Good When They Are Young But Not When They Are Older — Great engine, very practical and pretty reliible. However do not touch older examples of these they were prone to rust on the floorpan. Mine had to be welded in three places before I finally chucked it. Saw one on ebay that was for sale for parts, the same thing had happened to it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great engine

Cons: rust on chassis

If You Don't Drive Fast, Don't Buy It... — My 145 had 1.4 written in the back, but I think those guys from Alfa Romeo exchange my engine to a 1.7QV or something... It was so fast that sometimes it was scary enough to press a little the brake pedal, like "wow... hold your horses, kid"!... For me, the worse thing of the car is that you can't drive the car slowly with some pleasure :( The consumption is around 8-9 liter each 100km and the mechanical parts are not very expensive. The handling is wonderful, with precise steering. However, the brakes use the ABS too much often... It's beautiful outside and inside! Alfa's designers toke care of all minor details to produce a car that makes your eyes smile :) The overall built quality is very good too, although some finishing details could be better. Ergonomically, it has at least 2 things I point: the radio is all down in the bottom and the seats are made only to people with long legs :(

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Rocket acceleration; Handling; Styling in and out; Used price

Cons: Ergonomics; Brakes; Slow speed driving; Fame of unreliable

If You Can Afford It, Then Don't Hesitate — * Performance - mine had an 1.4 engine but still could do 130/140 on the highway. This car has the best brakes in its class, really! * Build Quality - if Alfa could get build quality to the level of the German manufacturers, I bet VW would have been broke until now * Appearance - Exterior - lovely, Interior - not that much * Cost of Ownership - a lot * Fun Factor - YES!! And there is no other word to describe the car

Pros: Get the Junior version - sports suspension and brakes with reasonable engine

Cons: Price
