Re: Cambelt gone at 4.5yrs / 38k miles
Tou can contact ARUK, thier number is in the Owners Handbook, they may not pay for the total cost of repairs, but they will be willing to assist with a fiar portion of it, as long as the car has a service history. The handbook does state a service interval of 72K or 5 years for the belt and as stated above it was revised to 3 years or 36K whichever is soonest, but Alfa will only inform you of this if you go into the dealer for a service AND if they remember about it.
All is not lost though as there companies that will supply and fit recon engines for VERY reasonable rates, have a look in the Indys forum and look for one near you.
