Just joined the alfaowners club to ask for advice!
Have been an Alfa fan for a long time, previously had a 146ti, then a brought a golf (mistake!). Recently brought a new Giulietta 2.0 Jtm-2 140bhp and had only covered just under 2000 miles, before the car was taken back to the dealer by the AA
Thanks for the scratches on the car AA!!!
A water pump failure and idler wheel breakage caused the cam belt to slip and hence damage to engine. Dealer had car for a week and stripped engine down and replaced all tappets or valves, water pump and idler wheel.
Had car back and drove down to france, but soon realised engine not right. Car seems to struggle in 5th & 6th gear in low revs with poor MPG. Car has gone back to dealer and engine is in bits again, dealer confirms that system keeps acknowledging there is a fault but they can't as yet find it. They have been communicating with Alfa Italy technical division to try and resolve it. It has now been another week without our car and i'm becoming rather annoyed and frustrated that we have had to go through this after buying a new car. It feels like we have a second hand car now
Has anyone else had the same issue?
Could someone please let me have an email or tel no: for Alfa Customer Service
