What used Alfa Romeo 156 saloon will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Alfa Romeo 156 saloon?

The Alfa Romeo 156 is very cheap to buy secondhand because the trade and buyers are worried that it might fall apart whenever you sneeze. It won't – the 156 is far sturdier than its reputation suggests – but prices need to be low to tempt people to 'take a chance'.

Once you've taken the plunge, any loss in value shouldn't be a big concern, unless you've paid over the odds. The first owner will have born the brunt of the car's depreciation from new.
