147 JTD - accelerator lag & warranty qustion
I had a look at a couple of 147 JTD Q2's yesterday, similar price, one was a 57, the other an 08.
I was thinking the 08 would be the best bet as it is still in warranty, but when i drove it, it seemed to have a bit of lag when pulling off in first from stationary, until it hit 2000rpm, then it picked up - i didn't notice the same thing in the 57 one.
the garage owner said it had been sitting dormant on his forecourt for a while and that's why it was sluggish, but i'm unsure. any ideas?
I thought that I may be able to get it sorted under the warranty, but I wondered if there is an issue with the fact it hasn't a full main dealer service history (once at alfa, once by alfa workshop); Do Alfa insist on it always being serviced by them to have warranty work done?
