Engine Mechanical problem
2005 Cadillac STS 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90500 miles
I was driving home yesterday and my car started chugging a little on the high way, once I encountered some heaving rain my vehicle died and wouldn't start again. I had the car towed to the dealership to look at it. They called back and said, there was an issue with my timing belt, causing pistons to missfire. They told me my engine was worthless and cheapest estimates of repair was around $5k to replace the engine. Does this happen alot, or is something I should get a second opinion on?
