New 159 TI 1.9 JTDM - Exhaust Fumes
I have an intermittent fault, 1 or 2 times a week when coming to a stop after driving for 3-4 miles at approx 70mph, diesel fumes appear from the front of the bonnet and then are blown through into the cabin this lasts until the engine is allowed to cool down or continuous driving continues for a 15 minute period. It is really embarrassing as everyone looks at an Alfa!
The local dealer has had the car back twice (once for a week!)and cannot replicate the fault. Also the fuel consumption is appalling over 4,000 miles the average mpg is 32! This has included several journeys long distance, even resetting the trip and driving at a constant 56mph the counter never registers an average above 40mpg!
Has anyone had a similar experience?
I have now booked the car into another main dealer, to see if they can find anything.
Love the car but very frustrated
All the best
