159 Sportwagon 2.4D Buyers Guide?

Hi all,

I am after a 159 Sportwagon, Definately a diesel, more than likely a Ti.

Im looking for a vehicle upto two years old, and am seriously considering a 2.4D

What things should I look for with these vehicles. I have never owned an Alfa, but have considered one everytime I change car, so now I have decided, no more considering lets do it!

I need a sportwagon as we have a Siberian Husky and need the extra space in the back, I dont like any estate on the market, and think of the sportwagon as more of an extended hatchback!

If there is a buyers guide I would like to be pointed towards it. If not, any advice and things to look for will be great posted here, so not only myself, but others interested can use it aswell.

Kindest Regards

I didnt have a ti but did have a 2.4 Lusso running on 18's. I did a write up last year on after I traded it in for a new 2.0JTDm, if you search for my posts it should take too much finding.

There is a lot of info regarding the ti in the threads, much of it around mpg and tyre wear which seem to be the most common problems, some issues regarding the DPF and EGR but not wide spread.

Spend time using the search and I'm sure you'll find what you're after
