long term 156 owner
Have owned 156 for 8 years. Good car in that time and still is. Except and there's always exceptions! cam belt failure - v. expensive.
Other than that in the past few weeks failed emissions test big time. Replacement lambda valve? fitted passed emissions with flying colours and runs like a dream. Have also had front nearside top and bottom suspension arms replaced. I read that somebody had a fuel guage light problem so have I. It looks like a relatively big job to sort out for such a small problem so I just put up with it.
