Gt - Rust
Bought my 04 GT 18 mths ago. I saw what I thought was a bit of overspray on the roof, where it meets the windscreen and being a **** I have ignored it.
Anyway.... re-noticed in last week and its bubbled up a bit. Took it to Alfa, its rust. Thought I would claim on the 8 year warranty and the alfa dealer agreed, took a photo and said he would submit the claim.
He phoned me today. It is rust and they are not going to cover it. They say that the car has obviously had a new windscreen and it was not fitted properly. This is not the case. Its the factory fit one and THAT was obviously not fitted properly. They are just refusing to even take a proper look at it.
I have had enough of this alfa attitude. Why give a 8 year warranty and then not honour it. I am thinking of taking it to a non-alfa bodyshop for a report but in reality I do not think I have any options.
I have had a nightmare with this car. I appreciate the reasons for this forum (community sharing tips and advice) but Alfa's are such bad quality. I have had 5/6 cars and never even heard of the grief we all get. They are stunning to look at and when they go they are fantastic but when was the last time you saw/heard of f@?*ing RUST on a car?
What would you do, any similar experience? Its a strip about 5mm wide and 2 cm long running along the edge where the windscreen meets the roof.
