Cry Like A Baby Are AO'ers Natural Moaners?

There is a constant stream of moaning on this forum about the new cars, about how badly selling, unreliable, badly built or just "non-Alfa" they are, despite loads of evidence to the contrary. Are we just whingers, constantly harking back to the good old days of rust, electrical gremlins, failed suspension bushes, timing belt failures and a shoddy dealership network, or is there a genuine reason for complaint?

Depends on the time of day really. In the mornings my gout, arthritis,sinuses, heart valve, entropion, are at their worst! Not too bad a bit later.

By the looks of it, most of us on AO want to see the latest Alfas with 500hp, weighing 250kgs, doing 0-60mph in 2'' and costing a fiver.


No surprise we moan ...

I went with other.

I myself am a fan of pretty much all Alfa's and give the benefit of the doubt to ALL modern Alfa's and do in actual fact really like them.

But yeah, quite a few people on here do moan a fair old whack,

In my book, as long as it's an Alfa, I'm happy,

It's the British climate makes us so. Can't beat a good moan and groan, gets things a changing, if only slowly.:

It's lovely today - sun shining, warm (I'm in a T-shirt here!) - perfect

I don't feel the need to moan about anything today.

ZF's got a point

Re: Are AO'ers Natural Moaners?

I visit eight houses a day minimum in my job (Council & Housing Assoc, which includes a lot of older people)

It is a fact that to some of them the only way they know to open a conversation is to say "ooh, In't the weather awful today"....and it matters not what the weather is really doing. There is a song about the weather, and it could equally apply to Alfa ownership..its called

"We always want whatever its not"

I hope I applaud when I think Alfa do something good, but i'm not going to hold back if I think they have dropped a goolly, or if they fail to respond to a goolly of their own making.

I've said repeatedly that I think Alfa are getting far more right than wrong, cars, service, reliability, finish...and I think it will come right, but it does take a long time in such a competitive market place where the opposition is pretty hot, and there is presious little time to pick up a dropped baton if you make a mess.

My only current crit is that i wish that Alfa had led with the 159 Ti two years ago..its clearly a seller and what people want to see in an Alfa, but only because I want them to be successful. (Oops...I'm moaning again..sorry)
