    Shit like this is why fords stock is in the toilet. I have a 12 year old nissan armada with 135K miles that is more reliable than my 2017 GT 350.

    So even with new car warranty, even if you can get a new engine installed at no cost, you still have to deal with shits like this. To those who thinks "getting a new engine isn't a problem under warranty, might even be a good thing", this is the real world.

    If this happened to my car, the only thing I could accept is a buyback. There is no 'fix' to make me believe the engine is installed properly.

    Exactly, I thought it was a good way to let him know I wasn't going to let bulshit fly.

    Love seeing your comments, especially some of you who are in shock. It some ways, its "refreshing" for me. Because generally, this is all I expect from turnstile dealerships. So to me, it was merely a confirmation of expectation.

    I picked it up, because its a holiday weekend, and there was some shadiness about keeping the car around. I will bring the car back for vibration on 1st and second and coolant smell that won't go away. (possibly cracked reservoir). I will then call back the lemon law attorneys and see if we have a case. I really don't want this car. If i'm stuck with it, I'll be fine but I rather not.

    That being said, there's something different about this motor, the power band feels slightly different on the butt dyno. It's still a new motor, so I have to give it time, feels powerful, but different. Also, the 2k-3k piston slap noise is very muted and different. However, more vibrations are introduced through the stick on 1st and 2nd. Seems like different harmonics too, sounds more like the sound of a "seashell" slowly increasing in intensity. Again, more driving is needed, but this car maybe back in the shop for a few weeks.

    Exactly. And while we often debate the value of a car that has had an engine replaced, think of the value of one that's had paint work and other stuff seen above.

    Thanks, you guys are absolutely right. You shouldn't see this on any Ford service, but even less on a "Halo" car for Ford.

    So the warranty thing is kind of BS. You have a 5 yr 60K mile power train. If you took a 7 yr 100K mile power train you only get 2 yrs extra and 40K miles.

    As far as the general warranty that is only 2 yrs on top of fords factory warranty.

    Its not like they will let u stack a warranty on the back of your factory warranty, they run concurrently.

    Kind of bullshit.

    Are people getting extended warranties out of these situations? it seems to me that extending the powertrain as far as possible will certainly help resale value, especially for those who are concerned about buying these cars in 2-4 years from now. That's why I personally bought an extended warranty myself. And it's transferable of course, so it puts the buyer somewhat at ease (hopefully).

    Yes you can easily get an extended warranty out of an engine replacement . they've already offered it to me.
