Hello there...

Just joined having recently changed my car...

Sold Volvo S60 (great car but had to go)
Bought GT JTD (yeehah)
Had it two weeks (fantastic)
Developed 'juddery rumble' over 40mph (sob!!)

Please tell me I've done the right thing by selling my reliable Swedish barge and buying a gorgeous but flawed GT....

booke dinto Alfa Dealer for Saturday but any advice / opinions on my new noise very welcome...

No judder or sensation through steering..
handles 'fine' (compared to Volvo!!)
Noise is constant 'rumble' over 40mph in any gear / revs and getting worse as days go by

I'm 'good with a spanner' so had the wheels off and looked at the bushes but mostly seem ok apart from the bottom drop link which seems to have a bush at the front (towards the headlights) but no bush at the rear... can't tell if this is design or if a bush is missing - both sides the same...

Arrrgh - will never hear the end of it from the Wife if I sold my reliable leather clad comfy barge for a ringer...!
