Car ran fine, then started acting rough running at a stop light, wouldn't hardly go, I thought it was going to die on idle. Check engine light came on. Dealer said I needed to replace the plugs and wires, which were not covered by warranty. I was given a loaner for 3 days. The labor was $45.00 and the diagnosis cost $90.00 at the dealer. Total came to $256.00. I know I could have done the work cheaper on my own, but I was hoping the "problem" would be covered on my warranty. It didn't act like a plug or wire, it acted like something major, as it came on so suddenly.
