2007 Infiniti QX56 Question: Need a new engine

blowing a lot of smoke when I start the car, Infiniti claims that since I never had the oil changed that the whole engine needs to be replaced. The car runs great except for the smoke coming out the back when started. -

I have a 2008 and I am having the same problem and of course because it would have been warranty work they told me that the vehicle hasn't been maintained and when I first told them about it it only had 43k miles on it and that they wouldn't honor the warranty. Its also a qx56 -
