But it sounds like a concrete mixer...
As long as refinement isn't essential the 1.6 TDi is a sound car, but the 1.4 16V is quiet and handles better too with a 100 kg less weight on the front.
Our 1.4 averaged 45 mpg on a thirstier daily profile than yours.
Its a quite common occurrence as far as I know.
My 1.0TSI did this at 15000 miles when I parked it for 2 months. So did my 1.2 TSI at 26000 miles when I parked it for 4 months. Both times inside guarantee.
I don't think the missus needs a map and sport suspension for trips to the supermarkets.
I should have kept the older Ibiza, but her ladyship (responsible for me buying the 1.0 Toledo in the first place) wouldn't let me sell this one and keep the older car (that we both preferred driving as it...
It was fixed quickly enough but lockdown meant I didn't drive it for over 2 weeks.
It runs ok now, just like before, (so still with the asthmatic power delivery and crappy handling),
but at least her indoors can get to the supermarket now (and she doesn't care how it drives)
It's not the 1.4 twincharger ( which deserves a book by itself apparently ) but the chain 1.2 had a bad rep pre 2012 for chain issues and turbo and actuator issues. The last recall was 2012 and cars built since are supposed to be OK. But, my 2014 had the turbo replaced at only 26k
Re the 1.4...
There are multiple engines labelled 1.2TSI and indeed for some VAG vehicles 2015 marks the transition between the 8V chain cam one and the 16V belt cam one. The turbo location is different on the two. I suspect this is why you have 2 options for the actuator.
I' ve had this on a 1.2 and 1.0. both under guarantee. Neither was fixed by the actuator change (£483.40 on the 1.0 by the way) so both had new turbos
HOWEVER. On a variety of of VAG forums, people note that a poor battery can give rise to these symptoms, and a fully charged or new battery is...
The Bluetooth on our pre-facelift '15 Ibiza's Garmin was fine for phone use ( 2 phones can be paired to it I think), but if bluetooth music isn't satisfactory, it also has a MIcroSD slot which is what we used with 32 or 64GB cards.
Turbo actuator change under guarantee (phew! £483)
Didn't fix it :(
Turbo change under guarantee. (£££)
Car runs, no warning lights. Hooray. Although it may have a new oil leak?
Many VAG forums think a duff battery is the root cause of this EPC etc fault.
In which case why don't the...
Just like the 1.2, the activator change has not cured it. New turbo going in this afternoon.
On other VAG fan sites, many believe a flattish or old battery can cause these symptoms, and a new battery fixes it for about £140.
I dread to imagine the total bill doing it the dealer way if it...
I've not heard of many 1.0 doing this but the chain drive 1.2 was fairly notorious for turbo trouble as well as the widespread chain issues.
The 1.0 symptoms are EPC and engine management lights,with lack of power and a P003A code.
The 1.2 limp mode was with a P334B code.
