 Description of the problemMy vehicle started using a lot of oil and was losing power upon acceleration. I had read online that there were problems with the engine and i kept hoping for a recall. However, the recall hasn't happened and i am almost at 100,000 miles. My car started making a ticking noise when i would accelerate and i had just had the oil changed 3 weeks before. I checked the oil and it was already very low. I took it to the dealer and the dealer says that the engine needs to be replaced and if i can give them at least 13 receipts they'll replace it under the warranty that i purchased. I drive all over town for work and i have my oil changed wherever i may be. I went to the two places that i have gone most frequently but, one of them switched their computer systems 3 months ago and only has records for the last three months and the other place changed ownership a year ago and only has 2 receipts for this year. They're saying that i have to pay for it out of pocket.
