hi just picked my Alfa Gt up 4 days ago. what can i say wow what a car I have driven BMW and VW before but wanted somthing special this time, and boy is that what i got. This car just oozes class from the looks to the super leather seats and other fittings.To drive it is a real pleasure I do a 20 mile to and from commute daily and i now look forward to doing it.The ride is so smooth on the motorway Mine is fitted with 16" wheels.The diesel engine is a peach just pulls and pulls, going to fit a tunning box to it as soon as i get time looking forward to that. I read a lot about the car before I bought mine and everone said its a great car. Well It sure is
I have driven 80,000 miles in a little over 2 years in my Alfa. The engine and mechanicals have been very reliable. The electronics and trim hopeless. I have been to the dealer many time and have had little satisfaction. BUT it has been incredibly comfortable and great fun to drive, it demands to be driven aggressively and I have loved every minute. It can fit 3 in the back, but the kids moan when they are in there. Economy is superb with the diesel and the acceleration through the mid-gears is electric. I'd have another despite the problems.
I bought my JTD with 6666 miles on the clock in 2005 - I have had an Alfasud, a Gullietta and an Alfasud GT. This Alfa GT is awesome. To look at her every morning and the exterior beauty is just as fresh as the day I bought her. The interior is classy and comfortable - even with 4 adults! The ride on the road is firm but good and quick progress can be made without any difficulty. She may not be the fastest but I didn't buy her for the speed! The car has been reliable except with a turbo problem that Alfa replaced under warrantee whilst I received great service from them - coutesy car, tea/coffee whilst waiting, phoned updates - thanks Alfa Motorvogue in Northampton. I am an Alfa fan but alway s expected poor reliability with the fun experience - this GT has been a great car and is well-made, comfortable and still turns heads. Go and get one - leave the Audis and BMWs to those with less imagination!
I picked up my used 1.9 JTD a few weeks ago, having never owned an Alfa I was a little cautious about buying one, mainly due to the rumours o reliability etc. I have previously owned a string of BMW 3 series even a Z3. When I finally went down to see a few GT’s it was a simple case of I have to have one, Stunning looks, and on test drive I was surprised how muck poke the 1.9 diesel engine had, the control and feeling from the steering wheel is great you really feel connected to the road. Having read various reports on Alfa gearboxes I have to say I realy like the 6 gears and find they are very good at both low and high speeds.
Thee inside of the GT is something else, the styling looks great and the trim is spot on, every time you get in the car you feel comfortable and I for one can’t wait to take the GT on a long journey. The exterior is just stunning, they are poised and elegant, a real head turner but in a sophisticated way.
I managed to bring the dealer down from £7500 to £6000 and he took £1000 on a VW Bora, which I think is great value for a GT, if you are looking for a coupe then go jump in a GT and take it for a drive.
Order a brochure, find your nearest dealer or book a test drive
I once owned an 04 GT (the version with the stupidly heavy clutch - a built in gym for your left leg). I've driven both editions since and must say…
I bought my TT 2 years ago, second hand (99 model)with 40k on the clock. Since then it has done 40 more. Service costs have been £250 a time. Timing…
