156 2.4JTDm

Magnificent design feature

We've had our 2.4Jtdm for more than a year now and the battery - which is Alfa labelled and looks fairly old - was showing its age. I had never topped it up as it was obviously a sealed model. Removed it to fit my spare and discovered that it isn't sealed at all and therefore really needed a drink. Topped it up put it on charge and it was up to 12.6 in about half an hour.

So, FIAT and co, WTF is the point of fitting a battery in such a way that it has to be removed from the car - using three different tools - to top it up? And what are the odds that a service monkey ever did anything other than give it a glance or, on a quiet day, a wipe?
