Disadvantages of the Hyundai G4GF engine
- The engines of the first years suffered from low build quality and some of their components;
- Due to poor-quality lubrication, hydraulic lifters can knock already by 100,000 km;
- The timing belt does not always run the scheduled 60,000 km, and when it breaks, the valves bend;
- On runs over 200,000 km, wear of rings, caps and oil consumption are common;
- Also, the exhaust manifold often bursts, even a recall campaign was carried out.
