Disadvantages of the VW AZD engine
- Also, idle speeds often float here, mainly due to dirt on the throttle.
- The cooling system is characterized by low reliability, both the pipes and the thermostat are leaking.
- Replacing the timing belt is relatively expensive, and when it breaks, it bends the intake valves.
- On a run of 200,000 km, oil consumption often appears, but usually it is small.
