Looking forward to being a part of the forum

Hi all
Glad to be on board.
Heres a question for you all straight away. I am fortunate in having a 159 2.4JTDM my choice for company car. I always wanted to have an Alfa and what a great car.........but after six months my new beauty is a bit sick. I have been suffering with turbo failure on a frequent basis, which at times has caused a few twitches in the nether region, especially when in lane 3 on a motorway!! It suddenly drives like a diesel of 20 years ago. The swirl box was changed it's been reprogrammed all to no avail, in the end it's had to stay with the garage cos' I ain't risking it anymore. Now I've been told it needs another swirl box and a new manifold (which is already on back order at the factory) Now I know it's new but are there any other 159 drivers having similar problems and has it been cured. Some positive response as I have a hire car through the Alfa warranty deal......a 1.4 Focus I had to check it did have an engine as my pushbike accelarates quicker!!

welcome to AO mate

not many members look in this section so if you post your question in the 159 section it will get a faster wider response
