Default 2001 L200 Rough Idle Update

Hi All,

Last week I posted that my '01 L200 was idling rough and the fan was racing.
I brought the car to the local dealer hoping it was the ignition/plugs recall, but they told me that they discovered the timing chain was loose and my valves had been bent. A $2,800 dollar repair!

After the intial shock wore off I called them back. Without my asking, they said they are willing to split the cost because of the low mileage on the car. (28,500miles - Out of Warranty on Time - No Extended Warranty)

It seems fair.... but why would they be so eager to split it? Could there be a defect in this product?

Any comments and ideas much appreciated.

I would say it is most definitly a defect, I can't believe that car would just have a rough idle if the valves were bent, but thats just me... Might want to stick this over in Tech Talk so you can the opinions from some of the experts.
