My wifes Saxo VTR is up for replacement, she likes the look of the 147 and the new Honda civic, but the 147 has the edge so is there anything to be weary of, depreciation looks bad, we were thinking of a diesel, better performance and economy.

All comments would be welcome.

Re: Hi,

hiya and welcome to AO

the 147 is a great little car...make sure it has had a full service history from either a dealer or reputable indie...that the cambelt and tensioners have been changed every 36k or 3 years, whichever is sooner and that it has all its keys...they are expensive to get cut and programmed...make sure the oil level is to the top, ideally filled up with a quality 10w 40w semi synthetic...and finally check all the electrics work with no warning lights stuck on...

happy alfa hunting
