Hi Shaheed, do not wonder.. Get a new 2003 Golf and you will see that its reliability (and thats for almost all modern european cars except the Fords) its crap, and has nothing to do with the good German reliability of the previous decade. Just this previous week, my friend who has a 2 years old VW Polo 1.6 GTi had to pay for a new gearbox, cost 1600€. So the real problem is not to find a reliable car, but to find a decent dealer.
I wish you sort your problems out soon and enjoy your bella

Not once have any of there cars been to the garage other than when a service was due, and not once did they get left at the side of the road!
The thing about the alfa, is that its individualistic, and has great styling! It sets you apart of the rest (but maybe they'r the ones that are right!)!
thanks for the "speedy recovery" wishes, trust me, I hope I get my lil' babe back too!
