Hi ......... and welcome to AO ............. I've owned my GTV for a couple of years now and it's a real keeper. If your on the lookout make sure you do a bit of research first. The must haves with the GTV are service history. Cambelts on the 2.0ltr are 36000 miles or 3 years ............ I think the 3.0 is 50000....... The rear suspension knocks and clangs, so try to get one that's got polybushes all round or be prepared to do it........ a set will cost you £200 .......... The standard radio/cd is rubbish............. and the 2.0 can drink a little oil (most of them do it, to a greater or lesser degree)........... so unlike the Saab, you'll need to check it regularly ............... But they are a fantastic drive, heaps of fun and built with just a touch of passion !!!!!!

................. Ask the questions and someone on here will know the answers.

Cheers to All

Peter, thanks alot for the info. She has set her heart on an Alfa, and I'm realy pleased she's going down that road, aslong as I get to drive it, but not holding my breath lol. We've been looking for a while now and finaly got some money together.

Nigelread, she's a real petrol head, no idea were she gets it from lol
