Just looking for a bit of advice. I currently drive an 06 plate 1.9 JTDM, which has about 66k on the clock. I bought it from a main dealer just over a year ago and have done about 18k miles in that time. Now, Iíve got a nagging feeling that things might start to get expensive repair-wise over the next few months. The dealer warrantee has now expired (it had been back 3 times for various minor issues) and Iím sure the engine is starting to sound a bit rough.
I love the car though and am intent on sticking with Alfa through think and thin. The dealer has a nice, red 159 at the moment. It is a 07 plate 2.2 JTS and has 32k on the clock. In terms of financing, I guess I could get it for not much more than I currently pay.
There is also a 1.9 TI, which has only done 3k, but thatís a bit out of my price range.
What do you reckon? Is the petrol much less economic than the diesel? Am I being an idiot?
