Disadvantages of the JQMA engine
- Several recall campaigns were carried out in connection with the ignition of power units;
- The main reason was a malfunction of the electromagnetic clutch of the cooling system;

- Direct injection nozzles clog quickly and intake valves coke;
- Since there are no hydraulic lifters, the valve clearance must be periodically adjusted.
