Should I pull the trigger?

Hi Forum - so I've picked out a lovely Stelvio (green w/Nero), negotiated a good deal, and am feeling excited about moving on from my tired Audi.

Then I started reading these forums pages, including the Complaints section. Now I'm getting cold feet.

What should I do? How many of you regret the decision to get a Stelvio? How many would recommend?

Be aware of the battery problems and buy it. Nothing else drives like an Alfa and this is really your last chance to get a proper air and gas powered Alfa. The next iterations are going to be hybrid best case.

Get it. If you never get a chance again you’ll regret missing the opportunity to have one of the finest driving automobiles ever made. Alfa will take care of you and you’ll love every time you get into a curve at speed.


Don’t Panic! The truth is out there.

My regret is that I didn't get it sooner.

Now at 1.5 months and 1900 miles with no problems.

I read complaints on the forum and had the same concerns, especially since I was buying two Stelvios. Had a minor issue with headliner in one, dealer was great and issue was quickly resolved. Read the forum for any other vehicle you are considering and you will feel the same way about that vehicle. If you like it, buy it.

I went from an Audy Q5 to a Stelvio Ti Sport...never had a single regret...not one.

If you like to actually drive the car, rather than just riding in it, this is the car for you.

No doubt, 1-year in, this is the funnest car I have ever owned.

Came from a newX3. I have not had any issues with my Stelvio but had a few with my X3. No regrets.

No regrets.
Amazing cars.

Alfa Romeo is Latin for "Yes I will, because of your special car."
