Can someone chime in on the ongoing GDI engine reliability concerns. I hear possible issues arising from carbon build up and potential metal fragment accumulation from engine wear. Anyone????

With all the posts regarding ignition misfires, coil pack failures and plug problems it seems the oil companies are trying to help with a new reformulation and classification (SN plus or SN +).Our small displacement GTDI engines seem most susceptible. Haven't seen any of the 5W-40 weights reformulated yet but many already add the classification to the 5W-30 oils. I will be changing to it on my new '20 N-line @ 1000 miles.
