Re: 159 2.4JTDm Courtesy Car
Lucky you. I took my 159 2.4 in the other day and was given a 57 plate 147! Needless to say a good looking car but no offence to anyone here who has one but it was one of the worst cars I have ever driven! The turn in was fast, nimble and positive due to the car being so light I think, but appart from that there was nothing to like. The ride was rock hard but twitchy while still having a weird 'flowting' sensation through corners, the gear box was like a puggs, the lights bad etc..... The newer generation of alfa'a are a mile better than the older one's dont you think? I love the drive of the 159 Brera, and GT- but I carnt see how the 147 is competitive to any car in its class other than being cheap?
But I suppose its well done to alfa for making better cars now!!
