Had my 2.4 JTDM 08 Plate for just over two years with 30k on the clock.
Front wheels mis-aligned on delivery and needed new tyres within six months which Alfa accepted and paid for.
EGR Valve caused problems in November 2009 and because the garage in question had ceased to be Alfa Romeo (no communication from anyone!) I had to pay for the replacement at £168.34 or call the AA and have it towed to an Alfa dealership 75 miles away!
Engine ceased to function in March 10 and towed to Carlisle for yet another EGR Valve replacement this time under warranty.
Back in Carlisle as I speak and 'injectors' apparently the cause of mis-firing and they are on a 'back order' and not expected to be available until August, but they don't say when in August so it could 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 weeks before I get it back.
E-mailed Alfa UK yesterday for some answers but no reply as yet.
Beautiful car and a joy to drive and I wish I could as I currently have a Fiat Bravo as a courtesy car .... now that it is NOT a good car.
Credit were credit is due, after e-mailing ARUK Customer Services I received a call yesterday advising that the parts will arrive on Friday! and I will probably get the car back next Tuesday as I am away on Monday.
Just puzzled as to why the dealership says August and then with intervention from ARUK it becomes the end of the week?
Also, forgot to mention on my original post:
Brake pedal problem on delivery due to a burr of metal on the pedal arm which was causing it not to release properly but still bringing the car to a standstill. Embarassing at traffic lights as you end up stopping 3 or 4 yards short!
Driver mirror - a piece of plastic appeared in the joint between the two sections and the whole unit had to be replaced.
Spoiler - This came loose and bowed in the middle so you could not open the boot.
Drivers window - dropping 2 - 3 inches rather than the half inch from the seal. Noticed this on another topic after I had posted yesterday. Dealership couldn't find the problem or a solution but it appears to have cured itself.
Perhaps my dealership should read this forum - they might learn something
Maybe I just got the rogue out of the batch?
