Alfa serving in pembrokeshire - SW Wales


I recently bought a 5 year old Alfa 156 selespeed. I really love it and it's exactly what I need... except I've had continual nightmares with the semi-automatic gears. The error light comes on when I change gear and then it won't chnage gear and then when I stop it goes in to neutral and stays there for ages. Can be very stressful at the best of times. Then this morning the same thing but it absolutley refused to change gear (normally it does eventually), then my wife noticed a pool of oil underneath the engine.

I've taken it to Ashmoles in Swansea on 5 separate occassions - 3 for this reason, 1 for a £1200 service and 1 was a wasted trip. They have been rubbish. But living in South West Wales it seems I don't have any choice. Can anyone recommend another garage nearby (ish) as I fear I will have to get rid of it. Having an unreliable car and an unreliable garage is the worst.

Thanks for any help you can give.
