Bought top tier gas, put injector cleaner in the tank, and still did not trust the car beyond a 30 min drive from home.

I traded it last month just because she had a pimple on her nose I guess. Hated doing that, loved the car, the looks, the HP, but in the end just didn't trust it and the warranty was up in a month anyway.
One bad injector does not mean the entire car is crap. I have had to replace injectors on many cars, and I still drove them like I stole them afterwards. You would have just as much chance of an injector going bad on a car that had never had a problem and one that had 3-4 injectors replaced if they were the same mileage and service history.

Now if I was having valve or cylinder related issues......
