re: 2.2 JTS hesitation - now with new IMPORTANT information & escalation details
I should be picking up my 2.2 Brera S next week and have been in touch with ARUK about the hesitation problem and this is the reply that I got from Natalie Coxall Alfa Romeo Brand Ambassador. This seems to support the general impression that members already have about the probable lack of action by ARUK!
