I owned a 156 from new (1999) for 6 years, admittedly it was a 2.0TS, but I do remember that it was very light on it's feet, with secure handling (although mid corner bumps did upset it towards the end of my ownership, stub axle bushes I was told) transverse ridges tend to crash through the suspension, the steering was wonderfully light and communicative and although mine was 100% reliable the most unfavorable review that I have ever read about a car said, that they were "as reliable as a smack addict" not an Alfa enthusiast me thinks!
