- Compared to a 4.8-liter engine, this power unit is reliable and unpretentious;
- The weak point of this engine is the plastic parts of the cooling system;
- The thermostat housing and the tube to the pump often crack, which leads to loss of antifreeze;
- After 200,000 km, the timing chain replacement procedure with engine dismantling awaits you;
- Often worried about the intake flaps, ignition coils and the fuel pump in the tank.
