few questions on a 147 gearbox and clutch
hello alfa people, just about to buy a 147 1.6 lusso, its done 34000, i have managed to pick a good deal through a larger car suppliers, ive got it for 5600 with 3 new tyre new exhaust, 6 months road tax and a years warrenty parts and labour.
my only issue is with the test drive. i drove it today and really struggled with the gearbox, going from 2nd to 3rd was nearly impossible, the salesman told me thats how an alfa gear box drives but im not convinced, the stick moves around a lot when its in gear, it like trying to put it into 5th from second to locate 3rd gear.
the clutch pedal also creaks a lot, it feels like the clutch cable is under a lot of strain,
the salesman told me its been to a alfa specialist and they say the gearbox is fine. im still waiting to see a copy of the report.
the salesman also said he will re send it to the specialist for another look at the box and clutch.
so am i being daft and thats the way they are or is it a sign of problems and should i walk away and keep looking.
any advice will be gratefully recieved!!
