with oil,brakes,front seat is squeaking as if it had driving history of 3 years.

He sorted that,but again electronic plays games, when he is trying to prove that in service,nothing!
Alfas can occasionally be struck down with chronic electrical problems- we call them the 'bad apples' even companes like Nissan and Honda occasionally do them- the brakes are reasonably bomb-proof- but have been known to squeak and groan- the front seats squeaking is a leather trim issue (The leather rubs up against the armrest) and the oil issues of tbe 156 sHOULD have been sorted with the introduction of the direct fuel injection engines- which were redesigned around the engine oil issue

Thumbs up

The Lybra is very nice to me I'm changing my mind, I though it was too classical but this car is very class, elegant. Inside, the materials used are very nice : coulors, quality, etc ! (leather, alcantara, wood, laque, etc. )
About the reliability of the 156, mine makes a little noise from the front when I'm braking or turning hardly and the car is not warm... is it normal ?

This is the latest from Geneva...at last new wheels!

However, engine too old to cope, new one is on its way too slow to show.
Ecology = 0

Brakes? Well , one would have to take many things in consideration
to provide you with proper solution.

I'm not sure that the brakes are concerned, and concerning it, they are good (my car was revised one month ago). My car has almost 70 000 km and I don't drive slow but I manage enough my car.

Re: Lancia Lybra

My father has a Lybra 1.9 JTD 116cv Station Wagon, 50000 km in less than 2 years, no problems till now, good performances, 15-16 km/litre, also 18 in highway.
Excellent comfort.
In Italy there are many Lybra.

It will be replaced by a crossover, similar to the Opel Signum, in 2006.

I have yet to comprehend Lancia's foolish decision to abandon Lybra from present product program? Instead of using the latest engines from Phaedra, they decided to stop production of Lybra for good. Very sad indeed. Considering this is one of the most decent and elegant cars out there, very sad indeed. Again, thank you Fiat very much

@khaaki2005,

No,

This is too old engine, even Lybra Benz engines can barely fit into Euro III, stay away from it. Euro IV is here stay.

Re: Lancia Lybra

Hello!!!
my name is Bogdan and i'm from Ukraine....heared anything about this country?so, I'm one of those who drives Lancia Lybra 2001 SW 1,9JTD....
Very nice car...I bought it couple weeks ago, so I have nothing to say about it. But I really like it..I had Opel Vectra (England version), nice car too, but not for our roads. Would you be so kind to let me know where I can get "manual book" for this car?
Thanks....

Re: Lancia Lybra

Bogdan,

Finding those from Italian club sites shouldn't be any problem on web or P2P (Emule). But finding one in your language is probably a bit harder to locate on P2P or some site.

You could contact some local Lancia service or dealer. Is there any chance that some local community or club of Italian cars exists in Ukraine? Prehaps you should look there. Or simply find some owner and make a copy. Sorry that I can't offer you some great links. Haven't really followed any forums recently. But good bet is also to find some large Lancia Internet club or community and they might offer better findings.

I'm sure Stefanel would be kind to copy his manual. But it is in French
