2017 Front Valve Cover Gasket

I just purchased a 2017 QX60 and discovered it is leaking oil. I took it back to the dealer and was told that the front valve cover gasket is leaking and needs to be replaced. That seems awful early for a 2017 with only 30k miles? Any issues with these?

Agree, that is early. My '13 has +120k and doesn't have that problem, but my wife's 2006 M35 (same engine) needed one (also around 120k). The job costs around $1600. Hopefully it's covered under warranty.

Got this car from carmax. I've had it less than a week. They first told me it needed a new front valve gasket but when they took it apart they noticed that their was sludge in the engine. They recommend that we returned the car with CarMax's 7 day return policy and found something else. I asked about fixing the issue and they said the only solution was the replace the entire engine which I could have them do since it is still under their warranty. The engine work would be done by the Infiniti dealer on CarMax's dime unless Infiniti decided it was covered by manufacturers warranty. We have no service records on the car.

Soooo the question is do you...
1)Return the car and find another one?
2)Keep the car and get a new free engine?

What do you guys think?
