The 1.2-liter 3-cylinder Volkswagen BMD 1.2 HTP engine was assembled from 2004 to 2009 and put on a number of popular compact models of the concern, such as the Fox, Polo, Ibiza and Fabia. This power unit is essentially an updated version of the more famous AWY motor.

Disadvantages of the VW BMD engine
- The most serious engine problems are associated with the timing chain and its hydraulic tensioner.
- The chain can stretch up to 50,000 km or jump after parking in gear.
- The reason for the unstable operation of the unit is usually contamination of the throttle or crankcase ventilation.
- Injectors are sensitive to fuel quality, and ignition coils do not last long.
- On runs over 100,000 km, these engines often suffer from valve burnout.
