it's a 2008 model for £5995! Im weighing up against a bmw 320 which has 60,000 miles but is £3k more I have heard the same old stories of how Alfa's are unreliable and have various problems but I must say it's a beautiful car and I cant help being drawn to it! any input from maybe someone who owns one with similar milage or knows the score on these cars would be appreciated.

Yea I have driven it, it does seem alot slower than my current car but thats a minor thing for me. Im just concerened that an Alfa with that many miles on is going to be a money pit, I mean it looks great, ****es all over a german equivelant for looks in my opinion but I have never had an alfa...but I have heard the 'stories' of faulty electris etc. anything I should look out for in this model?

I bought my 1.9 57 plate with 84 on the clock.

Had the cambelt and a few other things sorted once purchased, and been great ever since.

Few issues, that come up on this forum all the time, but reliable car.

Go for it

I've had my 159 nearly a year and touch wood...I have had no problem with it. In fact it has been one of the most reliable cars I have ever owned. Alfas have moved on and horror stories you hear are generally not with the more modern platforms used in the 159/Brera etc.

Buy with confidence!
