Alfa Romeo extends warranty deal

Alfa Romeo is extending the warranty on its Giulietta and Mito ranges from three to five years.

The extended-warranty deal will be made up of 36 months' unlimited mileage cover, followed by a further 24 months' of mechanical warranty on all private sales of its Mito and Giulietta ranges.

This deal will be a boost to potential Alfa customers, with the manufacturer coming a lowly 34th in our 2011 reliability survey. However, the Giulietta and Mito did not feature in this survey.

Damien Dally, head of brand, Alfa Romeo UK said: 'The Alfa Romeo brand has always had a strong emotional pull but we also have complete confidence in its rational credentials and believe our new extended five-year warranty provides the retail car buyer with complete peace of mind.'

Buyers can take advantage of the extended-warranty deal until September 30.
