Disadvantages of the CR14DE engine

  • In the first years of production, cases of hanging valves were periodically recorded;
  • The engine is picky about fuel quality and requires cleaning of the injectors every 60,000 km;
  • Already by 140-150 thousand kilometers, the timing chain is stretched and begins to rattle;
  • After 200 thousand kilometers, progressive oil consumption is already common.
