Disadvantages of the DV5RC engine
- While all such diesel engines are still under warranty, there are no failure statistics for them anywhere.
- The common rail system with piezo injectors is usually demanding on fuel quality.
- The presence of the BlueHDi nameplate implies a complex exhaust gas treatment system.
- Keep an eye on the condition of the timing belt, as its breakage leads to expensive repairs.
