Instead of maintenance he should have gotten extended warranty. Something sounds fishy on his behalf. Leaving to much info out and the dealer isn't doing anything wrong showing him a bill for an out of warranty car.

Only way you're likely getting out of this for less than $19k is getting your hands dirty. Buy a used engine (5k), do the job yourself. I doubt you're getting good willed 30,000 miles out of warranty.
