2nd trip into dealer for stalling. Performed ECM update. After update car continued to stall after first start of the day but not as often. Another thing I noticed was my fuel range on a full tank of gas went from 665 km to 615 km. This brought to the attention of service mgr who never responded to calls or emails. Brought car back in shortly after and no issues found on their end. Car still has less range on full tank of gas!

Engine began lurching at low RPM, usually in higher gear, about three months ago. Rough idle appeared with regularity a few weeks later. Used 3-4 rounds of fuel additives and replaced air filter and spark plugs myself; no improvement. Dealer diagnosed misfire on one piston. Ignition coil was identified as the cause by moving the coil to another spark plug; misfire was then detected on that piston. Replaced faulty ignition coil, both issues appear to be resolved.
