Hello everyone!

My name's Jordan and i'm in the process of looking for an Alfa. I live in Sutton in Surrey and currently drive and Audi A3 2.0TDI.

Believe or not, my A3 has been awfully unreliable to me over the past 6 months, to a point where i need to get rid and move onto something.

Now obviously Alfa's don't have the best reputation for being reliable, but hopefully i can find a nice example of what i want from a dealer so i can include some sort of warranty with the purchase, to save any unexpected costs.

I'm either looking at a 147 or a GT, must be diesel for the amount of miles i do, so i'm thinking the 1.9JTD engine will do nicely.

Just wondering what the most common problems on these 2 cars are? What are the best points? What would you suggest i look out for when possibly buying one or the other?

All help would be appreciated

Welcome to AO Jordan

The guys over at the 147/GT forum will be able to help you with advice:

Personally, if I were in your shoes I'd plump for the GT, but you really can't go too wrong with a 147 either
