    Yesterday I drove to Prescott for the hill climb ,a two hr mostly motorway run , my 07 1.9 diesel as usual ran beautifully cruising at about 80 . On the way home all was well for the first 5 miles or so until I felt a little hesitation while traveling at about 40 mph it only lasted a couple of...

    I read today in the Times about a pensioner driver who became exhausted and confused after losing his way on a road trip from Cheshire to Sussex last December. After about 12 hours on the road, driving up and down the M40 he gave up and stopped near Banbury, straddling lanes two and three...

    Hi all Looking to retire my loved 147 2.0 t spark for much needed work... Looking at getting 1.4tb giulietta but wondering what owners are getting mpg over long distances,also does a decent treck on the motorway feel like the engines being hammered or is it smooth? Im not one to stick around...

    The M3 near me is now a 'Smart motorway'; so to alleviate the pressure from the original lanes of congested traffic, we now get more lanes of congested traffic pandemonium, dressed up as 'travel procedure success'. Okay, cool skills guys! Given the Smart Motorway has made the hard shoulder a...

    Hello out there, My 159 2.4 JTDM has recently started to misfire and you get the feeling its dragging aswell(lacking power), mainly on the motorway at around 2 -2.5k rev range. If you floor it it will pick up again, but then start again when settled down. Sometimes after a short spell it...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Unfortunately for me a couple of weeks ago, the passenger side front wheel of my 159 ti came off my car on the M5 motorway - thankfully nobody else was involved and nobody got injured. I've been left with the dilemma of fixing my car now - after having it recovered to a garage and having the...
  9. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi everyone, I had a bit of an issue with my car yesterday and thought I'd try enlist the help of the people to see if there's any ideas for what could've happened. I've got a 60 plate giulietta QV that I bought second hand a couple of months ago. Yesterday I was driving down the M1, and the...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, Day one of a three day drive to Antibes followed by 2 weeks in the sun and a 2 day drive back. My 2.4 has been running great, just serviced at Alfa Workshop, no issues, good as gold. 200 miles from Dijon the check engine warning appeared and the car lost power. Wouldn't pull, struggled...

  13. Alfa Giulietta
    Hello, I have recently taken ownership of a Giulietta Sportiva with a 6.5 inch uconnect media display. The Sat Nav function is great for town driving but when I add in a destination and travel via a motorway, the sat nav continually tries to take me off the motorway, even if it is a longer...
  14. Alfa Giulietta
    As the title suggests I have a vibration coming through the car at around 70-75 mph. The vibration hangs around until 90ish mph and then disappears again. The vibration was evident for a few months but as I knew I would soon be getting new tyres I figured this would solve the problem but...

    I was driving home from Gatwick Airport last night at around 11:30PM, it was raining and pretty quiet on the M25 and M3. I couldnt beleive the number of people just sitting in the middle lane, I had cruise control so wasnt changing my speed but i kept catching them up in the inside lane and...
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just had a message from a distant relative who I didn't know owned an Alfa. Their 2005 2.0 Veloce cut out on the motorway a few weeks ago and needed towing home (they're miles away from me so not seen it). Not the timing belt and not low fuel. Local garage say it's "the computer" which will be...
  19. Alfa MiTo
    Does anyone else find driving on the mtorway in a 95 hp Mito just totally exhausting ?!? I really wish they had put a 5 speed box in the 95, I am constantly changing gear as soon as I get to a slight incline in 6th. All this for 44mpg average over 200 miles.

    Was travelling up M65 toward Preston yesterday afternoon and about 200 yards in front of me a deer ran out across my path, hesitated at central barrier then jumped it and ran across other carriageway in front of traffic. Never seen anything like it although I have heard of cars hitting deer...
