Most manufacturers do cover warped discs in the first year, but Alfa dont - why cos theyd go bankrupt with all the claims. Even if you have 1 mile on the clock and they are like a melted frisby they are unlikely to do them under warranty, but you can but try. But if you have to pay, shop around, or poss go direct to brembo (or whomever makes the GTA discs). Replacing discs is pretty easy, or just get your local all makes garage to do it.
Lesson - any fault always shout loud and make a fuss from the first day.
I ended up replacing all my discs at my cost after complaining about them from 10K to 18K with just a 'no fault found' answer. Funny that when the fronts were replaced, the vibration vanished. Sure that the vibration has screwd up my suspension so that it knock now!
Who is the dealer? Name and Shame
I think we should have a dealer guide on this site, where you can vote for how you feel about a dealer and there scores in catagories of, for e.g, great, good, acceptable, poor, CR*P are displayed. That way we can see the good dealers and go there, and avoid the dealer that people think are crap and hopefully get them to buck their ideas up.
Can we do this???
