2006 Alfa Romeo 156 JTDM 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Truly a driver's car with excellent handling
EGR valve needed cleaning and that's about it.
Sticks to the road like glue, and the direct steering response makes you feel you not driving an ordinary car.
The diesel engine in this car is so full of torque, and at the same time doesn't sound a bit like a diesel engine.
I have driven several Vauxhall and Audi diesels, and they sound like a tractor and offer no feel of driving.
The interior and exterior styling makes you feel like a star.
Very comfortable with up to 60MPG on motorway, and the 6th gear in this car is amazing, in that you will not even realise what speed you are driving.
You can be sure to see your similar powered opponent in your rear view mirror quite often.
Buy one if you want to drive and not to be driven...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
