1996 Alfa Romeo 146 L 1.4


Stylish resemblance of classic Alfas


Front left seat belt was getting stuck from the beginning (replaced under warranty).

Occasional problems with acceleration (the car tends to "suffocate"), which was not repaired until the end.

General Comments:

Very nice, stylish car. It's easy to ride, excellent steering, fabulous road holding.

I only don't understand why they put that outdated boxer engine in a new model (they should have waited for new 16 valve engines to come out). However the boxer is in a way fun, as long as you have patience with its roughness.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
