Had my 159Ti 1.9 just over two years. No problems. Only time it went in was for a split CV joint that a tyre fitter spotted looked like a tear from road debris. Minor irritation was that I booked it in and they didn't have the part so it was off the road a second day coz I had to bring it back a week later. Check my sig for some summary info. It has been a blast, looks stunning and I'd recommend one to anyone.
Be aware that 2.4 economy is not fantastic and the 1.9 is OK rather than outstanding (but then most Alfisti tend to enjoy driving too much to get the highest economy returns!). Ti's are best looking, best spec'ed but beware tyre wear and they aren't cheap at 19". Have the proper 4 wheel alignment done (£60-100 well spent). No other worries to report.
Nostalgia isn't what it used to be.
2008-15 New 159Ti experience: overwhelmingly positive. Reliable and fun over nearly 100k.
