Yes, it definitely is. Misfires are common problems with cars and misfires can be considered 'emissions' problems too... Like a bad EGR valve that will cause your engine to misfire and sometimes make it read codes for emissions. I would stick with the car if it were any repairs under a couple thousand dollars.... Its only a five year old car. Good luck!

I agree with dave. I had the same issue with my 04 R32. It was a coilpack that needed to be replaced... Good luck
