Default Fuel injector issues

I have a 2009 outlook. I have had a couple of issues with fuel injectors. the first time I was having intermittent misfires. The second happened recently. A couple of injectors were stuck open.
Cylinder #5 had problems both times.
Is anyone else having issues like this?
Is there a way to prevent these kind of issues?

keep in mind that if you are still in 5/100k the 2007 thru 2009 powertrain warranty does cover fuel injectors.

Thanks
Yes both were covered under the power train warranty. I am getting close to that ending, so I would like to prevent further issues. Someone suggested using LM2007 Jectron fuel injector cleaner on a regular basis. they have a couple of cars that they use ti on.

i would make sure to use top tier fuels. look it up if not sure what that is. i only recently caught on to that. required in direct injection cars which you have. keeps things much cleaner than standard fuels. same price. if you dont use top tier you will have problems with gum up.

Thanks.
I will look into it.
I have been buying my gas at the same place for years and have used it on several vehicles. the Outlook is the only one with injector issues.

That I don't know.
This is the first that I had heard about different types of fuel injections.
So the little bit of research that I did showed indirect and direct injection. I don't know what the other cars have.
I will try your suggestion about the Top Tier Gas.
