Thumbs Up AutoExpress Driver Power Survey 2008

Come on guys & gals, tell this influential survey what you think of the Alfa owning experience.

I had the opportunity to be positive

It does matter this and can shut the Alfa knockers up

Cheers,

Re: AutoExpress Driver Power Survey 2008

My 156, Clare's GT & my 159 are (were) all excellent. OK, marker the GT down on build (creaks & rattles) and ride (which is pretty harsh).

Even dealers are getting better

Re: AutoExpress Driver Power Survey 2008

dont make the dealers seem better than they are, the message must remain "you are crap sort it out" if we want to see changes. the first hint that people are satisifed and the dealer network will be off the hook.

Crazed Re: AutoExpress Driver Power Survey 2008

Gave the GT a good review, dealer I use (Northgate Canterbury) has been good too. I did leave a comment on how crap the other 2 Kent dealers are though!

Many of those questions were the usual Auto Express 'pinko, nowhere to hang your handbag, we must be protected from ourselves' nonsense.

The Enviromentalist questions got me thinking though........as I'm both a great believer in the whole life cost idea and that cars need to be smaller and lighter to be economical...........the greenest manufacturer must be Land Rover!

So many of the old ones, back to 1948, are still on the road today. My 1961 Series II swb takes up less space on the road than my girlfriends Yaris, its been maintained using mainly recycled parts, it weighs less than a Ford Focus. I am an Eco Warrior!
Ok the new Land Rover stuff is oversize and overweight (Alfa 159 & Brera are going the same way) but probably less of an environmental disaster than all those beyond economic repair Toyota Priuses about in a couple of years............

Thank you Tricky, you were no help at all.........
