Disadvantages of the XQDA engine

  • The direct fuel injection system here is very reliable and causes almost no problems;
  • After 100 – 150 thousand km, oil consumption usually appears due to the fault of the stuck rings;
  • Closer to 200,000 km, the timing chain is quite often pulled out here and requires replacement;
  • On long runs, the cylinder head often cracks and the oil begins to ooze into the antifreeze;
  • It is also worth noting the modest assortment and high prices for spare parts for this engine.
