Disadvantages of the HRA2DDT engine

  • The motors of the first years often failed electrically and dealers reflashed the ECU more than once;
  • However, oil consumption is the most troublesome, and from the first kilometers;
  • The reason for the floating speed here is carbon deposits on the valves due to direct injection;
  • The timing chain does not have a high resource, sometimes it is changed up to 100,000 km;
  • The sealing ring of the crankcase ventilation pipe often bursts.
