to buy or not to buy

hi all im a newbie here,

a friend of mine has a 147 and after driving in his im now seriously tempted by a 156 2.0 a car which i have always liked the look of, but as i drive 25 miles to work each day its the rumours of unreliability that are causing me second thoughts.

can you guys give me any help or info on this? even if its things to look for and avoid when/if i buy?

thanks in advance

Re: to buy or not to buy

Of course you should buy Seriously, so long as you regulary check the oil in the Twin Spark cars you'll find that the Alfa is no more unreliable than any other car, and a lot more fun to drive than the normal Euroboxes.

I used to driver 25 miles to work each day in a 10 year old 33 with no problems, the 156 will be more reliable than that.

Check any car out properly, make sure it's been loved not unnloved, look at it's history (make sure it has history) and then love it yourself.
