Disadvantages of the Hyundai G8AB engine
- This is a completely reliable and resource unit, but its fuel consumption is too big;
- Catalysts do not tolerate bad gasoline and can fall apart as early as 100,000 km;
- Monitor the condition of the timing belt, as its breakage is usually fatal for the motor;
- But the main problem of the engine is the almost complete lack of spare parts.
