About a month ago while washing the wifes Mito (2009) I noticed the paint was bubbling around the boot badge. I took the car to my local dealership and they took photos of it and sent it of to Alfa. A week or so later I got a call from the dealer telling me that Alfa would be prepared only to give me a goodwill gesture towards the repainting of the boot lid because of other previous problems I had had with the paintwork, ie horrendous stone chipping on the bonnet and rear arches (they only repainted the arches and stated the bonnets hundreds of stone chips were classed as fair wear and tear despite only having around 16000 mile on it). Alfa's reason for only giving a goodwill gesture was that the perforation warranty was exactly that and unless the rust had perforated right through the body work leaving a hole then it wasn't covered!!! So, cost to paint the boot lid was £256 and Alfa contributed £150 leaving me £106 out of pocket on a 4 year old car due to rust, this combined with, suspension top mounts failing, door handle mechanism failing, electric window motor and bits of trim falling of, all in the first 2 years, guess who has bought there last Alfa!!
