Alfa GTV 3L

Would love your feedback

Hey Guys,

My 2000 GTV 3L cambelt ripped six teeth off the other day after being replaced only 17,000kms ago,. Has anyone ever had or heard of this happening before? The repair $$$$ frighten me. Should I look at a second hand engine with low kms has apposed to brand new valves etc as the old ones are no doubt bent and the timing would be scrambled etc?? Any comments?? Cheers Selena.

Hey there,

Where in Australia are you? and what dealer did you have this done at?

If the job was performed correctly this SHOULD NOT have happened. I would be visiting your dealer and get in touch with a mate who has legal knowledge, i do and mentioning some pertinent legislation and the VCAT shall get you far when asking for the repairs either for free or at cost price, as that is unacceptable

Cheers Josh

That totally sucks - I had mine changed 3 weeks ago and would hate that to ever happen. Go claim of the garage.
