Yesterday I had a test drive with an alfa 156 1.8 TS model 9/1999 (the one with the 144 hp) and 31.000 Km. I observed that the gearbox is relatively vague and slow in the changes especially from 1st to 2nd. Is this something natural in the particular model? Also I observed that when you put the switch of the climate control to the position in order to bring you the air in the face it brings the air in the legs. What could that be? Is it something serious? Also the needle of the rev counter seems to have an oscillation between 500 - 1300 rpm when the car is moving without gear in the gearbox. This oscillation stops when the car stops and the rev counter stabilizies to 800 rpm.
Thanks a lot
