I own an Alfa 147 TS and absolutely love it! That's not to say that I haven't had my share of problems like all other Alfa owners!
The looks of this car certainly put it in a league of it's own, it's quite simply stunning! You can't beat Italian design! The great styling also exists i the interior, attention to detail is so obvious everywhere you look!
The main problems I have had were with the ABS and VDC failure lights coming on. The car has been in and out of the garage more times than I have had hot dinners to try and fix it but they cannot find a fault! Other minor problems include the rear windscreen washer not working and the windscreen leaking slightly. She has just developed a knocking sound which I think is from the suspension, I will be taking her to the garage again this weekend!
Fuel economy not bad for a 2.0L averaging at 30mpg
Comfortable seats and driving position
Attention to detail in the interior
Superb sound system
Lot of car for the money
Quite expensive to insure (Group 14)
No matter how many times this little car lets me down all I have to do is look at her and I forget all my worries! Don't let the reliability put you off owning one of these little beauties, it really is a corker of a car!
Everyone needs to own an Alfa at some point in their life to appreciate the love hat realationship with them!
Summary: You have to own one to appreciate them!
