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.
