Hi I am new to this site.
I live in country New South Wales Australia.
I am posting this message out of frustration with Alfa Romeo
I purchased two Alfa 159ti in November of 2007
One of these cars has been besieged with gear problems
The car simply will not engage 3 or 4th gear.
I have two horrifying experiences with this issue.
Firstly I was in the Sydney tunnel with a Mack truck bearing down on me
I had my wife and two children in the car; it would not engage 3rd gear,
The truck was practically on my boot honking its horn, little did he know the problem I was experiencing.
This car has been returned to Alfa, 15, yes 15 times.
For the same problem, each time it had to be picked up by a tow truck.
My car dealer is 110 km away.
I have tried many times to talk with management at Alfa, yet no one will talk with me about this issue.
I am now talking with the ACCC and the Department of Fair Trading.
Does any one have the same problem or has any advice.
I will not trade this car and pass on the problem to some other poor Alfa lover as I do have a consonance
Does Alfa Romeo............... I donít think so
