Disadvantages of the VW CASA engine
- In this diesel engine, there was a marriage of high-pressure fuel pump and a campaign was carried out for a free replacement;
- Intake manifold swirl flaps can jam up to 100,000 km;
- Timing chains run for a long time, about 300,000 km, but replacement is expensive;
- At about the same mileage, piezo injectors or a turbine may already fail;
- A lot of costly problems for the owner are delivered by the particulate filter and the EGR valve.
