Totally with you on the trade in value. The dealership does state that I would be eligible to get an extended warranty after the repair so maybe I’ll see what that looks like then decide. But yah I am in talk with them to extend loaner to me too for the two week period. Once I get that then I’ll let them begin the work on it. Can’t beat a new engine for $4000.

Remember to ask for your Lincoln Access Rewards on your $4000.00 engine. That should equate to 40,000 points x .005=$200.00 redeemable toward future services such as maintenance costs, parts, or can be applied toward your next Lincoln. Furthermore, I would put the $4000.00 charge on a Lincoln Access Rewards Visa and get another 20,000 points x .005=$100.00 reward (that is when you spend $3000.00 total in the first 3 months, that is accomplished!). 0% financing for the first 6 months. 11,000 points given on first purchase = $55.00 . There is a lot more benefits offered also, but I think you get the idea. Hope all goes well with the engine replacement. Glad to read you have already replaced the transmission. I wonder if the new engine has been modified so this failure will not happen again.

That's a great point @Photon! I will definitely be asking for LAR as every little bit helps. I also tried to look into applying for the card but get an error message so I will look a bit later.

Happy Thanksgiving y'all! Wanted to give everyone another update. Picked up the car back on Wednesday before Thanksgiving and everything drives well. The total came out to be just under $3100 after Lincoln's portion and dealership coupon. I did went ahead and got a new credit card to get that new card bonus, although I could never got Lincoln's application to load, so I got the Marriott Boundless to earn some hotel nights. I think I did alright all things considered for a brand new engine without warranty coverage...

... I don't plan the keep the car much longer after 100K (it's at 82,200 now), and after factoring everything (used car market, new car availability, don't want to start a car payment with wife's car much older), I ended up take up the dealership's 'offer' to get the extended warranty with a decent discount for 3yr/36,000 mi. I want a hassle-free ownership for the rest of the time I have with the MKC, and I think this is the best way forward.

Thanks for everyone's advice and thoughts. Really appreciate all the angles, and I am definitely chalking this one up as an expensive lesson. Although I suppose it could've been much more expensive.
