The older red ones tend (and I emphasize "tend") to start to miss. You get a CEL misfire code. They get worse over a couple days - then it stops working. No guarantees, sometimes they just fail. My own started missing, I got to drive 10 miles home before it died. The black ones are known to go with less warning. Apparently they just die. The recall has to do with DI's that are dying at much lower mileages than normal. Since replacement is a 10 minute job, many folks like to carry a spare "just in case".
