So once Ibiza with her tins decaying, prop assembly and is unreliable league outfits with a new suit of Giorgetto Giugiaro, chassis and the Volkswagen mechanics and finish for any of the Iberian Peninsula, only heard.

Well, from 1993 to 1995 have had to learn from the ground principles in order to save their gnash their teeth, which are carried from the plant in Wolfsburg because of problems with the new generation Ibiza. Even against these childhood diseases, however, it was clear that the model yet brilliant career.

Nine years after its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show ispanche is little more accessible than ever before. The prices of used cars are likely to become more attractive after the presentation of the new Ibiza this spring. While a 2/3 VW Polo and enjoy the deserved high reputation of the donor, however, the compact seat is far from immune to technical deficiencies.

Many of them were cured during the first two years of production, when the company throws a big effort to improve Ibiza. Others simply have the mark of southern European fit with them future owner would still have to adapt.

It is quite clear that the comparison between the qualities of the body of the first and second generation Ibiza and the word is out. With the exception of the last two or three years of his life to the conveyor older generation find it difficult competition slight corrosion protection and poor fit. However, in the beginning the new Ibiza also surprised with some defects in the car.

Typical examples are some red and black specimens from 1993-94, which lacquer is insufficient sustainable and sensitive to small stones. Because of this problem in early 1995 and the plant began to cause additional layer of paint.

Hard Teutonic hand is evident from the quality of workmanship of the salon. Comments can still be heard and at the gym. By the standards of the class, he has a lot to offer in terms of payload and functionality.

Spacious is happy with nice layout, but visibility to the rear is very limited. With the exception of sports format versions of seats is quite appropriate and tired during long journey. In November 1995 seat take action against #8220;crazy#8221; decorative caps on the screws in the interior and vibration at the top of the dashboard.

Back to the earlier cars with three doors often plastic sheathing beneath the rear glass to deform after three years of operation. Like the older generation Ibiza, the sleigh under the front seats backlash occurs and the mechanism for moving the seat back fails. Pedal cars for 1993-94 does often annoying squeak.

As might be expected, the entire engine range, which is assembled Ibiza, is taken for granted by Volkswagen. The motors are usually cited as almost the only positive feature of the old generation.

Developed by Porsche units actually had a decent, but hindsight allows to recognize that in terms of quality and reliability, the new engine is undoubtedly superior to its predecessors. Buyers can choose from an impressive variety of its #8220;menu#8221;.

Motors with a volume of 1.05 to 2.0 liters and an output of 45 to vtreshtyavashtite trolley with similar dimensions 150 hp In VW apparently thought to turn seat in sports face his stamp collection in the early 90#8242;s.

Most common market are 1.4-liter versions with 60 hp Followed by the 1600-cc engines with 75 horses.

Both show a similar engine appetite, but bigger is definitely preferable because of its dynamic characteristics. Willing to risk a more unusual choice can stop the smallest engine with a modest 55 #8220;ponies#8221; or very rare 1300 cc engine with the old versions of the Polo and Golf.

Inflated 1.8-and 2.0-liter Furies should be purchased with caution because the normal depreciation of such vehicles. VW#8217;s diesels have traditionally interested deserve whatever modification.

In April 1994 the plant take action and improve the quality of the weld the guard node. The remainder of defects under the hood are rare and primarily affect cooling.

Most often damaged water pump and thermostat, though chronic diseases can hardly speak. The temperature sensor of the radiator fin is even detail which tests generally should be monitored.

Gearbox and clutch in Ibiza often show defects when they are cosmetic. The course of clutch at the old cars sometimes increases due to wear of the mechanism to automatically adjust the clearance. Difficult gear engagement occurs in cars manufactured up to June 1995, as well as the vibration of the clutch and shifter diesels.

Strange as it may sound, electrical equipment shows quite defects. Naturally, almost all of them affect the cars from the beginning of production and soon afterwards removed.
