Just test driven a 1.9 JTD GT and gears seemed very stiff
Earlier this afternoon i test drove a 54 plate 1.9 JTD with 90,000 miles on the clock. Prior to getting into the car the dealer mentioned that the gears were stiff and this happens a lot on Alfa GT's.
When i drove the car on numerous occasions it wouldn't go into 3rd gear, now i don't know if it was me trying to change the gear too quick but is this common with the GT or is the gearbox on its way out?
I.ve had a 147 and 156 in the past and never had this problem before, that said any car infact.
Any knowledge of this would be greatly appreciated.
Other than that the car was really tempting, i need to go back and take a further look and test all the electronics out but the stiff gearbox just slightly worries me.
