Re: Alfa 159 service query
I have just gone through the service book, this was effective from Jul08. The Brera and 159 seem to have the same schedule.
1st service 21,000 miles +/- 1000
2nd service 42,000 miles +/- 1000
Some checks to be carried out 'more often (consult dealer)' e.g. disc pad wear, fluid levels, belts, oil & filter etc.
BUT it also says the actual oil change interval will be signaled by the cars own computer.
AND Brera only - for town driving or harsh climates and low annual mileage, oil and filter should be changed every year.
Normal use replace timing belt after 5 years or 4 under heavy use.
There is no requirement for an annual service. (with the oil exception)
I do not know how different this is to previous schedules, I guess that you will need to check.
