1st year of 159 ownership

Before buying my 159 sportwagon last year I spent alot of time on this site. So to help anone else doing the same here is a lowdown of the experience

bought 1st sept 2010 a 60k 1.9 lusso SW from CoOperative in Derby. Fantastic car to drive, lots of smiles and looking back once parked.

Got a 'check engine' warning after 2 months, cost 50 or so for main dealer to fix as the lose part not covered by warranty. next month, next warning light, this time the DPF has failed ! Northgate Alfa in Canterbury replaced this under warranty ( phew ! )

err .. diesel , not too often as good MPG

still smiling still looking back once parked

service at Mobitech in Canterbury, big one at 400 but lots done, will use again.

Passed MOT after 1 year and 12500 miles cost ....0

Really pleased with my first dip into Alfa ownership

In short, buy one, buy the newest your budget allows and enjoy.
