Hello

For an engine to seize then usually its a lack of oil or coolant

if there's oil in the sump and coolant in the tank then there's a very good chance that there's an internal fault possibly with an oil pump drive part and the warrenty should be honoured and a new engine fitted

if the oil or coolant level was allowed to get too low then they may not honour the warrenty
