Re: Reset Service Indicator
I had a similar experience a couple of weeks ago when my 147 went into Reg Vardy in Glasgow for its second annual service. When I dropped it off I asked the receptionist to make certain the service indicator was reset and when I collected it he told me that it had been. No prizes, then, for guessing that when I checked it was still saying "600 miles to service" (or something like that). I returned to the reception desk and had to wait 45 minutes for a technician to try to reset it - unsuccessfully - and then tell me, "I don't know anything about these cars". I had to take it back the next week to have the indicator reset - as it happened, this wasn't a huge inconvenience as it was booked in anyway for warranty repairs to the front suspension, but it could have been. I don't know what is more depressing: having a guy in an Alfa Romeo service technician's jacket telling you he doesn't know what he's doing (washer fluid in the sump? that'll be fine, sir!), a service receptionist telling you a job's been done when it hasn't been, paying £213 for all this live entertainment, or getting home and finding that they've left the bonnet unlatched. If you ask me, Alfa dealers are sponsored by Audi/BMW.
