First, yes it is illegal to change the odometer on the car unless it has malfunctioned.

Second, they aren't going to roll it back because the only new component is the engine, the rest of the vehicle still is covered under the original warranty and those first 5100 miles are still wear and tear on the vehicle.

Who cares about 5k miles! Brand new engine is the BEST way to go in this situation. It's good to see GM step up and do the right thing. :cheers
Keep your paper work, all of it, and it won't make a difference if you decide to sell down the road.

Something told me 1qt every 1000 miles wasn't just a gasket! :eek:

Told you so !!! Congrats. More than likely the cylinder WALL was out of round. I had 4 out of 8 out of round top to bottom by .001

Now, you'll see that baby come complete with all accessories even the valve covers and oil filler cap. Enjoy :D
