I see this has been discussed on a few other threads,
However, I have a 156 2.5 v6 03 model 18k mileage 06 plate.
therehas been a knocking sound and feel under the engine since I test drove it. Bought it from a local alfa specialist, who said he would get it sorted. Took it back a while later. to be told they had searched around it but couldn't find anything wrong !!! ???
I needed the car back at that point, so I have been putting up with it. Now I'm taking back again, he says they have been looking into the problem (contacting alfa etc) as the owner of the gargage has a sports wagon with the same problem. He was told by alfa it's the anti roll bar. it's a problem with a lot to post 2001 cars. He says he was told by alfa that it is NOT considered a problem, so it was not corrected under warranty.
He says he needs to remove the bar weld some metal to the joints and put it back. about 5 hours labour but he will only charge me for 3.
First. is this all B/S ??? also as this knocking was there from day one.should he sort it free of charge. He gave me a written personal 12 months warranty, to cover all but wear and tear.
I don't want to be taken for a muppet !!!!!!
