Summary:

As they say 'Once you have owned an Alfa you'll never have another car!'

Faults:

Nothing at all! Surprisingly everything is OK and only the usual running costs occured. Even the speedometer is working properly (this was a nightmare on my previous 33 1.5Ti)!

General Comments:

I have owned Alfa Romeos for the last 20 years (and a Honda Civic 1985 model) and I would never change them for another make of cars of the same or a bit higher class! They are fast, reliable, and safe.

In Cyprus they are cheap when bought second hand but very difficult to sell (except to Alfa Romeo lovers like me!).

No rust problems until now, no serious damage to the engine or body, upholstery should be much improved and some extra luxury added to their inside.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
