Clutch gone on GT - only 30K miles. :-(
The clutch was starting to slip on my GT (standard engine, no chipping) so I took it to Kinghams of Croydon and got great service, good communication, so no problems with them.
Alfa UK offered some goodwill on the clutch replacement but I am still staring at a huge bill. The price of a new OEM clutch as well seems to be comparatively high compared to what you can pay for it on shop4parts.co.uk.
So basically I am seriously miffed with my GT. 30K on a carefully driven car with one clutch is not acceptable. Especially with a torquey diesel engine.
More galling is that it is a lease car and going back at the end of June so I am laying out all this money to kiss a car good bye in a short amount of time.
This does in no way spur me on to take another Alfa on a lease if they are this feeble. I feel that they should have replaced the clutch FOC instead of about knocking about 20% of the cost of clutch plus fitting.
What do you think?
Anyone have a good contact at Alfa UK?
I am really unhappy and won't buy Alfa again at this rate.
Boo hoo. :-(
