Mine for example is not wearing the latest version but still no recall from the factory for it.
My concern is that why did they change the coilpack if no problems then? Maybe not enough customers comlained yet to recall.
Anyways, service guy took the car for a test drive and told me that car is running perfect. To prove me that my car had no missfire issues he let me sit in a car that was running on 3 cylinders (was in for coil change suprise) .
In my opinion was way too "shaky" to be the same symptom as missfire.
I booked a diagnostic test next week.
Still the car does not seem to beahave correctly, or at least evenly, some times is running extremely smoothly and seems powerfull and urgent to move ahead, and sometimes like hesistating or engine is about to die on braking.
Does anyone know whether the hesistation in 1500rpm-2000rpm is been affected by any external factors?
mine is doing the same thing at low rpm, first started in the summer but now appeared also the engine check sign time to time on the dashboard and at some traffic lights when i was braking slowly after i released the brake the car was almost to die,but what i can't understand is why it has moments when pulls normally?
if something is wrong has to be always the same, also if i turn right the starring wheel makes noise
