2002 Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 JTS S.W. 2.0 from Poland
Pleasure on long rides
Dealer installed alarm did not control the windows properly.
Electric window motor died.
Plastic covers inside the trunk keep falling off.
This car delivers very comfortable ride - quite silent with suspension well mathing Polish bumpy roads. Bumps on a corner does not influence handling. I do not use low profile tires.
It is much softer than my previous Alfa, yet it handles very well.
Engine delivers plenty of torque in a very wide range of revs, so the car does not feel very sporty - engine works effortlessly. But surprisingly other cars are left far begind.
Overtaking lorries on single lane roads is a pleasure - quick acceleration and precise steering.
The only problem is fuel consumption - over 10l/100km on the road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
