Disadvantages of the VW CMBA engine
- The first year of production, these power units suffered from oil consumption due to the marriage of the cylinder head;
- Also on specialized forums they complain about a very long warm-up and extraneous noise in operation;
- And there is also a high risk of damaging the ignition coils during the usual replacement of candles;
- The wastegate actuator rod is often wedged and a powerful electric motor breaks it off;
- Plastic pump with two thermostats often leaks and replacement is expensive.
