    I’m looking at buying a 2012-15 Ibiza 1.2 TSI and I’m wondering if there’s any Major problems (mechanical or electrical) with these cars?

    2012 was the last year there was a camchain recall on the engine. Newer engines 2013 on should not have any camchain issues. I ran a 2014 for 3.5 years and had a turbo actuator failure at 26000 ( fixed under guarantee ). Traded it in at 35000, no other problems.

    If you post these 1.4 and 1.2 threads in Ibiza Mk5 I think you'll get more response.

    I didn't even know this Ibiza General section was here until your post caught my eye, but the Mk5 forum will guarantee it more visibility..
