They are no worse than any other brand in my experience but like any other brand they need maintenance, especially when they are over 5 years old, new belts etc every 3 years, oil and filter pref every 6 months, underside inspection pref summer, i remove all arch liners and wash under before a dose of wayoyl or similar.
I also clean suspension once a year and spray with silicone maintenance oil as a preventative procedure, it seems to work because so far i have had no mot failures on my Alfa's.
A good wax once a month if poss and thats it really, worth the time and effort imo, and the best part is the driving, ciao
