Alfa 147 - A Definite Yes — Best car i have had, handles like a dream, looks are amazing and is really well built especially on the inside where you can really tell its class. My 2 litre version really guzzles the juice but it is worth it. One downside is definitely the maintenance, parts are still quite expensive considering they are more widely available, example - £300 for a whole new windscreen wiper kit! All in all great car

Still like the design and the handling of the car

The boot can only be opened from inside!Quiet annoying to jump inside the car at every shopping mall

A Truly Reliable Car Over The Past Years — Despite the many negative talk about Alfa Romeo and especially about this model I have been satisfied with mine since the beginning. The performance of the Diesel engine with 115 hp is nothing spectacular but it takes you where you want to go for a reasonable cost schedule

Stylish, But Expensive — good performance - 150 HP, Build quality - poor, appearance- verry good even interior and exterior, weak suspension, you have to repair every 2-3 months, engine is problematic, 1000 km - 1,5 l of oil usage, it's my wife's car, but we need a little bigger

Pros

Like any alfa, heart rules over mind ;-)

Cons

Lease it!!

25

Changing Parts, Keeping Young — Precise steering & brakes, great interior, fun to drive hard - a little unpredictable :-) not suitable for our broken roads (what is??!) and expensive to run. very gadgety and hi tech, most modern cars still lack its electronics. great non-carb engine roar tho a turbocharger would be a nice addition!

The 147 — A most desirable C-segment car but with a sports car character typical of any Cuore Sportivo bred car from Alfa Romeo. I hated diesel...until I got this company car with 1.9JTD engine! The power is there just where you need it at low revs!

Beautiful looks, iterior and nice to drive

Cons

Fix one thing 5 mins later someting else will go wrong.

25

Alfa 147 — Like all Alfa's as soon as you've fixed one thing something else breaks, for a relatively new car its an absolute money pit. Oh and you have to change the timing belt every 3700 miles. and you have to check the oil every 2 weeks because the T Spark engine uses oil like there's no tomorrow. Like I say considering its a relatively new car (not a classic) its a pain in the arse. I wouldn't buy another Alfa but I don't regret owning this one.
