2001 Alfa Romeo 156 T Spark 1.8 from UK and Ireland
Great value for money and huge fun
ABS light and Engine Management light occasionally come on, but always reset on start-up.
I drive 60 miles a day on the motorway, and this car simply eats it up. For a 1.8 the performance is exceptional, and the handling is superb. I can return over 30mpg even at motorway speeds, the comfort and ride quality being great.
My last car was a BMW 325i, which was good, but this is so much more fun, with sleek looks and a quirky style.
So far it's been totally reliable; everything works fine, and a local garage has all the gear to service and maintain it for the same costs as any other car.
A comfortable family saloon that drives like a sports car, highly recommended.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
