  5. 159 pulling to right on heavy braking

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi all. I took my 159 2.2 Lusso on its first long motorway run yesterday and found that when braking heavily at speed it will pull to the right, and also there is some rumbling through the brakes. There's no pulling when driving, only when braking heavily. At speeds over 30 mph there appears...

  8. My gorgeous, perfect 156 written off by someone pulling out of a junction

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Thoroughly pi***d off after someone pulled out of a side road junction, t-boned my 156 and span me into the front of another car. And they are trying to claim it was my fault because the nose of their car was over the giveway line so I should have assumed they wanted to pull out. The...

  10. Hesitation when pulling away

    Alfa Giulietta
    My new G seems to hesitate when pulling away. If I stop at a junction and then pull away the car starts to move then it's like a pause for a couple of seconds then the car accelerates. It does this in D and N. Is this normal ? I have a couple hundred miles on the clock.

    Hello peeps I noticed yesterday that my G is pulling to the right under medium/heavy acceleration. When in a low gear, say 2/3rd and I give it some of the beans from 20mph it can significantly pull right. I only did this to test the issue. If I am up to speed around 50, it will pull...
