Re: Problems with my brand new Alfa 147 (after 2 weeks)
My dad strongly advised me against buying an Alfa too. Lo and behold I got electrical problems in the first week, airbag warning lights etc, but these were cured by my local dealer. My car was an import and apparently a cause of early electrical problems on imported cars into the UK is that they get jump-started at the docks. Anyway, after these initial hiccups (which I conveniently didn't tell my dad about), I've had no significant problems since (3.5 years later). In summary - get the dealer to sort it out, and fingers crossed you won't have to visit them again until it's service time. Good luck.
