Need a bit of help/advice from you all.
My 147 is a couple of months out of warranty and I now have to fight to select 4th gear. (It is so bad I am going straight from 3rd to 5th and vice versa.)
Took it to the dealer for 8am Monday as I needed the car urgently - rnag at midday, "hadn't looked at it but knew it was urgent so will get to it after dinner!" Rang again at 4pm "Yes its ready waiting to be collected"
End result "We reckon the synchro on 4th gear has gone - £450 labour £150 for parts + the VAT - shall we book it in"
The car has already been back to the twice for the usaual 3rd-4th gear fault (the last time 2 months ago) and they reckon that this latest fault isn't related. I am in the process of writing a letter to Alfa GB to complain.
What I want to know is has anyone had any success getting Alfa to help out with this problem out of warranty or can I expect to end up out of pocket! If so to what tune?
