I've had my 100,000 miles 145 for almost 2 years and just had to put new rear pads, an exhaust, new radiatore and a cam-belt/tensioner/aux belt. Not sure if that counts as unreliable.. the rad' was the originale and the rest was kind of servicing/road-worthiness related.

With the 4C being cancelled, and the 8C and GTV being dropped from the product road map, the car media all over the internet are proclaiming Alfa is on its dying legs and are on their way to be being flushed down the toilet of history just like Lancia. Who knows at best they may end up like...
Just a thought, why don't we make a sticky thread for people to make personal recommendations for Independant Alfa Dealers/Services? Can one of the mod's make this sticky?
This would, I am sure, be useful for new members and save a lot of searching through old threads. Just keep it simple...
