Re: Buying (2nd-hand) and Living with Alfa GT
Been having a tough time of it with the GT.
- got a tyre changed at Kwik Fit, they advised getting the tracking done but it has been horrible since. It pulls to the left, the steering wheel isn't straight and it feels unbalanced. Been back twice (evem to a different branch) but they have failed to put it right. I'm giving them one more shot this weekend and then going somewhere else.
- gear stick 'sticks', i.e. won't centre. I have it on good authority that the linkage just needs greasing and cleaning but have not got around to getting underneath and doing this yet
- and woe, on the way home tonight, the car felt to loose power when I put my foot down, like the engine isn't breathing correctly. Looking at other forums, I think this is most likely to be the EGR valve, but it has not done it before and has come on quite suddenly.
I'm so disappointed because I've gone from the best driving experience I've ever had, to driving a car that doesn't handle, accelerate or change gear at all well.
