Disadvantages of the VW BKG engine
- The main problems are delivered by a complex intake system with many sensors.
- This system not only often fails, but also leads to difficult starting in cold weather.
- In second place is the unreliable timing chain, sometimes it stretches to 100,000 km.
- Carry spare ignition coils with you, here they constantly fail.
- More disadvantages: increased carbon formation and oil consumption at high mileage.
