I have got a 2008 Alfa 147 selespeed...the warrente just expired in Mar 2011. ( I had it for 2 years)
I am sort of fans of Alfa, because of the sexy looking..and feeling of drive...but now..
I was thinking my next car gone be the New Giulietta..but now...
As a girl I do not much about car, but always do the regual serviceing and always take care of him (my little black Alfa147)
Anyway, lets cut it short. On Monday I picked up my car from the Panel & Paint during a small dent on the car, and find the indicate light on rear right is not working.
BUT Still Can drive and no other problem at all.
On the next day, I have taken my car back to the Panel guys to finger out what happened... They found the size of lightbowl they been replacement for me is wrong.. so they taken around 10-20mins to change it...
After that My Alfa can't turn on anymore ( can't start , just like dead)... we think mind because taking too long so the battery is gone, so they have jumpstart my car.. I am so happy and plan to go for shopping...
Not more than 3mins drive.. My car automatic change himself from Gear 3 to Gear 1.. and just STOP on the mid of the road....That is sososossoso dangerous !!!
It only showed once of MSC failure ..for 2 second?.. Just dead like that..
IF is it on the highway ! Is it gone STOP just like that ???
Now... My Garage people had looked it.. think just beacuse the Battery is not good..they have replacement it for me, Cost NZD 550.00 ( USD 450 ? )
Today, is my first visit on this website, But I have found hips other people have simillar problem..
It is very normal for Alfa?
It will just happen ?
It is normal for them just STOP by himself ?(The car)
Is the simple reason, battery is not good..the MCS will fault ? and It is not big problem?
I hope tomorrow ...all this drama will gone.....
Please share with me if you have same exprience.. and is your one been fixed ?
