Brera Issues : Power / Noises
Have just completed a 2,600 mile trip to the south of France (av mpg 41.4 ave speed 41), great GT car for long trips, munches the miles like no other BM's included.
As with all my Alfas there is a but:
The DPF regen seemed to be taking place every c 340 miles , is this normal ? engine seemed to be running on three cylinders, lack of power had to drop to 4th and floor it to keep going, after a few miles all was well again.
Suspension noises, noticed when crawling in traffic and coasting either in gear or neutral there is a grinding/clicking noise from the front end, this dissappears when under power, Sounds like a wheel bearing, (car has done 21,000 miles).
Also when traking up drive from a stand still there is a clunk from the front end as though something is loose.
