As I commented above, it did bother me that I was not contacted immediately after my engine was imploded by the dealership. It does make me question their integrity just a bit.
So I decided maybe a call directly to FORD to verify what I am being told might not be a bad idea.
I just got off the phone with Ashley @ FORD (great customer service rep!), and although it took a bit of time, she was able to verify factually that a new engine is indeed being installed.
