    So when will they schedule a recall to fix this recall? I’ll set that aside to ask this question:
    How does that 3 cylinder engine run in terms of smoothness?

      Overall, not too bad! Has a little more vibration than a 4-cylinder, but certainly has good pickup.

    I’m told I have a bad fuel injector. How does this tie in with the recall?
    This particular dealership says they don’t have to part to fix the recall, (drain tube) but they tell me I have a bad fuel injector because they can’t seem to find what is wrong with it??
