Disadvantages of the JTMA/JTMB engine
- In 2013 and 2017, engines of this series fell into recall campaigns due to fires;
- The sophisticated cooling system with an electromagnetic clutch was to blame for everything;
- The whole aluminum motor is afraid of overheating: it breaks the gasket or leads the cylinder head;
- Due to bad fuel, components of the direct injection system fail here;
- Knocks under the hood hint you need to adjust the valve clearances.
