Tale of woe
I cant believe how long its been since I last posted here!!!!!!
I felt I needed to share my tale of woe with other alfa owners.
I have had a wonderful 9 months in my alfa gt diesel, until monday morning that is, driving at 120km on the m7 when the mscf light comes on, cruise control turns off, accelerator non responsive and power steering goes. Managed to coast safely to HS, rang AA and got towed to alfa dealer and left it with them for diagnostics.
Move on to Tuesday morning and phone call confirms the worst with a timing belt failure, now got a week of no gt, driving a panda loaner and a big bill close to €2000.
worst thing is tb was changed at 35k miles and I had her booked for 100k mile service and tb change in 3 weeks time.
Grown man crying for last 2 days!!!!!!
