, tell them you want $10,000.00 on top of that to make up for the accelerated depreciation of a car with an engine that has more miles on it than the odometer shows.
