What's funny is that I've stuck around long after multiple Alfa owners have rage-quite "their own" car and forum. I find it amusing.

It's rough when you have a car you actually enjoy and want to own....

... That craps out and is unreliable.

For me it was a Nissan Pulsar NX. Loved that thing the entier 8 months I owned it, after the engine blew up I couldn't bring myself to look at a Nissan for almost a decade.


So it's understandable why people get upset. Alfa's are truly enjoyable cars so it's extra crappy when yours... Isn't. Versus a Mazda or BMW or whatever where... It's more of a "..say 'oh brother', throw it in the gutter and go buy another" moment.

(to paraphrase Easy E)

See... What you describe as wanting... Is EXACTLY what I drive. For me.. might not be for you, but it is for me.

.. guess what...

It's as great as it seems like it would be. No joke... I genuinely hope you find the car that gives you what you want from it.

I don't take it as a joke. And thankyou!

Yes, I bought a 2010 WK1 Jeep with hemi, qd2, offroad skidplates, the works. I loved it after putting good tires (it was on oem rubber still, in 2014!) and Bilsteins on it. It handled well for what it was (actually drifted it around a corner in the rain once. Sweeper. It was super controllable and predictable. Like a well weighted sword more than a Foil, though.). It felt solid. No rattle. Just a comfy, competent vehicle. Yes the hemi sucked gas, no I didnt care as gas was cheap those days and the note was around 400.

After a litany of issues, not the least of which being N23 from Chrysler, and their absolute ineptitude at handling this issue, I moved on from it.

Well, if you can't understand that then it's a lost cause. Not everyone has polemic aptitude like yourself. (some refer to this as 'trolling') They are looking for pertinent information about their own cars, hence the forum.

Sometimes Ill be on a forum for years before buying the vehicle. Sometimes I never do. I was on the Corvette forum for half a decade before buying mine. But I enjoy learning and keeping up with potential interests.

You want noisy brakes. Drive like a nancy. You want quiet brakes, USE them HARD on occasion. Hmmm, wonder why I have NEVER had a pad squeal in my life.........................except a few full race pads!

BTW 3 months waiting for a fender..............side airbags were readily available..........go figure. I will have a bunch of free Pzeros available when finally repaired.
