2002 Alfa Romeo 147 1.6TS Distinctive 1.6 from Belgium
Would rather not comment
After taking delivery of the car, I had to bring her back to the dealer after 2 weeks due to a very loud clanking noise coming from the back left. Mechanic's report stated fire extinguisher in the boot was probable cause and didn't even test drive the car. Noise continued and was eventually repaired when the car was 2 months old. Mechanic wouldn't tell me what was wrong.
I then had to get an electronic piece replaced in the on-board computer which took 2 months.
Now my car is 5 months old and the clutch and gearbox have to be replaced. Mechanic in dealership said 'it is a construction fault'.
Beautiful car to look at - very stylish, but I would also like reliability.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
