Just bought a 2.5 year-old 159 JTDM 1.9 - Red of course. Really pleased with it!
I had a 2.4 diesel 156 for 6 years/140k miles (had no problems at all), so I'm not exactly new to Alfas.
The new one, despite the smaller engine, is impressively strong and very refined. Only two niggles:
There is a tappety noise from the engine when cold, but since this seems to go away when warm I'm not too perturbed. But I have only a few months before the warranty expires - should I report this noise or is it typical?
Fuel consumption is poor - admittedly I'm not doing the long trips I did in the old car, but even so mid-30's per gallon seems a bit mean.
Any feedback welcome!
Jonny
