Have been taking my wife round various dealers looking for a replacement to her 147 1.9JTDm. With the low down torque of a 150bhp this was always going to be difficult. After looking at the Astra, Leon and Focus I took her to the Alfa Dealer and we test drove the Giulietta. She was completely smitten and when I took the car for a spin I was blown away by the 1.4 Multi-Air. That is some fun car to drive! My only problem is that the clutch pedal is so close to the centre console that I can't get my foot down the side. This means I have to pull the foot back and put it underneath the pedal. The alternative is to rest it on the pedal (not a good idea). This seems a serious design flaw. I can't see any other comments on the issue in this lounge. Is it me or do others have the same gripe? I only have size 8 feet by the way so it is not the feet that are the problem.
