The woes of a 159 Sportwagon

Well after 10 months of owning a stunning looking 159 Sportwagon 2.0 jtd Ti it's still not fixed... The list...
• rear stop lights blow as I leave the garage after picking up the car
• poorly fitted door seals
• front suspension camber out... faulty suspension arm
• New EGR valve
• badly fitted tailgate (factory) chipped paint off both bumper and door where they touched... now painted by dealer
• dashboard badly fitted
• Vibration through the car from day 1. Finally acknowledged by the dealer to be an engine problem Alfa engineer to sort!!
• missfire and hesitation then woosh.... no power - still not fixed
• buzzing from loose trim in dash board (or small Italian trying to get out)

That's it to date. Looking forward to the day when I can enjoy the car... can I wait that long

Wow, thats a fair list for a new car. Sorry to hear you are having such grief.
If its any consolation, when I mart exed my 159 with 88K on the clock, it was rattle free, problem free and running like a dream!

So if they can sort it, you will hopefully have years of cracking motoring. Good luck.
