2002 Alfa Romeo 147 2.0 Selespeed 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Legendary Alfa unreliability still exists, despite claims that Alfa has stopped the rot
Hatchback door catch alarm sensor faulty.
Rear windscreen washer faulty.
VDC / ABS Warning light due to faulty foot brake sensor switch.
Broken rear door footplate.
Selespeed failure, which left me broken down and in the cold for 4 hours waiting for a tow-truck.
Wonderful design - inside and out.
Has all the toys (too many in fact)
Elegant and sporty.
Engine beautiful and makes the most satisfying noise.
Bose radio, sounds great at high volumes, average at low volumes.
Selespeed takes some getting used to, but great when it works!
3 months old and 3 times in the repair shop.
Very low on storage space. With a cd changer and the Bose stereo, the rear storage space is too small for golf clubs and definatly too small for a child's pushchair.
I am starting not to trust the car. My wife is worried about taking it on a long journey.
Legendary Alfa unreliability exists, despite media claims that Alfa has stopped the rot.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
Review Date: 16th December, 2002
I had one years back, it got:
VDC / ABS warning light due to faulty foot brake sensor switch, constantly after repair.
Selespeed failure, which got me stuck twice on the road.
The paddle transmission lagged big time.
CD loader lack shock observance ability.
Best part is when I take it to dealer for a trade in, they tell me straight that this model has too many problems and they don't want it!
I had to auction it at the end...
