Hi all

My first venture into Alfa ownership has been bumpy...

Bought the car a couple of days ago, picked up today after frustrations with the dealer. Got 10 miles away and turned round...back to dealer with Power Steering Failure. Awaiting the work being done...

I have heard a lot from my father about how good this Alfa forum is and how useful you all are. Wondered if anyone out here owned my Mito 1.4 Veloce - before Harratts Volvo Wakefield.

If you could enlighten me as to any previous work done or known faults it will save me (and my wife who is the main driver) a lot of heartache.

She is ultimately quite upset about the start or Alfa ownership so far... I'm still happy...even with no PAS I had fun driving it!

Thanks in advance
