Default 2008 Saturn Outlook Timing Chain

I bought a 2008 Outlook a year and half ago. I have already put in $1000 in repairs and now have found the Timing Chain is skipping a tooth and needs a replacement, a $3000 fix. I am sick to my stomach. I love my car but can't afford to fix.

Does anyone know why it is that the TSB for the timing chain failure excludes the 2008 model year? This seems to be a common problem on these engines.
My car was built in 3/2008 most likely with 2007 parts. It has the same engine and specs as the 2007 and 2009s, the ones that GM will fix for free.

When I search for parts at GMParts direct, the 2007, 2008, and 2009 timing chains are the exact same part number. What is different that GM will not extend coverage to 10yrs 120k miles for my vehicle for these parts, but it will for 2007 and 2009?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
