Here are some pics of cylinder #8 and #2. #8 has more scoring. They are in odd locations of the cylinder and no one knows why.

Sad to read about this. I've seen pistons on motors with over 125,000 miles look better than those

rk88 What happened after you took it to the dealer? I have a 2018 PP with the RPM rattle as well.

To start off, the rattle has grown louder and can be heard during almost the whole RPM range + all gears. I'm only at 6000 miles.

It's been a marathon. 5 visits to two dealerships have yielded nothing. 4 out of the 5 visits they labeled it as "Could not diagnose" even after I have demonstrated it on demand at all times. The 1 time they attempted a fix, it was to replace the intake manifold. The new intake made no difference at all. Currently working with a lawyer under the lemon law for a buyback.

RK88 go beat the snot out of your car until that engine lets go. At least then you will get a whole new engine.

You guys please let us know the build date on your door jam sticker.

I have the same rattle in my 2019 Mustang GT manual at 2200 rpm most noticeable in 2 and 3 gears. It's only done 1700km. Took it to two different dealers in New Zealand and both have said it's normal for performance cars. They even said that the Ford Ranger manual has the same gearbox sound. What a load of BS....
I see that you got your cylinder heads imaged. Was the damage to the cylinders quite obvious in the images? I am going to ask the dealer to get some imaging done on my GT as well. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Soul crushing to find out that your new car has a major fault. Hoping for a resolution though.

Do you have any advice for getting to a Ford Buyback position?
I have a 2019 GT with PP1 and I took it to the dealer yesertday and they said that everything was fine. I call BS on them as the car never made that noise the day they took my 42K when I drove it off the lot.

I need help with the process of trying to get it resolved or bought back. Should I get 3 different dealer opinions to start with?

Thanks in advance
Chris

Update: Been working with dealer in North Atlanta, GA in regards to the engine rattle/knock. Dealership opened up a case with Ford Engineering about 2 weeks ago and it was dropped off this morning for more extensive testing.
This afternoon I received a call from the service representative telling me that a new engine was ordered as they found metallic debris in the oil filter.
Mileage on the clock this morning was 1787,7 miles, and I first started hearing the issue right at about 1000 miles.
Just hoping the new motor is not from the same lot build as the other...

Update: Took to local Ford dealer on Friday 6/14/19 for full engine replacement. Received call on 6/18/19 letting me know my car is complete. Currently on vacation and will not be able to pickup until this coming weekend. Asked dealer to take photos of old engine serial/stamp number and new serial/stamp number for my records. Also will be trying to contact someone at Ford in regards to the engine swap as now my GT has lost value since it is not original anymore. There is a now diminised value on my 3 month old Mustang GT.

Does anyone have any experience or a contact in handling a diminised value claim for warranty work with Ford Motor Corp?

This is exactly what I was wondering about. You will probably have to get a lawyer. Please keep us updated. What is the build date on your door jam sticker?
