This weekend I found a 60 plate Alfa 159 2.0 jtdm Lusso at a main Alfa dealer. The price quoted was £14950 which seems very good. Perhaps too good? Grateful to know what people think. It only has about 6000 miles on it and had one private owner for under a year. I'm beginning to wonder if that owner had problems with it and just wanted rid of it. Is a dealer obliges to tell me if there have been any problems? They assure me it hasn't had any bumps or scrapes. Do you think the price is realistic?

You could always have a look and while there ask to see the log book. Find out the previous owner's details and try and contact them?
Given it's a Lusso and not a Ti the price isn't rediculously low compared to the 59 reg Ti Sportwagon we bought about a month ago (for £13,995), also from an Alfa main dealer.

3 months ago I got a 159 2.0 170 Lusso from a main dealer for £13,995 with just 6k on the clock. I think this is a great price but I wouldn't be too suspicious. Sometime dealers do just shift the stock on quickly to keep the stock fresh and meet monthly quotas.

Do some extra ground work - ask who it was owned by (mine was Alfa UK). Do a search on the DVLA tax database - I found for mine that it was only taxed between March 2010 and Decemeber 2010 so wasn't even used on the road for a year and hadn't even seen a full winter, hence the remarkable as new condition it was in:thumbs:.

Ahhh are you looking at the one in Bournemouth by any chance in Alfa Red? Just spotted it if it is! I wished I could have got the red but had to settle with black in order to get the price right. OK your one is still a 2010 year like mine but its a 60 plate so could be as much as 6 months newer. With that in mind I would say £14,500 for yours would be more comparable to what I had paid but with the benefit of having the gorgeous Alfa Red!
Have a look at it though for its condition and smells inside etc.

Thanks smarty 156 and alfa_147_jtd_16v for your replies. I feel less doubtful now and have actually gone ahead and paid the deposit! And yes it is the one in Bournemouth. I gave it a test drive at the weekend and loved it.
