Our car is a 2016 that has an oil burn issue. The manufacturer is replacing the engine as they want our engine returned in order to diagnose the oil issue in an effort to head off issues for others. We have only had the car a few months and the issue arose within the first few weeks. We have made a request through the dealer that the manufacturer replace the car but we are waiting on that determination.
If the manufacturer does does agree to replace the car, how will a new engine replacement affect the car’s value? As it will likely be listed in Carfax, we assume potential buyers will likely be hesitant to purchase the car.
