2000 Alfa Romeo 146Review
A Beautiful Car. Fast And Responsive With Great Acceleration & Handling. — I have owned this car since October 2007 and all I can say is WOW. I love this car to bits. I used to own a Vauxhall Astra 1.6 and the difference is incredible, mind you this is a 2 litre. The build quality is excellent although its getting on a bit now. The ride is firm with its sportier suspension and I can't believe the response when accelerating. I love the handling of the car and it grips well when taking corners at higher speeds and I am a lot more confident in wet weather. The greatest thing on this car though is the noise the 2.0 Twin Spark engine produces, even when cruising. Who would want a quiet car?
Pros: Great acceleration & very fast, has a firm ride but is still comfortable, great handling and great looks.
Cons: Fuel economy is terrible but then it is a tourer and meant for long journeys, not the short journeys to work I do every day. Parts are more expensive andmore difficult to get hold of, especially this model which is a facelift ph2. Quite a rare car in the UK.

Alfa Romeo 146 - Angelic, Or Devilish??
20ltr Twinspark Engine gives great perfomance, however, in the wet, the soft Italian Chassis makes it squirm from the direction you point it! Being an Alfa Romeo, they are not cheap to run, starting w... Read More
