Have had a an Alfa 147 1.6 TS for 8 years now and never had a problem - still enjoy driving it after all this time and can only recommend an Alfa.

Written on: 17/06/2007 by pookyal (1 review written)

I bought an Alfa based on looks and the great drive - I chose to ignore the bad reputation on reliability and post-sales service and am glad I did. It well exceeds the interior quality and reliability of my previous 2002 mini cooper. Further, I have been more than impressed by my local dealer who has fixed a number of minor faults as part of my service on "goodwill". From the AR literature which I have recently received, it seems that this is due to a massive customer service drive. I think… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/01/2007 by stew750 (3 reviews written)

Have had my 147 for 2 years and while I loved it when it drove well, I have fallen out of love with it. why? Almost constant problems. Timing belt failure, reoccurring airbag failure, gearbox fault. nice £1500 bill 2 days before xmas has put me well and truly of alfas. Don't misinterpret me, the 147 is very stylish car and will make you happy behind the wheel, but it will empty your pocket. 35mpg doing well, oil top ups every 3000 miles plus the risk of timing belt snapping at any mileage is a… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/01/2006 by TIMOTHYh (1 review written)

I purchased a low milage 156 Veloce 1.6 with leather seats four door in red 2 years ago - Absolutley no reliability problems what so ever - Just servicing only and new tyres - The Alfa Romeo 1.6 drives superbly and a full factory body kit on a 1.6 is excellent - A good size boot - Always used independant garages because they are cheaper on labour costs - Oil consumption is high though they recommend 1 litre per 1000 miles - My 156 is faultless - Alfa deserve so much better with UK sales… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/11/2005 by maverz (1 review written)

It's a pleasure every morning to walk up to such a stunning car as the Alfa Romeo 147 1.6 Twin Spark. When I open the door it's great to step inside and drive the car. It puts a smile on my face when I am driving it as it's lovely to drive. But at what cost? The quality of parts/reliability is not always up to scratch. Owning such a car does hurt your pockets unnecessarily, as my girlfriend puts it. After just 44K the cam-belt and variator went, and cost me a whopping £500 to fix, add £250 for… Read Full Review
