Disadvantages of the Audi CVMD engine
- On the units of the first years, due to noise under the hood, the camshafts were replaced under warranty;
- There were also a number of cases of failure of the oil pump on runs up to 50,000 km;
- All modern Common Rail systems with piezo injectors are afraid of bad fuel;
- After 100 – 120 thousand km, a sophisticated EGR system can throw problems here;
- Closer to 250,000 km, there is a high risk of stretching the timing chains.
