Mid life Crisis Car (again)
Hi there all,
I have recently purchased a very nice low mileage 2009 Alfa 159 JTDM limited edition 1.9 Diesel in Black. For the last 7 years I have been driving a Landrover Freelander (for family duties) and wanted something a bit more sporty yet with good economy.
I was looking at something like a Honda Accord 2.2 i Dtec but my wife saw a add for an Alfa 159. Took one for a test drive and despite it having about 179K miles on the clock it was a really nice drive. So I looked around for a lower mileage one and eventually found the one which fitted the bill.
I am absolutely blown away by the styling and the handling. The one I got was the limited edition with the lowered sports suspension. It's official, this is my (latest) mid-life crisis car!!
Before the Freelander I had a Ford Cougar V6 and before that a Honda 2.2 Vtec and they were fun to drive and it is great to get back behind a car with a huge response when I push down on the accelerator.
I have had various warnings about buying "a Fiat with expensive parts" but I don't care!!
If anyone has any tips for me I am completely open to any help or suggestions.
