New to Alfa

Hi all

I have a Brera 2.4jtd and I just love the looks but running has not been as good I expected. After 2 SAABs my last being a 95 Aero, I didn't really know what to expect.

But yesterday I have a complete and utter failure of the transmission - on entry to a major roundabout at rush hour in Bournmouth. I was always half expecting something to happen - but this was spectacular and very scary. It felt like the linkage but I am waiting to find out. Still it shouoldn't happen after 13k and 10 months old.

I too have had the other usual probs: alarm, rear parking sensors failed, headlamp washer jets falling apart.

It does feel thouh that the Brera does have a lot of faults, has anyone else had a transmission failure?
