Engine Trouble on 2009 Ford Fusion

Bought my 2009 Ford Fusion in October of 2008. Last Friday the engine began to make a loud hammering sound. I took it to the dealer, and was informed that it needs a new engine. It currently has 33,xxx miles and should still be under the 3 year 36,000 mile warranty. However, I'm still waiting to hear from Ford as to whether or not it will be covered. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

The only things that could hold you up from a warranty repair are:

--lack of maintenance compared with owners manual required
--physical damage to a component that caused failure.

It is essential to maintain records of your oil and filter changes, so that if something like this happens, you are covered.

Let us know what the dealers says. Good luck.
