GT buying advice
For 2 1/2 years I was an 156 JTS sportwagon owner. I ummed and erred for ages before getting one because of mixed reports and the Alfa reliability image. I loved the car but I was kind of relieved when I had to sell it due to getting a company car.
The JTS engine whilst a joy to drive was a nightmare, it had a warning light of some sort for 50% of my ownership, never resolved despite spending a fair bit of cash, it was sensor related though it drove fine.
The suspension was rubbish and cost a bit to replace
Cambelt costs blah blah
Now my company car scheme is being replaced with a cash top up and I’m thinking its time for a bit of coupe fun but I need something semi sensible especially on the fuel side so diesel seems like a good idea and in my heart i’m missing driving an Alfa Romeo.
By most accounts the GT diesel seems like a good buy but does anyone know if the suspension is the same as the 156 (I think it uses the same platform) if so is it a nightmare?
Is it worth getting the remap – fuel economy is on my mind more than speed?
Is reliability a step up on the 156, most reviews seem ok?
Is a high mileage buy suicide – 100K plus?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
