I took my 2007 (5000 miles only) car into the dealer for a recent factory recall to replace the value springs. 200 miles later the engine blew up (value apparently dropped down on top of a piston) putting a hole in the side of the block. The interior of the car filled up with smoke. The dealer has been quick to replace the short block which took about a month. They gave me a free loaner.
My question, is the car worth less and am I likely to have problems because this major work was not done at the factory?
Thank you in advance, Fred
