Catastrophic Failures?

I was on another forum I frequently visit, and one of the members posted that his friend's 2012 EB Flex had a catastrophic failure. All the info he had was that two impellers came loose on both turbos are grenaded the engine. I gotta say it sounds a little fishy given the Ecoboost reputation so far. Any one else heard anything about this?...or any other big failures of any kind?

They were not sure' date=' they sent the engine back to FORD. It was knocking and hammering very bad and the CEL never came on. They had my car for a month and a half, then after I got it back, a day later a transmission line blew apart and left me stranded... they had it for a week longer.[/quote']

 

How many miles? That sounds like a nightmare, hope they at least gave you a good loaner car during this.

Oh God. Sounds like my last visit to a dealer for a recall on another car. A freakin' nightmare for sure. Very frustrating when you they keep promising they have a handle on things, don't, and you have to keep going back.:RpS_rolleyes:

 

Hope you ride is good now Tony.
