  • Also here quite often there are failures in traction due to the wedge geometry of the turbine;
  • The timing belt is designed for 120 thousand km, and its breakage is usually fatal for the engine;
  • Many owners have experienced oil consumption up to 1 liter per thousand km;
  • This version of the diesel does not have a particulate filter, but there is an EGR valve and it often wedges.
