Alfa Brera 2.4 jtdm 2008

Hi, new to the world of alfa's and i'm looking to buy a brera 2.4 jtdm. At roughly 40-50,000 miles, what should i be looking out for when buying one of these? Are there any common problems, and what sort of mileage can be done before things start getting a bit tired!?

Thanks in advance, ian.

welcome ian, if i was you i would try and get one which has had the d.p.f and e.g.r deleted already.
that may sound gobbldygooke to you now but after owning one for a while you will know all
about them.
oh and check to see if it has green steering fluid not red fluid.

Check for if the timing belt has been done if not factor in 400 for that.

In the last 2 years I've replaced the egr valve, it's a 10-15 min job to do yourself with help from the forum and saves about 100 off quoted garage costs. Oil cooler pipes were replaced when they split, started to get a small oil drip that quickly developed to a bigger problem. Panoramic roof cracked when a stone chip became a crack running the length of the roof ( dont wash the car on the hottest day of the year )Mine also has a slight misfire everyone and then and smoke on cold start up I believe I have a faulty injector that's next on my list to sort.
