Just read the Which Car Survey for 2013.......

30th out of 31 for Brand Score (38%), only the smart Car was worse. Interestingly they slate the Giulietta repair bills for cars older than 3 years (even using the word Ouch) but then omit it from the 3+ year old reliability table due to the Car only being on the market for 3 years.

4th from bottom for for Reliability (Petrol) and 2nd from bottom (D). The only car that is worse is the Astra

They seem to dress up tests as their own when they are clearly euro n-cap or the electrical equipment has European pin plugs.

It did annoy me when i read it, but then my friend pointed out that the type of people who buy cars recommended by Which ,are the type of people who buy three pairs of polyester trousers for £19.99 out of the back of the Mail on Sunday.

In the real world? If your G is 3+ years old, chances are you will avoid the dealer and start using and alfa specialist to drive the repair cost down.

Though my local alfa specialist quoted me £240 in labour to stick on a set of eibach springs but the alfa dealer up the road quoted £180 with the vat

A chap in work brought this in and I spotted the lies error with regard to 3+ year old cars.

The Toyota Auris hybrid topped one of the charts too; how long has that been on sale, how many have Toyota sold and how many of those responded to the Which survey?

On my brief glance through I couldn't see any figures relating to the numbers of respondents to the survey or to specific vehicles. Those results are bound to be so skewed they're not worth the paper they're written on.
