Alfa 156 2.4 JTD

Well Happy Kind of Urgent, buying a GT JTD

Hi, joined a couple of days ago and meant to post this earlier but unfortunately the forum has been down (as im sure you all know )

I am off to look at an 04 reg GT JTD with 44k on the clock tomorrow (14th).
Anything in particular I should look for ?

Re: Kind of Urgent, buying a GT JTD

In my experience (I bought an 05 with 48,000 miles so not too different) not too much, a couple of things though:
  • Make sure you're happy with the clutch and it's not too heavy.
  • On the test drive listen for sqeaking around the tailgate - mine had this problem (not all do) but it was sorted by the dealer.
  • Sqeaking suspension - not really a problem but can annoying on occasion fortunately sorted under warranty and was to do with one of the front wishbones. Drive it over a bumpy bit of road and keep an eye out for it.

No doubt you'll get some more tips off others. Either way take it for a test drive be sensible and if you do buy a good one you won't regret it - a special car in my opinion but then I'm biased.
