The Volkswagen AWC 1.8-liter turbo engine was produced by the concern from 2000 to 2010 and was installed on the restyled version of the first generation Sharan and the similar Alhambra. This motor is distinguished by the presence of a proprietary controlled hydraulic tensioner-phase regulator.

Disadvantages of the VW AWC engine
- This is a strong and very resourceful engine, but it often suffers from air leaks.
- Its intake system consists of many nozzles and the cause can be searched for a long time.
- And here is a complex and not very reliable dual-circuit crankcase ventilation system.
- The turbine runs for a long time and does not cause problems, but only with a working crankcase ventilation system.
- Often there are antifreeze leaks through the plastic tee of the cooling system.
- The branded hydraulic tensioner does not differ in a special resource, it is also a phase regulator.
- Weak points include ignition coils, fuel pump and coolant temperature sensor.
