147 road test - gearbox? Urgent help!!
i've just test driven a 147 i am seriously considering purchasing.
It's my first drive of a 147 , this one being a 2001 1.6 Lusso.
I have a query regarding the gear change and would appreciate a quick response so i can make a decision this weekend. Firstly the gearbox felt surprisingly 'floppy' to me. Secondly i had some difficulty on occasion actually selecting gears, particularily third. It was OK when not rushed and at low revs, but anything quicker or hurried was a consistent problem.
Should this be????
My old 156 had a very easy and precise box, with no floppiness so i was a little surprised.
Cheers in anticipation.
Nice people drive Alfa's
