Disadvantages of the VW AZM engine
- The motor is considered very reliable and worries its owners only over trifles.
- Most of the problems with this engine are somehow related to the ignition system.
- Also, electrical failures often occur, more often than others the crankshaft position sensor, coolant temperature sensor, idle speed controller are buggy.
- Another weak point of the power unit is the crankcase ventilation system.
