1995 Alfa Romeo 145 e.i. 1.6 Boxer from UK and Ireland
Fast and fun
I had the car three days and the differential in the gear box exploded, shearing the drive shaft and knackering the clutch. When I took it to my local dealer I was only to find out that this would cost me £1700 because I also needed a new radiator. GUTTED!!!
Once I finally got my car back, it has been such a nice easy drive and I love it. The driving position is very comfortable and I even like the interior.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I loved the look of this car when I bought it, but that's all I got to do, look at it. Nightmare. As soon as I drove it off the forecourt the dash lit up with every kind of error light. 4 months at the Alfa dealer did not sort this out, they even flew 2 blokes in from Milan to take a look! Apparantley it has flawed 'throttle pots'??? 4k later I decided to reject the car, Alfa were great, although I did end up driving away in a Vectra. Not as headturning, but it goes.
