Was it REALLY cracked (= pieces apart) and scarred (= cut scratches from mishandling) or was it those "knit marks" from injection molding process discussed here which are really not cracks?
The reason might be they are all the same and replacing would not make you any happier. Like some expert stated they will get rid of the marks by fine tuning the molding process in the future.
