GT Owners fight back !

What Car rated the sumptuous GT as a 3star car which is plainly laughable !

The readers had others ideas though.........

Re: GT Owners fight back !

I remember reading these when I was looking for my GT and thought it was a little harsh from What Car and the readers were right to fight back If you look at the Parkers write up they give it a 4.5 stars out of 5

Re: GT Owners fight back !

Excellent! That just goes to show you. Trouble is it's the What Car review the average Joe will believe rather than real owners experiences. With no 166 replacement yet my next is a toss up between a GT or a 159. Hope the residuals aren't too strong!!

Re: GT Owners fight back !

What Car and the associated Autocar are proven Alfa-haters! They slate most of the 156-platform Alfas, I think the 156 GTA got one or two stars! I don't know who is more stupid, them or the people that believe them!

Re: GT Owners fight back !

less satisfying!
more expensive to run!!!

questions around reliability!!!

It makes me sick these kind of preconceptions.

On the plus side, do we really want to see as many GTs as say 3-series Beemers or Audi A4s? I can't honestly say that I do. I positively enjoy the exclusivity on the UK roads of this beauty.

Altruistic me wants the best for Alfa and to wipe the smug smile off most of the auto "press" in the UK.
Selfish me wants the marque to stay as an enthusiasts car to continue exclusivity and well deserved high residuals

Baaaad me, baaaad me....

Well, the truth is in the market place. The Gts have the best retained values of any Alfa in living memory and even beats some Audis.

All it needs is for Alfa to hold it's nerve with the new models and not revert to type by "re-positioning"
