Re: interesting topgear letters of complaint about Alfa
>>Here in Johannesburg (probably about 10 million people) have 3 main alfa dealers. maybe 5 accredited service centres. Of course, they're all a waste of time, regardless of the distance they are from your house.[/QUOTE]<<
I guess thatís not too bad as long as you never leave the city. IMO every carís reputation in the long term is only as good as its dealerís. I lived for years in the US and saw several foreign manufacturers lose their shirts simply because they tried to sell cars before investing in a decent dealer network. In my experience Alfa are going the same way in the UK.
