Disadvantages of the Mercedes M200 engine

  • In the early years there were problems with floating speed, but the firmware fixed everything;
  • In second place are complaints about the oil burner, which disappears only after replacing the rings;
  • The timing chain also does not have a long service life and many people replace it at 100,000 km;
  • Like all direct injection units, this one suffers from carbon deposits on the intake valves;
  • This is also a rather rare turbo engine and finding a suitable donor is very difficult.
