Looks good for 1000 but people are still scared by the cost of maintenance and unfounded reliability concerns.
A deal for someone but it's a buyer market with plenty to choose.

It looks like a good deal for 1k going on face evidence, but as dgmayhead has pointed out it is very much a buyers market and I'd imagine GT's are now unlikely to be sold to anyone other than an enthusiast?

I semi-reluctantly sold my 2004 GT a few days ago for not much less, but was lucky enough that the previous owner wanted it back when I said I was selling up thus saving me quite a bit of potential hassle.

Just sit tight and have a bit of patience, the odd car i have sold has taken the best part of a month to go, just need to hold your nerve.

If anything there are fewer for sale, looking on Autotrader a year ago there were about 140 for sale, last time i looked there were just a 100.

It looks quite decent anyway.

I bought mine 6 months ago. Was an 05 plate with 90k on the clock for 1k seems to be he going rate for an 11yr old car. It's a shame because I feel they should command more.

Thats no money at all for such a great looking car

The thing against them is that they can be high maintenance at this age, and often even younger

Its a conundrum for sure...such a lovely looking car,great handling and potentially very reliable IF you get one at the right point in its life and all the majors are done.

Whenever I decide to sell I always come up against the same problem...what to replace if with...??? The weekend blat to dartmoor and back once again reminded me how good my GT is.

As far as them being cheap ,they are. Way to cheap considering how much car you get..but this is part of the reason we bought them in the first place!!

ongoing Maintenance means they end up costing about as much as the average German of the same age but relative rarity,superior styling and handling IMO makes it worthwhile.

This particular set of pro's and cons is not for most as people tend to opt for relability over styling ..hence the low second hand values.

For what it's worth I think the prices will rise as the Giulia puts Alfa back on the map with the general.public...many won't be able to afford a new Giulia so will look at prior Alfa offerings.

The GT is the obvious choice as neither the Giulietta or Brera have the handling prowess and both the 156 and 147 lack the presence of the GT unless they are GTA...Brera has a shout on looks though..

I fully expect residuals to rise in the coming months ...

Looks nice for the money, and is the best colour exterior/interior combo IMO.

Which engine does it have?

The fact it's a JTS might also have weight with that one too.
