Small update. Haven’t been able to speak with a mechanic. I was able to strike a “deal” with the warranty company. Putting in a brand new engine, they’re paying the $3000 they say their engine costs (I’d love to see their invoice but they said it’s “internal information,” because when I look at LKQ’s 3.5L engines online, they’re all high $4000 or $5000 depending on mileage), I’m paying remaining $3000 for they new engine, they’re covering all the rest of labor and miscellaneous b.s. Don’t love it, but better than nothing.
NOW the service manager tells me that they’re on backorder, and he has NFC when they’ll be back. My engine, they say, has been escalated to the level above “emergency”, he called it COPAS or something like that.
Thankfully my mom let me borrow her extra vehicle, but it’s putting a major cramp in my summer plans not having the expy.
So you have a warranty and still have to pony up $3k just to avoid a junkyard engine? JFC. :x
