me & my 147 :is it the end?
Hi to all AlfaOwners!
Ive had an 2005 147 1.6 Lusso since April 2008.
Let me say I absolutely love the car, but it's been nothing but trouble.
I'v put up with th eheavy insurance, road tax etc all because it's just a great car.
However I've had repeated trips to the garage with suspension issues, squeeky bearings - spent over 1500 pounds on suspension is over two years.
On Saturday, without warning, the engine simply stopped in mid journey within 10 secs from a brief stutter. The only sign of trouble was that the coolant had all disappeared.
The engine just wouldn't move - nothing other than all the warning lights now showing.
Recovery Guy reckons (with remarkable vision) I will need a new engine.
Anyone think I should give up on the 147?
