Re: Have you ever bought an Alfa that was a complete dog
Never really had a dog but this one came close, a 1.2 'sud ti. It was only about 4 years old but there was always something odd about it, didn't look or feel right and the colour, Corrallo, well you can see it yourselves. Fair bit of corrosion around too, more than you would expect. Worst thing about it though is that the engine would stop with ridiculous and regular monotony and then you had to sit for ten minutes before it would start again. Tried everything but never did get to the bottom of it, was relieved to PX for a very nice 'sud 1.5 ti which turned out to be the best of the 4 'suds I owned.
A runner up was a 1.8 Guiletta, really didn't like that one but apart from the usual 'leccy problems there wasn't much wrong with it.
