Alfa 159 2.2

159 handbrake failure

The handbrake on my 159 failed and the car rolled down the steep drive, across my garden, over the wall and onto the pavement. Alfa Romeo accepted the brake was faulty but only reimbursed me for the 320 excess on my insurance policy and the damage to the garden. Norwich Union picked up the bill for the repairs to my car.
