Summary:

Good handling for low price

Faults:

Electric parts have several contact problems.

Lot of tweaks and squeks on dashboard.

General Comments:

Driver seat and driving position are horrible - uncomfortable and a real ergonomic disaster. All other cars I have driven (quite a few of them) have better driving position.

Very fast around corners.

Very nice motor. There is a lot of power to be used when revs are high. Sounds great! Max torque is at 5000rpm so revving is needed.

Very good looking - it does not get lost in masses.

Hallo Steven: I have an offer to buy the same car you have: The car is from 96, and has 199600 km. It looks good. I want to know if the car engine has good durability an if it gives you problems of constant maintenance, because in Spain, Alfa Romeo it means problems. the price they want is 900

Summary:

Best value for money

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Someone in these reviews said that Opel/Vauxhall GSI is build better quality than Alfa... well that's total rubbish. Alfa is far more better than Opel/Vauxhall. What is Opel compared to Alfa? I must say, that Opel is just another standard car... nothing to offer. But Alfa, what else you can say about the car, but Cuore sportivo.
