Re: Hi, another newbie here
Welcome. The "unreliable" reputation is an unwarranted hangover from the past. Just check out the "Post if you've got a reliable ALFA !" thread on the general Alfa discussion board - you will find some great examples of both reliable Alfas and poor unreliability of other makes. Just tell those doubters about the expensive new Jag that caught fire and burnt out completely the second time the owner drove it! And of course, get that Alfa - you won't regret it.
