But maybe he is getting a good insurance settlement which he can live with to cover the repairs. That doesn't mean its over. Just that his insurer wants to keep their customer happy.
No inside knowledge on my part, but in my work we get involved with insurance claims involving all kinds of failures. The insurance company can still go after the manufacturer (called suing for subrogation of claim) so the insurer gets compensated by the manufacturer if the engine failure was proven to be due to a defect. We may never hear the details about this, and the insurer might even hold off for years until sufficient cases occur where it is worth their while to take up the course of legal action. But if they do act someday, they have a lot more resources to put into a legal action than the average buyer.
