Small problem with the gearbox during the third month of ownership. The problem was fixed immedeatly by reprogramming the gearbox computer.

No problems since.

General Comments:

The Alfa Romeo 156 Selespeed is a very enjoyable car to drive. It's very fast (especially on the motorway) and the engine makes a wonderful sound.

The City mode is a bit of a let down because it seriously slows down the car and the shifting of gears is jerky especially at low speeds.

The Interior is well made and very nice to be in. The Speed dials are wonderful.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
