Alfa's aren't the only cars with problems.
My dad owns a Merc C200 Kompressor, it is 8 months old:
He had to go to an out of town meeting this morning, so he got his Merc out the garage and while reversing out of the driveway there was a bang from the engine bay. And then there was smoke coming from the engine bay, so he opened the bonnet, and then there was a small fire in the engine bay, and he had to put it out with a fire extinguisher.
He was late for his meeting, so he took his Alfa, and I phoned Mercedes Customer Care and they came and collected the car, so I followed the tow truck to the dealer so I could tell them what happened, and the service manager complained, asking, "Why did you use a fire extinguisher? It makes a mess!"
And people mock Alfa's because they rattle, at least they don't sizzle!
if you have to ask, then you'll never understand.
