“Is a used Alfa Romeo Giulietta hatchback reliable?
According to our most recent reliability survey, the answer is a surprising yes. In our 2017 study, the Giulietta finished in 10th place in the family cars category with a score of 83%. Most reported problems related to...
We often hear of how unreliable Alfa Romeos are (from those who heard it in a pub) and more so how unreliable the electrics or electronics are likely to be. Whilst the link below is to a 2015 article, its still very relevant. Take a look, Alfa Romeo is the top European manufacture for electrical...
I've been looking at buying a Mito for quite some time, however I am not sure which version to get for a daily.
My initial preference is to get one with the multi air engine - however it's quite easy to get scared away from these because of forum posts etc.
I would like to stay...
What Car Reliability Survey-
1.Lexus 2. Mitsubishi 3.Toyota 4. Suzuki 5. Alfa Giulietta.
I suppose Toyota and Suzuki might be Euro built, depends on the model. Mercedes were a lowly 23rd. I think we ought to be very grateful- given that a dealer visit can be so stressful!
I have a 156 SW 2.0 JTS (2005)
Since purchasing it in March 2017, other than the usual replacements, such as cambelt and ancillary belt renewed, it hasn't had a sneeze of a problem (fingers crossed):
Lambda sensors: Tick
I am wondering what people think are the best remaps you can get for the 2.4 JTDm 210hp engines?
I have heard a lot of people say AHM maps are fantastic and have read that these really make a huge difference to the drivability of the car.
What I am after from a map is an increase in power. But...
How reliable is a 2003 156 with a 1.8 TS engine? As far as the looks go, it looks pretty good. No dents or visible scratches, the interior looks almost brand new. But Im wondering how often and how soon it will need the belts and pump changed?
How good is this engine in general? It comes from...
I have just bought a GT 2.0 JTS and I would like to take it to a specialist for an overall condition check as well as an oil and filters change. I live in the South London (Croydon). Is there anyone you would recommend? I wouldn't want to take it to a high road garage who just replace...
Hi guys, very tempted to buy a giulietta in the next six months for my daily driver and after some advise. The main reason for the purchase is I have a 54 mile daily Commute, so around 13k miles a year.
I currently use my alfa gtv v6 and as much fun it is the miles are take it's tole on the...
My sister is looking to buy a 2010 ish MiTo, probably the non turbo 1.4 (either the multiair or pre multiair), but I have heard the 120bhp turbo one has the sweet point of no M32 gearbox or multi?
I know alot about the GT/147 generation cars but little about the newer ones.
I was driving on the highway about a week ago and heard something hit my undercarriage. Jumped out the car and the exhaust is sitting to the left. I took it Alfa NMI-DSM and they told me the rubber piece which holds the exhaust in place has been damaged.
I have ordered the replacement...
Bought the mrs a 2011 Giulietta 1.4 170ps yesterday, must say i was very impressed with the car on the way home and the fact we had a very good deal has certainly added to the satisfaction.
Basically its on 26k and it 4 years old in september so after a small amount of research I see...
It is finally getting warmer in austria. The salt is gone from the roads so i decided to give my GTV (never seen salt and never will) a spin.
Charged the battery overnight and turned the ignition. The busso came to live as if it was driven yesterday but it wasn't since octobre!
17 years and...
Some time ago I borrow a housemates VAG COM KKL cable (blue lead ebay jobby) to reset my airbag light. This seemed to work OK though a little flakey at times.
Unfortunately the dreaded light is back so I decided this time to buy my own cheap ebay lead. Bit of poking around and I...
So MOT came around and after losing my last car at the MOT station and alfa's general reputation I was quite worried, but I needn't be!
She passed with flying colours. Passed first time and no advisories!
TBH I don't know who was working the day mine rolled out the factory but it was a good...
I'm almost set on buying a diesel TCT, and as I do quite a high mileage I've searched for issues being reported - not wanting to be regretting it later.
I suppose it's positive that I haven't found anything, can any owners confirm they're all good please?
Well I'm thinking about getting a sports wagon. I'm not sure if I'll go for a cheaper one or something at about 3K .but my question is which engine is best? I've never had a diesel so any advice about what to look out for and differences with petrol engines gratefully received
