I love it here already
I signed up a few days ago after getting my first Alfa, a 2006 1.9JTD. I know very little about cars and prior to this week had never really fixed anything on a car myself. I'm pretty darn good at finding information and trying to do things myself, but cars have always felt too far removed from my expertise for me to be confident enough to mess around with them. That's changing at a rapid pace.
Thanks to this forum, I have managed to fix the following issues myself in just a couple of days:
- Cruise control not working
- Sticky panels around door handles
- Loud beeps when locking and unlocking
- Broken latch on armrest compartment
- Low power at low revs and shuddering when idle
The above would have cost me hundreds of dollars to have fixed normally, but I managed to find solutions on here that cost almost nothing.
This seems like a great community and I am glad I found it.
Thank you to all who share their knowledge and experience.
