Madness My new Alfa 159

Hi all have just purchased a 159-JTS. The car was in Melbourne so I had a local mechanic give it the once over. I picked this version so the wife could drive it in "auto mode" The mechanic gave it a clean bill of health so I caught a cheap flight to Melbourne to inspect it and happy to say it was in great condition for the age and the drive back to Sydney was a great experience. Have had the car a week and the gremlins have appeared. Needless to say I feel like this decision to buy an Alfa may not have been the best

My biggest worry is this "Selespeed" in stop start traffic. After 15 minutes it judders when starting off in first especially worse when my wife was in it and we had to start off in traffic going up a hill. A scary experience and the wife wants nothing to do with it!!!!!!

Problem 2 the rear windows "yes both of them" do not work even the master switch does nothing. Front ones do work.

The car is under the consumer warranty so I'm hoping I can get it fixed!! Is this the start of a bad love affair with Alfas.
