General Comments:

I have had the car now for 4.5 years. It has been very reliable all the time from 95,000km to the current 211,000km. This engine is naturally too small for the chassis, but with twin carburettors the sound is nice! It also uses a lot of fuel (10l/100km) and has a constant motor oil consumption (1l/1500km). Altogether I am still very happy with the car. After this Alfa it is very difficult to find a new car that I would like to buy.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
