Amazing car that seems to go on forever
New clutch and belt @ 200000.
Sunvisor fell off and slapped me in the head.
I've had this car 7 years now, and have racked up around 140000 miles.
It has been an excellent car, very comfortable with a very muscular 2.4 diesel engine, and in all this time I have spent 3000 pounds on repair bills, which I think is excellent for the mileage I do. Price of parts are not the cheapest, the wife had DMF and clutch replaced on a Mondeo last week for 650, so it's not really any different.
So it's now done 250 odd thousand miles and I just can't justify getting rid of it, my wife has had a plethora of other cars; Fords, Audis etc. and had a fair share of problems, but the Alfa keeps chugging along.
To sum up: Pros.
Smooth and powerful.
Good looking to me.
Fun to drive.
No cup holders.
Wing mirrors too small.
Not quite as sharp handling as BMW.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
