Chain or Belt ?

Post by Duncan22 » Wed Aug 29, 2018 8:59 am

Seems the petrol engine 1.6 has a timing chain belt but the diesel engine in a juke has a belt ?
Is one more reliable than the other ? If so why not stick to the most reliable one ?
Out of interest where are the engines for the Juke made ?
I know the car body is made and assembled in sunderland.

The diesel engine is straight from renault, idenitical to what you'd find in any 1.5 diesel renault cars, I'm gussing it's built in france.
