Hello from a new alfa owner, and a Q

Hello

I picked up my Alfa 156 on Sunday (2001 y reg, 2.0l Veloce) am already loving it.

My question is relating to the climate control. I'm not sure if mine isn't working or if it's generally not that good! The blowers for the back seem to be working OK. However the front vents seem fairly useless.

I'm intending to get it checked out- hopefully it either needs re-gassing or there is a loose hose somewhere. However I just wondered if it is a common problem.

Thanks in anticipation for your help.

Re: Hello from a new alfa owner, and a Q

Nope your right in thinking that Alfa's climate control isn't as powerful as other cars, although it can be quite difficult to master. I tend to make sure that air circulation is turned on that way the aircon system has to do less work to cool the air because it's not cooling warm air from outside the car.

Hope this helps.
