Well, having own the GT for 7 months and put 12k miles on the clock, it was time for the 36k service. As the 2nd year was also about to expire, I decided to compile a list of all issues I experienced.
Booked the car at Sunwin Derby and ......
4 days later all issues but 2 were sorted out !!!
Rainsensor operations => replaced
Oil leak => crankshaft and steering pump replaced. While they were at it they also replaced the cambelt !
Erratic Passenger window operation unit => replaced
Boot rattling => bootlid seal replaced
I was extremely and positively impressed as all this work was done under warranty so FOC, only paid £249 for the service, a BARGAIN !!!
Things they couldn't fix:
Stereo volume auto adjustment according to speed => warranty is 12 month only
Roof gutter rubber paint peeling off => they reckon the entire roof must be resprayed. Any one having the same problem ?
Well, glad to be back in the GT after driving 250 miles in a basic 147 1.6
BTW, Sunwin Derby has kept the Alfa servicing franchise but dropped the sales franchise, so expect top class customer service as they are now dedicated to servicing !
