They're going to replace the engine on the car because bits of the belt got far into the engine? I'm not sure exactly what he meant by it. I'm confused whether or not I should be happy about getting a new engine. Going to head over to the dealer today, and check out the car and see where it's at, maybe I can snap a few more pics to share.
OH NO! Sorry you have to go through this. I'm guessing this was CPO? If so, they should have caught the belts before they certified it. Either way, looks like you will be enjoying a new engine. On the upside you get a new engine. I wonder if the warranty is extended for a new powerplant?
