My check engine light came on some time in May 2017. Once checked at shop it was told that the 8th cylinder was misfiring. It was supposed to be fixed. On my way home the engine light came back on.

Took it back to the shop that week and they said it was the 02 censor. Later that weekend the engine light came back on.

Third time back at the shop for the same thing. This is getting outrageous. This time it's the 8th cylinder again. They replaced it and before I can get several miles for the shop. The light came back on again along with the coolant light.

Fourth times a charm I thought. This time they said the same thing the 8th cylinder is misfiring. The final conclusion is that they would replace my engine. Hmmm after all this shouldn't they have came up with that in the beginning.

That's what technology is for to tell you what's wrong and fix it properly. I really think that they are stalling to have my factory warranty run out.

I was sent home in my same defected vehicle to wait to get an approval for the engine replacement. Really guys. Why not give me a loaner until everything has finally been repaired properly?

This is not good business and I have been more than patient with them. I haven't even had the car 2 years yet.
