Re: Potential new Alfa 159 owner
Likewise, there are many others more knowledgeable, but my experience has been very positive;
'56 159 1.9 Lusso SW
No major problems, now done 45k very comfortable miles.
30k miles on first set of Pirellis, second set now evenly half worn
At least 42mpg on mixed driving and around 48mpg on motorways.
I looked at and drove Beemers, Audis, Saab, Passats etc before buying but once I saw and drove the 159 there was no turning back.
By the way, if you do live in Gloucester as your name leads me to believe, I can recommend Fish Bros in Swindon but if you are in fact based in the States then possibly too far to travel for services.
Best of luck
