- Around this run, the injection pump belt often bursts, but usually without consequences;
- In the first years of production, there was a burnout of the pistons due to a defect in the piezo injectors;
- The timing chain lasts a long time, up to 300 – 350 thousand km, but its replacement is very expensive;
- At high mileage, the particulate filter or EGR valve may become completely clogged.
