I had a "multiple engine misfire" DTC that frequently came up. The idle was
also rough. I took it to the dealer and they did a bunch of stuff...one of the
things was to replace the coil packs. So, I'm  not sure if the replacement was
due to incident mentioned in Consumer Reports or to just my individual

FWIW, the rough idle and misfire problem still exists. I just live with it.
