Hi there. This complaint is one of the most common problems for the engine on this vehicle. Most other owners have had multiple problems revolving around this vehicle. I will list them in order from most common to least common: spark plugs, plug wires, ignition coil, fuel pump and filter, intake manifold leak, fuel injectors to name just a few. My recommendation is to have a thorough inspection by a certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, to check over the engine for any of the issues listed.
