Re: warranty questions and ?pre-purchase inspection
If you get down to brass tacks, there are probably only two aspects of running a GTA that you need serious financial protection against.
1)Cambelt failure...so before you buy the car, the belt and tensioner MUST be changed if the belt has covered 45,000 miles or more..forget the 72 mullarkey, or even 60. They are unreliable from 45 onwards..full stop. I just don't care if Alfa still say 72,000 miles... far too many Alfa V6s just do not get that far, and its heartbreak if the damn belt fails.
2) Diff/gearbox failure. Yes it does happen on all the V6s, and the 3.2 just stresses things that little bit more.
I would want a warranty to cover this lot for longer than three months..12 or 24 months would help me sleep at night.
By comparison brakes discs are very cheap to buy. If the cars has surface rust onthe discs..no worries, as that will clear quickly. If however there are sheets of scale dropping off, or you can feel deep ridges in the discs..they need replacing
Great car though.
I'm sorry to hear Jordans are no longer Alfa dealers. They supported Colin Metcalfe when he organised the Northern Alfa days at Fort Paull. I had no dealings with them personally so don't know how they were rated by customers
Good Luck with the GTA
