1991 Alfa Romeo 75 2.0 twin spark


Replaced one camshaft at 70000km.

Replaced front and rear brake pads.

Drivers seat foam decomposed!

Electrically operated side mirror (R) failed.

Replaced front and rear shocks.

Replaced flex-joints in the prop shaft at 155000km. The prop shaft couldn't be disassembled so it had to be broken, and was replaced by a used part. (EURO 50!!!)

Oil change every 5000km.

Cloth attached to the sun roof has loosened.

General Comments:

After 10 years, I still enjoy driving this car every day.

Two years ago I became aware of "engine" vibrations and thought that the end was near. I thought I could just drive carefully so as to preserve the engine. When I changed garage the mechanic discovered that the flex-joints in the prop shaft needed replacing. Now it feels like the car is brand new again.

I want to get a 156 but am afraid I won't like the front wheel drive. Then again, I enjoy this car (75) so much I don't want to ditch it!

The car sounds great too. Not like Japanese cars.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
