Disadvantages of the EJH engine

  • This power unit has been produced not so long ago and breakdown statistics have not yet been collected;
  • This unit is installed only on the Jeep Renegade and its owners do not particularly complain;
  • The only negative can be considered mediocre power characteristics;
  • In principle, this is an engine for third world countries, where it has become widespread.
