Odometer reset by recall work
New to the forum, but an Alfa owner since 97 (146ti, Spider 3.0, 156 2.0JTS sw - still have the spider and 156).
I know there have been a couple of older threads about this already, but just as a heads up that it's still an issue:
Car (156) went in for warranty work on roll bar mountings and handbrake cable. Came back with that done and 'new speedo head' fitted as per a recall (which I never had notification of). Odometer reset to zero. Main dealer very unhelpful: 'er that's what happens and there's nothing we can do about it...' . Alfa UK as brilliantly obtuse as ever: 'what's happened?.... did you push the mileage reset button? No? Well the dealer must have then...oh you mean the actual mileage reading...hmm, well can somebody call you back....it'll be a good few days before they do though...'.
Has anyone managed to get their correct mileage reading restored? I saw a few posters in the earlier threads who seemed to be attempting a remedy but no one confirming that they actually did it.
