Disadvantages of the VW BSX engine

  • The engines of the first years came under a revocable campaign to replace the gas reducer.
  • Just a year later, a new campaign to replace defective cylinders followed.
  • In addition to problems with gas equipment, the engine is famous for its high oil consumption.
  • It is worth noting the problems with the ignition system, they often change coils and wiring.

1 thought on “Engine Volkswagen BSX”

  1. My car’s engine was very tight and took @ 80.000 km to rev freely to the red line. Oil consumption presently under 1/4 litre per 1000 km (at 128.000km). When is timing belt replacement due?
