What should I look for in a used Alfa Romeo 159 saloon?
Some 159 owners swear by their cars – others swear at them. Reliability is patchy, with a wide range of issues reported.
The engine's ECU can give up the ghost, particularly on the diesel cars, resulting in a total loss of power and stranded owner. Other electric-gremlins include non-functional cruise control and windscreen wipers.
