  1. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi folks, We are currently searching for a new car, something that will be big enough for a baby on the way. I am landing on the Giulietta, but there are a couple reservations with the size. How have any of you folks gotten on with rear facing car seats and the boot size for prams/pushchairs...
  2. Alfa 164 & 166
    That is the question! Hi, first post, so please be gentle. :) There's a 2002 166 with the 3-liter V6 with 75,000 km (47k miles) in immaculate condition both inside and out for sale right down the street where I live. The asking price of UDS11,900 is quite reasonable as well, and I'm sure I can...
  3. Alfa Giulia
    Hi guys, would you please share your opinion regarding the petrol engines of the Giulia? I mean the 2.0 (200hp & 280hp)? Is it a reliable engine? I know there had been some early issues fixed by Alfa and cars made after april 2017 should be better. I currently drive Giulietta 2.0 Diesel which...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've done a bit of a search and haven't seen anyone else with this problem:- The console gauges (oil/water temp and fuel in my Brera) all stopped working, more or less permanently. No backlight and none of the indicator lamps in them came on at all, startup or otherwise. Occasionally they come...

  6. General Motoring Discussion
    Like many of you, I've always been pretty diligent about looking after my cars, mainly to ensure they don't conk out or to ensure they're safe. I'd hazard a guess that car fans - whether you're a slight fan or a complete car nut - probably spend more on keeping their cars in good condition than...

    Ran into this : https://www.whatcar.com/news/reliability-survey-2018-3/ Not bad ..... ;)

  9. Alfa Giulia
    Calling all Giulia / Giulia Veloce owners. I am about to dole out a hefty amount just shy of 48K on a brand new fully-loaded Giulia Veloce - only thing holding me back at the moment is all the horror stories posted on the net from owners, test drives and (biased?) journalists: 1) Several...
  10. General Alfa Discussion
    I’ve just been reading the What Car reliability survey, the top 4 brands were Japanese but coming in at 5 was Alfa Romeo! What gets me is that every review I’ve read, and I do mean every review, always end with a sly dig at alfa’s supposed unreliability. Where did the German brands come in...
  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys! I'm on the verge of buying an Alfa Romeo 156. My budget is about 2,000 pounds, though I'm not from the UK so the prices may be different. Enough to say, it's almost 2x as much as the most expensive non-V6, non-facelifted I could find, so should be enough for a well cared for car...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all I previously ran a 1.9JTDM GT, I actually bought on ebay with 140k + on it at a very good price. In the couple of years I owned it I found it a great car to drive (pretty sure it had a 170 re-map), it looked gorgeous and was very economical. However I changed front suspension arms far...
  13. General Alfa Discussion
    Not sure if any of you have seen the latest What car reliability survey, must be the highest rating ever for Alfa Romeo, coming above all the German marks in what must be a first. Sure some will argue that it is owner reported and us Alfa owners are a forgiving bunch...
  14. Alfa Giulietta
    Saw the latest reliability survey, would say that's the highest I've ever seen a Giulietta! https://www.whatcar.com/news/reliability-survey/ Reliability for family cars aged 0-3yrs Rank Make and model Score 1 Lexus CT 200h (2011-present) 100.0% 2 Honda Civic hatchback/Tourer (2012-2017) 94.5%...

  16. Alfa MiTo
    Hi everyone, I've been keenly watching autotrader and local dealerships for a Mito for about a year now, and my finance is finally up on my Chevrolet so now is the perfect time for me to buy. I'm looking for advice on which model to buy, and I'm also looking to allay my (mostly my family's...
  17. Alfa Giulia
    I hope I'm not jinxing my car but in work a number of people have recently bought new cars, an XE and XTrail. The XE is in to have it's ECU replaced with only 12,000km on the clock and the stop start on the XTrail has caused so many problems the owner has had it permanently turned off.
  18. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Looking at a 2004 156, 2.0 JTS. 165000 on thr clock. Looks mint on the outside. And it goes for 2750?. Really tempted to sell my JTD, add some cash and get it. Friend had a TS that has been pretty reliable, so Im guessing theyre not bad if taken care of properly. I dont really drive a lot...
  19. General Alfa Discussion
    Hello all. I'm new here and have never owned an Alfa before. I am very interested in getting a 1.6 diesel version of the Mito I have seen advertised locally. It's a 2009 with 50k on it. The car looks amazing and the spec looks really impressive. My only reservation is due to the reputation...
  20. South Africa
    :furious::irked:So I have been alfa-less for just under a year now. I had a few 156's and they were all 2lt T.S. models. I also had the privilege of driving my father's 2.4 JTD 10v for a little bit. Living in Triomf and travelling to Pretoria for work everyday is pretty strenuous on a car's...
