Thinking of buying a 159 or a GT
My 156 is approaching 4 years old and I kind of get the feeling based on past experience that at some point I'm going to have to part with some serious cash in repairs.
So I'm considering a new 159 (2.2 petrol) or a GT (2.0 petrol), however before parting with even more cash I'd like to get a idea of the common problems, general reliability and practicality of both models.
I've still got to convince the wife, she'd go for a drab dull new 3 series.
Has Alfa really addressed the previous reliability issues with the 159 ?
Is the 159 really built like a BMW ?
Does either car suffer the usual knocking and squeaking suspension problems ?
Can you get a couple of suitcases in the GT's boot ?
Any thoughts would be welcome.
Time and tide wait for no man.
