1. Outdoors I purchased a Craftsman lawn tractor in March of 2011. I have had it for just over two years. It stopped running about 3 weeks ago while I was mowing. I called to set up a service call and they came today and informed me that my engine was blown and that I would have to replace it. I am out of the warranty period. Is there anything else that can be done? its a new mower. I spent good money, banking on the quality that I percieved with the Craftsman brand and now I am out $2000 and have to buy a new mower. Not happy right now.
