Disadvantages of the Audi DCPC engine

  • On specialized forums, only rave reviews about their power-efficiency;
  • It can be assumed that the CR Bosch fuel system will cause the most trouble;
  • As always, many problems will be associated with the particulate filter, as well as the EGR valve;
  • The timing has become more compact, so the chain resource here is unlikely to exceed 200 – 300 thousand km.
