Summary:

Nice little sedan

Faults:

Nothing until today, the clutch just went out.

General Comments:

Very good car. It is geared low for driving through the mountains. Excellent car, I just don't like how it revs very high on the Autostrada and Autobahn. It's top speed is 210km/h at around 6200 RPM's in 5th gear. The car handles well and has very good acceleration.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Hi, I just purchased a 1997 Alfa Romeo 155 Twin Spark. I am looking for a web site on 155 engines. Do you know of any.

Regards.

Tony Fischetti.
