I am currently looking for a second hand 156, Got my eye on a 2001 1.8ts with 80,000 on the clock.Told a few blokes at work about it and after sucking air through their teeth I was generally told that It will cost me an "arm and a leg", "too high mileage"and "my mate had one that broke down all the time" and that it should be avoided at all costs.
1. Is this true
2. Isnt this just hearsay everyone seems to say the same thing even if they have never owned a Alfa.
3. Surely 80,000 miles is not much for a modern car (full service history)
Sorry to go on but I need to be sure that I am going to purchase a car that is reliable by the way how many miles can these engines do thanks in advance for the replies
