159 driving pleasure
I have been driving a 159 Wagon 2.4 JTDm for 18 months and have realised that a lot of driving experts out there really don't understand how under rated these cars are.
I do city and country driving combined and consistently get 6.8 to 7.5 litres per 100 kl.
City driving is not so good 10 to 12 litres per 100 kl.
The performance of the 159 diesel is to say the least mind boggling on bending highway runs in Australia. To drive and know that where you point the 159 it will go no gap to small and come out the other side like a bat of hell, and really for 147 Kw small but the 400 Nm huge most V8's should be ashamed.
I used to drive a 1976 1.8 Litre Alfetta back in 1977, it blew my mind then.
My wife is now driving a 1.4 Litre Turbo Guilletta and loves it, she lets me drive it some times.
Totally amazing in a different way to the 159.
