Teach me on 156 Automatics?

Hi im thinking of buying an Alfa 156 selespeed automatic. i have been told they are terribly expensive to maintain and get fixed if they have any issues. is this true?

What is the 156 likely to cost in general use and servicing? Will i need another bank account?

156 1.9 mjet 16v

main issue is usually no garages know how to fix them and end up costing owners an arm an a leg to fix unbeknowing to them, . simple fixes and usually this tends to be just adjustments of clutch rod length and a recalibration

on these forums there is a lot of shared advise that is so helpful to fix selespeeds

remember the system is electo-mechanical clutch system of a manual box and often very reliable and ignorance of how they work often gives them a bad reputation

you could say its like marmite ........you either love them or hate them
