    Took it to the dealer since I was still under the 5yr/100k mile powertain warranty. Dealer said there's a memo out that this code with these symptoms on 2012 Volts means the cylinder head needs replaced, so they're doing so. Part should be in tomorrow. I wonder if they fixed whatever caused this to happen in the first place. If not, might be selling this. No way I want to have to pay for this again out of pocket! Probably not a cheap or easy fix.

    Ask for the service bulletin number. Head replacement is very extreme for a cylinder misfire.

    The service bulletin is PIP5201A. Got it back. $2,300 repair - done just under warranty! Dodged that bullet!!!

    I'd like to know what makes this a 2012 Volt specific issue? Did the they change the head design for 2013 model years. I found the service letter but could not access the full document without paying a $5 one time fee for that info. The title was " Cold start misfires MIL P0300". (Jan-25-2017)
