Big rainfall one day, following all other cars, went through 10-12" water in road, car was out of the puddle when it stalled. Dealer says the intake is in front right panel, near bottom and very low water level can cause water to suck up into intake and cause rods to bend. They said only way to correct is a new engine. They put a used engine from salvaged wreck into the car. This is a 2011 car!

Now the dealer won't take it on trade because they say its not worth value anymore since this incident, only worth 1/2 value.

They want me to take the loss,

Why is the intake so low with a SUV/AWD
