1991 Seat Ibiza GLX System Porsche 1.2 petrol
Nothing can keep it from running!
Only once I did have to change the clutch cable, at around 150000 km.
At 177000 it still runs with the factory clutch!
Last month I changed the radiator. I was driving with the radiator leaking for a whole year; kept putting water in every 3 days.
Changed the engine's gasket, because drops of water from the radiator were leaking into the burning chambers of one cylinder. It was driven like this for 2 years (!!!) before fixing it.
I had to change the alternator's regulator once at around 140000... it fried my battery.
The only 2 things that are making me crazy are the door handles that broke twice at the driver's door. They are not easy to find and replace, and secondly the top of the car that keeps falling.
NOTHING! Nothing can keep this car from driving... even with the clutch cable broken, I managed to drive to the garage. It took some time though with first gear only.
I love this car. It was my first, and all these years, it's never let me down, although I keep letting it down.
My second car, an Opel Corsa C 1.4 let me down 4 times. I had to pay a lot to get it on the road again.
My Ibiza that I drive at work every day keeps running with minor faults that are cheap to repair...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
