Re: Hmmm... fast enough?
I think the Brera is a beautiful and very capable car; many of the negative aspects are heavily publicised and the positives less so.
This weekend, however, I felt the pain once again. I went down to a stag weekend on the south coast which entailed a round-trip of areound 350 miles, mainly A-Roads and Mway. Due to the weather I drive very steadily - mainly 70mph on cruise. On this trip, the car averaged 33mpg.
Now I know there is the argument that low 30's is not bad for a 200bhp car, and this might be right, but I can't help thinking that many of those ponies are lost hauling the car about and therefore the performance that might make up for the consumption is not fully realised.
This said, I'll reserve all further comment and judgement until I've had the car properly checked out. If I've got a lemon, then action will be taken to sort it.
P.S. I am not knocking the Brera - my observations are based on my car alone, which I suspect might not be all that it should be.
