Had my 159 serviced by SimplyAlfa yesterday.
The 72K service including cam belt. All fluids and filters, water pump as the belt was off and a thorough going over.
I was a little paranoid of suspension issues having read about some of the problems on the forum, so asked for this to be checked.
And nothing needed doing!
Really enjoyed the 25 mile drive back home, felt really taught and great to drive.
In comparison, the last car I had, 2003 Saab 9-3SS 2.0t, was a dog. I had it at 50K and sold it at 65K. Had nothing but problems with suspension, steering, aux belt, etc.. Cost me a fortune.
Have both fingers crossed as I write this, but, the previous idea that Alfas were destined for the breakdown truck, seem totally unfounded to me! Touch wood, turn round 3 times...
Great car, love the ownership experience so far. Have done 12K miles in 6 months, looking forward to the next 12K and beyond.
