As above. Does the Petrol or the Diesel rattle, or Both?
Does trim level and wheel size affect the issue?
Shall we try to look into this, perhaps.

No rattles here. (A bit of low speed/cr*p road surface creaking from rear suspension.)

6k 2012 Cloverleaf.

Had a 2.0l diesel hired Giulietta over Xmas in Italy (can't remember the km-age or wheel size, but would have been the standard diameter - 17"?) but that had a persistent buzzing-rattle from the off side (left) air vent/dash area.

170 JTDm Veloce, 18" 5-holes, 23K, 2 years old.

I have rattles inside (passenger speaker, aluminium dash trim, vent on top of dashboard), a severely creaky and seemingly unfixable driver's seat, vibrating door mirrors and creaks from the front suspension. Oh, and squeaky door seals. The volume control on the Bose has been my best friend during the last 12 months :rolleyes:

Suspension is horrid.

Currently waiting for suspension to collapse so I can get rid of the bloody thing!

Horrid is very much the word for mine too, sadly. Going back in next week.

Fancy a wager? I'll bet you 50p mine collapses before yours :p

Lol! Ill have that wager. Mine is going back in on Tuesday. Lost count of how many times. 3 different Alfa dealers can't seem to fix it.

I keep telling them to just replace the entire suspension. Surely that'd be much easier for all concerned.

What are the symptoms? Mine has a hollowly clonk when driving over broken surfaces. They were at a loss then a service bulletin came out about hub carriers. Its in on Thurs to get new ones.....

It's just constant creaking and rumbling. Over bumps, around corners, stopping, steering. Over speed bumps it's a loud creaking that pedestrians can hear clearly.
