What a terrific day

So driving my fofo on some nice back roads and all of a sudden the piston starts violently knocking,pull over call roadside assistance and take it to ford and all they managed to do today was try to find excuses not to fix it,
Ps:took off all aftermarket parts except exhaust and springs to make my life a little easier.

I'm so fed up with Ford dealer service!!! Don't worry a nice friendly Ford Represenative will be "happy to escalate your case for you." Which most likely will do nothing. All the dealer has To do is deny hearing or finding anything. It's obsurd the sort of blatant denial that is going on at certain dealerships. Oh yea, they'll be happy to contact the Ford hotline which will instruct them to test drive a similar vehicle on the lot. Which once done will then conclude, "it's a characteristic of the vehicle"!

Yeah I called them today and they told me what I already knew,I need a new motor,and they are "waiting for approval from ford".my 23,967 miles 2012 full warranty focus with service package needs approval to be fixed,nothing wrong here right,and they won't even give me a loaner until they get the approval,I'm sorry but when I go to buy another car I hate to say it it will not be a ford or at least a ford dealership cause they are the worst.

That sucks man, sorry to hear that. I'd be super pissed in your position. Not only that but how does a motor under 25k grenade?! What's your driving style? Maybe the mod additions on an already lean motor tune from the factory took its toll? To my recollection there's still no tune for this car. Good move by removing said parts prior to dealer hassles.

Ill be honest I have an aggressive driving style that's why I have the mods to suit me but I didn't beat the car I barely ever pushed it hard,they said they would fix it under warranty but don't know if they will replace or repair,but the only way to repair would be to bore it out cause it has metal shavings in the oil and everything,idk they're still being annoying about my loaner.

Oh yeah I was just saying I'm glad they don't have one yet cause I already would've had the tune on if it was available
