122,000 miles on our 2002 2.4 10Valve 150 SW. It going in for its second cam belt change tomorrow, and is having a water pump just as a precaution. The original is still fine. The clutch take up is high, but I think they are all a bit like that, and anyway its bound to be worn at 122k really
Repairs: 1x DM front crank pulley, two upper wishbones, thermostat, battery, handbrake cable...and apart from that, just normal servicing and a previous cam belt change 60,000 miles ago, one set of brake pads, three sets of tyres, three sets of windscreen wiper blades.
What more can I say, except that Alfa did what it does best...'upgrade' the car with the 20valve engine and turn it from reliable to unreliable....just typical.
Ours uses a very small amount of oil between services. Not enough to even raise a yawn.
The 2.4JTD 10 valve has quietly earned itself a reputation as being one of the better Alfa packages to own in overall terms. Its a great car. Just make sure its maintained properly and you will love it.
