Disadvantages of the PR25DD engine

  • This power unit has been produced for only a few years and there are no statistics of its breakdowns yet;
  • On the forums, the owners complain only about the regular glitches of the Start-Stop system;
  • Due to the presence of direct injection, intake valves are quickly overgrown with soot;
  • The main cause of unstable engine operation is the contamination of the EGR valve;
  • Since there are no hydraulic lifters, the valves must be adjusted every 100,000 km.
