Wonder if anyone is experiencing similar difficulties with their extended warranty. My 147 selespeed is just over 2 years old. The 'extended warranty' now applies (years 2 & 3). Three annoying problems have surfaced:
1. The computer keeps flashing 'Rear Foglight Failure' despite the fog light working normally. The Dealer and Alfa South Africa state that it is likely to be a wiring problem that must be checked by an auto electrician. They are insistent that cost for the labour to check this is not covered by the extended warranty !
2. Remote central locking does not work anymore. Again, cost of finding the wiring fault by the auto electrician is not covered by extended warranty.
3. Petrol cap does not lock. Again the new petrol cap is not covered by the extended warranty.
It seems ridiculous to pay out of my own pocket for these problems which should not be occurring on a 2 year old vehicle. I am not sure if I am being ripped off by the locals. Has anybody had a similar experience ? If one reads the extended warranty, the wording can be interpreted to exclude everything on the vehicle ! Has anybody tried contacting Alfa headquarters directly with these kind of grieviances ?
