So similar story to all the other ones here, car ordered in Jan 21, 4dr Black Diamond, October build, delivered early November, car has 1700 miles - Driving in a highway, racket starts, manage to pull over, wouldn't restart.

Dealer called, dropped valve, engine replacement needed.

I was on the road, so car is at a dealer about 30 miles from my house, that has been very nice, but i don't know at all.

So what are the options that people have been following? I did place a call to Customer Service, but they will take a few days to follow up.

I have owned a lot of cars, and this has never happened to me before - so advise welcome.

Thanks

1. Call Ford customer service, elevate with them to get engine priority and your expenses covered

2. Know your state lemon law, take notes of everything. Keep journal

3. Get engine production label pic from mechanic, update the thread with date produced (engine)

4. Be patient🥺

Advise should include reading everything on the blown 2.7 threads.
For one thing, I didn't realize until recently that the blown engine can result in metal particles getting into exhaust components and other areas that can be a major problem later.
If Ford doesn't address that during the repairs then folks should just lemon law these Broncos.

Son of a b****. @Ford Motor Company needs to address this before someone gets seriously injured.

I’m sitting in a restaurant right now with my wife and two kids nervous about driving my 2.7L bronco with 1500 miles home.
