So it was in the shop for two days. It was indicated that no error messages showed in the logs. so they did some testing and found that they should change a plug and a coil. Which, as they noted was surprising for a car with less than 10,000 miles.

Kind of made me feel like I was making up the whole incident, just so I could leave the car at their garage and drive a crappy loaner for two days.

Upon picking it up, as I accelerated to leave the parking lot, "engine malfunction, enginge at reduced power" message, sputtering enging, can only drive 20 miles per hour. So I turn around and drive back into the garage, everyone is so surprised that it happened.

Third time in the garage for this issue.
