Two radiator failures! How common is that?
I'm posting this for a friend who doesn't have internet access.
He has a similar 166 to mine, ie 2001, 3.0 Sportronic. December 2006 his radiator failed and he had it changed by Ramponis. Last month the replacement rad failed and he needed another new one. On both occasions there was no accidental damage, the rads failed and sprung leaks from the matrix.
Ramponi tell him that's very unusual and he should contact Alfa for a refund. He's written to them, but no reply yet.
Has anyone else heard of, or experienced problems with, workmanship in OEM Alfa rads?
