Popped my Alfa Viriginity !!
Well, I finally gone and done it, at 34 years old I've bought and driven my 1st Alfa. 2 days ago I bought a 156 Sportswagon 2.4JTD 2002 facelift model. It has 73k on it with full service history (well, going in next week for the 72k/cambelt service).
Still a bit scared of reliability issues having read so many horror stories, however my 1st impressions are that this is a great car to drive. Sadly, I already have a couple of minor niggles :-
a) Very briefly had a "Motor Control System Failure" error appear on the Infocenter, believe this could be the wiring too close to exhaust issue?!
b) My Trip Computer on the infocenter is about 40% out on mileage/mph?! When I am doing 50 the trip computer thinks I am doing 30, and on a 100 mile trip it reported me travellign just 60 miles!!! Any ideas on this?!
Anyway, just wanted to say Hi.
