Initial symptom was a shaking during stop light idle, took it the dealer and they replace all the spark plugs and found 1 (cylinder 1) with the white ceramic portion broken.
The issue returned a few months later and they found a different cylinder (cylinder 4) spark plug with broken seal, got replaced.
2 months later it started again, and found 2 broken (cylinders 1 and 6). I got all spark plugs replaced but the shaking came the next day!!!
