Mito 1.3jtdm-2

Newbie Belated Intro

Hi Everyone,

Firstly an apology for the late intro due to a number of personal and family health issues recently.

I adopted the user name of LucaBella as it sounds a bit Italian but is a combination of my two grandchildren's names.

In the past I have owned a variety of cars including an Austin A35, Clan Crusader, MGBs, Triumph Stag, Rover SD1s, various BMWs and a couple of Freelander 2s. I had never owned an Alfa and, as they say that you cannot call yourself a petrolhead until you have owned one, I bought a Mito 1.3 jtdm2 when I retired from work last year and was looking for a small, economical car to replace my Freelander.

I took a bit of a flyer and bought a Cat D vehicle and have had some issues to sort out, none too serious except for one nothing to do with any damage repair in the past, which is baffling me at present so I will be posting a query on the technical forum soon to see if anyone can help.

Apart from the niggles I absolutely love the car (a total contrast from the Freelander!). My wife has a new Mini diesel which is very modern with lots of shiny bits and coloured lights to amuse you but contrary to what the motoring experts will tell you I prefer the Mito to drive and it has more internal space.

Best Wishes
