tries but does not want to completely start. i pop the hood and the reservoir is boiling i
wait for about 15 min for it to cool and i met the towtruck driver at my house a mile

in for a warranty claim but ive been hearing a lot of people motor blowing not sure what
to think...

Honestly, it doesn't matter. You're covered by new car warranty here. Make sure they give you a loaner car while yours is being fixed! Read up on your state's Lemon Law just in case you get it back messed up! HTH. -Jim
