Misfire returned. They cleaned the mass air sensor, but it did not fix it (it came back within a week). They told me they were going to charge me $150, but have not done it yet (and I suspect will not). I may try a different dealer this time.

Airbag sensor on passenger seat needed calibration. Warning light was on when my wife (100lbs) sat in it but not when I sat in it (150lbs). For safety, airbag will NOT deploy if light is on for small children and is supposed to be calibrated at 60lbs.
