Considering a 147

Hi Everybody - newbie here and currently a Focus owner.

I have been a long-time admirer of A lpha Romeo and a few years ago rented a diesel 147 in Italy (interesting driving there....!)

It was really lovely to drive, and I have hankered after one since then (would go for the Giulietta but finances prohibit )

I need some owners views on this car (must be diesel) - typical family use - irregular commutes, but used around city frequently, weeknds visiing distant friends and family, and occasional summer camping trips (need a detachable towbar for a small trailer).

My questions are:
What's the reliability like on post-2006 models?
Typical servicing/spares costs?
Fuel consumption?
What faults I should look out for when buying?

I wouldn't mind betting all this is contained somewhere in this forum, but I couldn't find it, so a link will be fine if you have one.

Many thanks
