Bought a 63 plate 1.4 TB Gulietta Collezione as an ex demo with 1500 on the clock just less than a year ago mainly used by my wife replacing a Seat Leon . I very rarely drove the Leon much preferring the weekend driving in my company Mondeo estate.Mondeo now sits on the drive from Friday night till Monday morning and I spend the weekends enjoying the Alfa. Yes plenty mentioned reliability and build problems but what I,ve read it seems to mainly affect the earlier models. It's now done 9500 trouble free miles except for a squeaky clutch pedal soon rectified by a squirt of WD40 or holy water as I like to call it.I hope I,ve not put the kiss of death on it now. Am glad I found this website as its answered many queries and other owners experiences.
