After 14 years of car ownership, I've finally bought my first Alfa: a 2008 159 1.9JTDM Lusso sportwagon. I've spent 250 km in it driving it back home to Dublin and I love it. Only two niggles:
1. I can't get the trip computer to come up. It's like the button on the indicator stalk isn't working. Everything else seems fine (Settings, Blue&Me, etc), but nothing I press seems to get the trip computer up. Am I doing something stupid or has anyone seen this before?
2. There seems to be a knocking coming from behind the dash. It's like something rolls around when cornering/acceleration and hits off something. I see lots of threads here on this, but the strange thing about my issue is that it doesn't seem to be noticeable when there's someone sitting in the passenger seat! This is why I never noticed it on the test drive. Has anyone else seen this?
