Summary:

A great car for Alfa enthusiasts

Faults:

Nothing so far. I have had the car three months.

General Comments:

I always wanted an Alfa Spider and I purchased it as a "fun" vehicle.

The car was in pretty good condition when I purchased it. The previous owner was an enthusiast.

I had the car completely checked and repaired where necessary by an Alfa specialist.

The car handles very well and is comfortable considering it's size.

Performance is still good.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Affordable convertible for a patient owner

Faults:

Front braking system: disks, pads, rotors.

Rear braking system: disks, pads, rotors.

Engine oil leaks dramatically.

Transmission fluid leaks dramatically.

Electrical system is very poor: flashers work on and off, the lighting system (low and high beams, park lights) only works on a good day...

Rust was an issue, but was taken care of by shooting fiberglass under the car.

General Comments:

Don't you love a red convertible with black interior, though?

Sale price was cheap.

Drives like a race car and makes heads turn... Behind that wheel, you'll get noticed here in Canada!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
