Disadvantages of the S5-DPTS engine

  • There was a recall campaign in connection with the ingress of oil into the intake at high speeds;
  • Most of the problems described on the specialized forums are associated with the vagaries of the particulate filter;
  • During the burning of the particulate filter, the oil level in this engine may rise sharply;
  • If you burn too often, the oil will thin out, which is dangerous for the engine;
  • Owners also complain about periodically highly variable fuel consumption.
