1991 Alfa Romeo 164 Twin Spark 2.0 petrol from UK and Ireland
Bushes on trailing arms (rear) very worn but it has done 110,000 miles! Annoying rattle coming from rear shock which I have traced to bush (soon to be repaired). Broke the nearside door mirror off, price to repair £150. Severe tyre wear on front tyres due to poor tracking setup.
I am a bit of an Alfa nut to be honest. I have found that main dealer being fairly new (Fiat dealer) to be very very poor indeed as far as knowledge of the cars is concerned. Parts fairly reasonable but labour charges hurt. Major engine service cost £320. Tracking on front wheels should be done by main dealer only as I found out to my cost.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
