147 2.0 Selespeed - should I buy???
I'm currently driving a Fiat Panda (economy reasons) and am trying to trade down to something - a lot - more interesting. And Alfas are very attractive at this point!
I am entirely happy with the amount of cashback i'm going to get, but a little worried about the reliability of the model and potential / likely future costs.
It's an 03 147 2.0TS Selespeed Lusso with 61,500 miles. It looks in good order, except for a broken bonnet latch.
I asked the dealer the key question about the cambelt change. They are checking this on Monday, but I doubt that this has been done (possibly ever).
If I can't get them to do it or work out a deal should I steer clear altogether? Might it be already damaged by the neglect?
I have a holding deposit on it, but should be able to get it back if I find the servicing schedule hasn't been followed (ad says full service history).
