History
Purchased Used August 2016 at 38,000 miles
Bad engine at 72,000 Nov 7th, 2018 had to replace put new engine cost me $1,200 Lithia Auto Santa Fe, New Mexico it took them 8 weeks 6 'ft up in the air in Bay 1 to make decision for a new engine installed Jan. 2019 and clear 3 outstanding recalls.
Reason for new engine was Lead Tech Head Mechanics "found metal shavings" in engine from issues w/ parts inside?
Caused by engine turning itself on/off from 4 cylinders to 8 cylinders switching in "Ecoboost mode"?
Lithia put a new PCM Computer and a Serpentine Belt w/ new engine.
Also electrical short in air bags system threw a bunch of Codes that cost me ~$2,000 in Mechanics Labor and installing unnecessary parts due to false codes caused short sending erroneous messages via computer.
Had to clear 2 more Outstanding Recalls since Jan 2019
I have 89,000 now put 17,000 in last 10 months.
"Service Air Bag" system "Message" has been coming on now from front bumper sensor in last 10,000 miles now.
