According to some consumer reports, ZD30 engines (particularly newer ones) receive a bad reputation on reliability. The problems that have been experienced are cracks on the cylinder block as thin as a strand of hair and on a piston requiring a rebuild. The other problem is the ECU that doesn't give the engine its maximum performance. The effect for the engine would not perform at its peak. The problems could occur when a car such as a Nissan Patrol is under new-car warranty or even, when a car is out of warranty.
