No.The drive I had was at least 250 miles just after I bought it,We spoke to the previous owner who was very helpful.she said she had no problems but did drive the vehicle very easy.I have every reason to believe that ,She had it from new and on the face of it and going by the invoices looked after it.

From what you are describing the issue is one of the fuel injectors have failed and is dumping fuel in to the cylinder, what I would suggest as a first step is to have the fuel injectors balance tested.
