Disadvantages of the Z10XE engine

- Electrical failures are usually associated with weak wiring, as well as glitches in the ECU;
- The timing chain has a small resource, it can stretch even for 100,000 km;
- Owners regularly contact the service station to replace the oil pump or thermostat;
- If you abuse low-quality oils, hydraulic lifters will not last long here.
