In love with my sportwagon
My husband bought me my 156 Sportwagon 1.9JTD 04 Veloce last year after years of pestering him for an Alfa. He was not keen due to all the reports you hear about mechanical and electrical faults. One year on I have seen 'motor control system failure' more times than I've had hot dinners and we have been inundated with hoses splitting, turbo valves going and electrical gliches with both lights and alarm system.
Despite all this I am totally in love with my car. I love the way it drives, the way it looks and the interior is sooooo lush.
My husband wants to sell it and get a Golf GTI. How boring.
I have never got attached to a car before, what is it about the Alfa that makes us want them despite the nuisance that they can be?
