Alfa 159 lusso

Wave 159 lusso , start / stop

Hi folks
Having recently purchased a 159 lusso, I am pleased with car , but often frustrated by the delay in responding or failure to respond at all , so have to repeatly press start button to start car.
Thought it may be low battery , but to date it has eventually always started and as have driven car on some long journeys battery should be charged, unless I have alternator problem. Going to visit A&M Alfa next week and have them look. Hopefully just a bad connection somewhere. Anyone else experienced this problem?
Also being reminded to change up from 5th gear is a novelty!

There are a few threads on issues regarding the push start if you search on here.

And I never knew the 159 had the reminder to change gear too, I had an Astra as a hire car a few months back and that was the single most irritating feature on the car, especially as 6th had no pull whatsoever so in changing conditions on the motorway it was utterly useless!
