Question about specs!


Just trying to get my head around the specs for the 156, specifically the 1.9 & 2.4 JTD.

Did all facelifts come with side airbags? I checked Parkers and it seemed to suggest they do.

Which models have a 6 speed box, and is it reliable?

Whats the Stereo like!! I understand most have a Bose system, but I know some standard Radio/CD's can be a bit rubbish. Also do they have an Aux input?

I have had a search around bit not quite managed to find the information I am after, hence posting

Re: Question about specs!

the 2x 2001 model 2.4 jtd have both had side airbags in the seats.

the 20v 2.4 and 16v 1.9's had 6-speed boxes, both reliable.

I have always had a sony head unit in, its been fine and better sounding than the alfa 'fancy' head unit fitted to a 147 Ti I had.
no idea on aux input though.

Re: Question about specs!

Thanks for replying Jason

I actually meant to ask if pre-facelifts had airbags! From your post its seems most if not all 2.4jtd have them.

Glad to hear about the 6 speed boxed. My 130ps Mondeo has a 6 speeder and I would want to downgrade back down to a 5!

Did yo managed to get the steering wheel controls working with you Sony head unit?

Re: Question about specs!

Side airbags in the seats came in during 1999.
So a 2003 facelift will have them.
