2004 Alfa Romeo 147 JTD 1.9 turbo diesel


Good looks, comfortable, quick for a diesel


The serpentine belt of the alternator tore. Turned out that I forgot to change it last time I changed the belts. My fault.

Nothing else.

General Comments:

Good performance, feels like a petrol car. Quick responses and good handling. I have not gone over 160 km/h, as I do believe in common sense.

During winter conditions and heavy rain it has worked flawlessly, and never left me on the side of the road.

No marks for the dealer, as I have not used an official dealer - too costly, and we have only one.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
