I am new to this site but have started to look at all the posts recently and am a bit dismayed by all the negativity surrounding the Brera - I took delivery of my new 2.4 JTD SV last week and so far, I am having a great time with it.
My experience so far - I have driven 400 miles in the 3 days that I have had it, so it may be a bit soon for any meaningful evaluation. First impressions are that it handles fantastically - ignore any crap about it being too heavy (it's not trying to be a Lotus Elise) and the ride is incredibly smooth and overall refinement is great. Steering is very direct, gear box is good and the engine provides plenty of power and decent economy at the same time (31.3mpg average at the mo - although I have been testing out its capabilities!). In all it's fast, comfortable, reasonably economical and good looking and suits my everyday requirements perfectly.
The back seats are adequate for an adult to survive a short journey - in fact 5'4" people and below would be q happy on a long trip.
Features I have specifically noticed: folding wing mirrors when doors are locked, follow me home lights (choice of timings) and easy to find, good driving position with lots of available adjustments.
Only fault so far is that the boot lid spoiler was not adjusted properly and was catching slightly on the roofline when the boot was opened. I took it back to the dealer who has adjusted it and has ordered a new spoiler as the paintwork has been damaged on this one. Excellent service so far!
Anyone else who is thinking of buying a Brera - then I would definitely recommend one!
