Disadvantages of the VW AXC engine
- Firstly, this is a rather weak unit, acceleration to hundreds takes almost 25 seconds;
- But in terms of reliability, it is not bad, breakdowns occur only at a significant mileage;
- Due to the fastening of the unit injectors with one bolt, they can become loose and leak;
- Poor quality oil contributes to the rapid wear of the camshaft and hydraulic lifters;
- The weak points of this engine also include a turbine, as well as a tandem pump.
