I had planned on keeping this car as it's my favorite of all time but all the issues posted here i.e. coils, plugs, injectors, carbon build-up, etc. have me second guessing that decision. It almost seems as if it's a matter of when not if something will fail prematurely.
Plugs and coils eventually fail on any car.

Carbon build up is inevitable on DI motors with any car.

Injectors are also common failure on DI motors.

All of this just comes with the territory. I always tell people to stay in warranty. I know I'm out of this car as soon as its done.

Car is great but too many quirks.

If you view any car forum all you see is the "Bad news". Since the information is here its not really a big deal. A few dollars here and there to make great power for a little money isnt a bad deal.
