My V6 update

As a few may know my POS CTS with the V6 decided to window the block on my way to Indy. Thanks GM, but the worst part is the car is still in OH at some Amish dealership. Seriously how long does it take to put in a new motor. The car only had 6k on it? Yes, I should have seen this coming, this was the most gutless car I have ever owned.

So, is anyone looking for gently used caddy with a new motor, assuming I ever get it back?

No, it doesn't but GM has to get this engine right if they want to sell. It's available or will be available in the CTS, STS, Traverse, Acadia, Outlook, Enclave, G8 ST, Camaro...

Yes, not sure what caused it. The dealer is about as sharp as a pregnant trout.

Under warranty then. Thank God. Still not convenient though. Nor a good sign.

It's under warranty, but he mentioned something about putting in a used motor, I told him it would be a cold day in hell before that happened. I guess we'll see what happens.

I don't know that much about engines but cranks don't usually break on a whim. All i can think of is that that particular crank had a bad spot in it, not balanced properly, or a leprechan jumped in there and beat it with a hammer. Thats BS that they would try to put a used motor in a brand new car. I feel for ya man, good luck.

GM is trying to put in a used motor, b/c according to them this car is not a lemon.
