Just joining the dodgy gearbox club...
I joined the site looking for information on a gearbox problem with my Alfa - reasonably confident that someone would have had the problem before.
My current cars are a Fiat barchetta with 160,000 miles on the clock and an Alfa 156 Sportwagon 1.8TS coming up to 50,000
I've enjoyed driving my Sportwagon - until 4th gear became obstructive a couple of months ago. It cleared itself for a while, but now seems to be a permanent condition. I mentioned it to my main dealer at the last service but they started talking about £1500 to replace the gearbox
I see that other people have had similar problems, but I don't have the time (or inclination) to get underneath to start dismantling the car - especially at such a low mileage. I guess I'll have to start ringing around to find a trustworthy independent in South Bucks to look at it for me. Any suggestions?
