<strong>Sorry, but the first two posts complaining about GTV's on here are stretching things a bit far (except for the brats jumping on ya motor!!). From what I can see we're talking about a few rubber bushes, a couple of other faults and a leak!
Hardly what I would call unreliable! Is this really enough to make you give up on your cars?

I loved my 2.0L GTV, and was the envy of the chaps at work, but after things went so belly-up (£3.5K's worth) on my bella, I couldn't justify keeping her.
I know that she had 97K (hardly high nowadays) on the clock, but I've had plenty of other super high milage cars, and found that alfa has certainly taken the biscuit for repair costs, and yes, I know it's the dealer/specialists fault for keeping the prices high, but until they sort their prices out I won't be buying another, I'll just look at them.....longingly frown
