GT Dual Mass Flywheel Failure
Took my GT into the dealer this morning to reset the diagnostic which was showing a motor control failure and investigate a small oil leak. As it happened when I started the car this morning the dash warning had cleared itself but as the car was booked in still went along to get the oil leak checked.
What I thought would be a 15 min job was a little longer, mechanic came out to see me and gave me the joyful news that the Dual Mass Flywheel was the problem and it needed to be changed ASAP. As it needs the gearbox out to do the work it would also be a good idea to change the clutch.......
Price for the work........ something like £1350 I was so shocked I can't actually remember the exact figure. Oh and the cars out of warranty! work needs to be done no getting away from it so told them to go ahead, but **** its a lot of money so registered a query with Alfa UK, the cars only done 43K FFS.
So if your reading this and thinking of buying a GT keep some money back just in case!
