Not nice, petrol engines as well, they would have been better off with resonance intakes than swirl flaps.

All the issues modern engines are getting is scary.

Then add in dual mass flywheels, the rush to fewer cylinders will also increase drive train shocks.Then the extended service intervals (this killed quite a few GM V6s).

Beancounters are also a serious threat with their penny pinching costing future owners hundreds of pounds. (GM valve seals, save pence, need replacing), my pet hate is plastic head dowels.

I also reckon dual clutch gearboxes will be a time bomb in a few years.
