One blow up does NOT lead to a recall.

Good luck to the OP.

Exactly what I'm wondering. Sucks, but you're out of warranty. Case closed.

Not at all. Companies will sometimes cover or help on failures out of warranty.

Did you notice anything wrong with your car before the failure? Any unusual noises coming from the engine after the car was at full operating temperature?

My car drives fine, great actually, you would never think anything to be wrong, minus the fact that it's making noises that I'm concerned about and will be taking it to my dealer ASAP.

PS: 07/08 build date
