Re: got screwed at the used car lot
If you bought it from a GM dealer, I'd say you've got a beef with them for selling it with a used engine. If you bought it from another kind of dealer and they sold it touting that it still has a power train warranty, then I'd say you've got a beef with them. Not sure you'd make either of those things stick, however.
If it is a used engine, not original, then you're likely on your own, unfortunately. I doubt GM is going to honor the warranty on an engine they didn't put in there. The only reason it would get a used engine while under the power train warranty would be that the engine failed due to improper maintenance, or possibly the person simply didn't know about the warranty. I can't think of another reason.
At any rate, it stinks. Hopefully you can get it worked out without it costing you too much.
