Without knowing where the noise, miles on the car or a maintenance history it's pretty hard to say.
Seems to me a compression check or a small camera inside a spark plug hole would be a cheaper first step than a tear down.

It's still an uncommon failure given how many of these engines are out there. I know that does not make you feel any better. Who actually is behind the warranty? Is it AutoNation or a 3rd party? I've bought new cars and the dealer tried to sell me a 3rd party extended warranty (rather than the manufacturer's) because that's the one the made the most money selling. Sometimes it takes a bit more effort to collect on some of the 3rd party warranties.
