Just shy of 25000 miles and rough starting and idle. Engine light on. Took to dealer and spark plug coil bad. Is this a common problem?

thanks. Just took it back for the third time in a week for the same problem. Dive it home from the dealer fine. remote start the next morning starts then shut off after just a minuet or two. Check engine light comes on and it runs rough.

Dealer first time in updated the computer. said there was a tech bulletin on it.
Second time: got a cylinder 8 miss fire. Replaced spark plugs and coil.
This morning turn on and engine light on again? Starting to get Pissed. The invoice said they switch the coil with another and the code followed it.

This is starting to suck

Not common at all.
You probably have a different issue and they didn't realize what it is just yet...
I'd say it's more of a control module issue than a mechanical issue.

Hope you have better luck getting it resolved that I have. My 2019 has had misfire issues on and off since about 10k. Currently its back in the shop for cylinder 3 misfire. This issue they have been working on for over a month. They gave it back to me after swapping a head to "fix" the issue and now it misfires on Cylinder 3 anytime there is moisture in the air....rain, snow, washing the truck. And of course each time you take it back they tell you....well you don't have an appointment so it will be at least a week before I can get you in and we currently don't have any loaner vehicles for you. The last time they were waiting on parts for over 2 weeks. So frustrating considering the money you spend on a vehicle that it can't even get to 36k without having major issues. I have extended the warranty out to 100k due to these issues so that I know it will never be my problem to pay for.
