having started this thread last November, mine is still playing up, garage I bought the car from washed their hands of it, saying that they could never repeat the fault, but it plays up every single day when starting from cold, - takes 4 or 5 attempts, - also on occasion does a very strange thing that as soon as I engage reverse sometimes everything cuts out immediately , - so surely some wiring problem???
Have to say that my Alfa owning experience has not been good, - having owned Ducati's for years I thought that the warnings people gave me were over reaction, but in truth it is exactly this type of frustrating experience that causes all our cars to drop so much value so quickly. Such a shame.
My fear is that taking it to a garage will result on a very large bill as they try one thing after the other, not good.
It has got so bad that on weekend we even take the VW Touran out and leave the GT on the drive.... Problems like this just cause such a negative exerince my kids just laugh at the GT now, - they cried a few years ago when I got rid of my 3 series BMW...can'y see that happening here.
