The 2.0-liter turbocharged Volkswagen AXX 2.0 TFSI engine was assembled from 2004 to 2006 and installed on the sixth generation of the Passat model, the fifth Golf, and also the Audi A3 in the 8P body. This power unit relatively quickly gave way to updated versions of the motor.

Disadvantages of the VW AXX engine

  • This motor is famous for its high oil consumption and increased carbon formation.
  • Intake valves and variable geometry dampers in the intake suffer from soot.
  • Here you can get rid of the oil burner by replacing the original pistons with forged ones.
  • The timing belt here serves about 90,000 km, about the same as the inter-shaft chain.
  • Up to 100 thousand km, the phase regulator or the pusher of the high-pressure fuel pump drive may fail.
  • Ignition coils and bypass valve N249 also have a modest resource.
