1999 Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 from UK and Ireland
I talk to the dealer more than my wife
A beautiful car to drive and look at but the after service from the dealership is appalling. They really have no interest in fixing my problems. I have a dash rattle, dodgy climate control and the locks play up.
None of the problems are life threatening but very very irritating!!! Dealer seems to think just cause I paid nearly £20000 for this work of art, I shouldn't complain. If you want a straight answer then yes I recommend this car, but it's not perfect, it still has build quality problems, and you'd better wake up if you think the dealer cares once you've bought the car. By the way, I've moved on to my third dealership, it must be a conspiracy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

See my review 1999 "Look forward to...".
I've had my first scary experience with an Alfa dealer after only 8 weeks and am wary of what's to come!
Alfa Head Office do not seem that interested in the performance of their dealer network!
