My 147 Faults
Back in June last year I bought an Alfa red 147 1.6 Lusso from my local dealer here in Belfast.
I love the car, and get some great looks from the girls but my car has a few problems.
Firstly the radio: my car doesn't have the Bose system, so I get the standard CD unit with the equaliser. But, the equaliser didn't work, so after 2 months I was able to get the unit replaced under warranty as it seemed to be a 'factory mis-match'. The equaliser still doesn't work.
I gave up on that one, and have decided to upgrade the speakers and buy an amp instead.
Three days later the passenger window stopped working properly- you could let the window down, say halfway, and then pull the button up to close the window and the window will go down fully. To get the window closed, I have to pull the button up, let it go, pull it up again, let it go again etc until the window closes as it will only go up a inch at a time! The car was back at the dealer twice, (who are completely crep by the way), who said they found a trapped wire and the problem was fixed, except it wasn't, and then second time the anti trapping mechanism was giving a dodgy reading and this was reset so the window will work properly, but it still doesn't.

Has anyone else came across these problems or is it just my car, which according to the dealer was one of the first in the UK as it was registered a year ago. [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
