Problem with Timing Chain

2004 Cadillac CTS 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl 5M)

Review

So excited to buy my first Cadillac. Certified pre-owned and have had regular oil changes. Manual says nothing about replacing this chain for the 3.6 engine, but does so for the 3.1. Just out of warranty, and paid off early. Chain broke with no warning whatsoever. Research and mechanics have said this should not have happened at this mileage. In the shop right now and we're up to $2100 and counting. Anyone else had a problem with timing chain? It's just wrong! Dealer is not wanting to make any adjustments, passing me off to corporate office.....very unhappy with my decision to purchase this american car. Between brake and shock problems, it's a regret.
