“Geared Up for Trouble”

published 18/04/2008

Interesting and Different Surprise Package

Just Not Sure About that 'Box

Every now and then someone dares to "think outside the box". Someone dares to come up with something that will be immeasurably better than what went before, by simply combining 2 seemingly incompatible technologies. We see it all the time; who would have thought a mobile phone and a camera would...

“Alfa 156 - The truth.....”

published 10/11/2005

Pedigree. Stylish.

Insurance costs. Depreciation.

Two years ago I decided to take the plunge and buy something different, and the Alfa had to be the choice. I purchased a 9 month old, low mileage "Lusso" 2.0ltr saloon version. Having still got the vehicle, how`s it stacked up? Read on for a few home truths after 30,000 trouble-free miles...

~ ~ Alfa Romeo have come a long way in the past few years. I can remember a time not that very long ago that they had such a bad reputation, especially in regard to body rot, that the standing joke was that if you left one out overnight in the rain, the next morning you’d have to sweep up...

Buying an Alfa 156 is one of the best decisions I've made in a long time! Fair enough, I'm only about a month into it, but so far everything I've been told about the superb Alfa driving experience is true. I bought my 156 from a car supermarket, and still feel like I've got a hell of a deal when...

“Powerful”

Nice and quite

Not good design

Good Points: Magnificent design, very good handling, good acceleration, good engineering, very good air conditioning, low noise when driving, good sound equipment, extremely good road holding even without EBD help e.t.c. (Mine its an older model without all these helpings which the newer Alfa 156...

“Fast, but not that big”

published 12/03/2001

Great luxury, looks and performance

Little room for a supposed estate

I recently trialed the new Alfa Romeo Estate (?) as an alternative to my current company car since I am looking for somothing slightly larger to accomodate all the kit required when my wife and I take our daughter on holiday with us. Torn between a 4x4 and the dull estates on the market I though...

Style, pace and yes, reliability

paint, service costs, depreciation

Bought it from Car Giant in London, in summer '03 on a '51 plate . Black, fairly basic spec and had done 11k. Now its done 40k. Styling - opinion seems divided, some think its gorgeous, others think its merely very nice. Seriously, it still looks fresh in the car park in terms of design & lines...

can be expensive to run....thats it really!!!

The Alfa Romeo 156.…Where to start? The first thing you notice is it's elegant curves and aesthetics which makes the 156 an attractive semi sports car. There is something however that many (including myself) notice though about the rear doors, there is no handle or at least no visible handle...

lack of storage space

I bought my 156 2.0 JTS Veloce as a one year old pre registered car with 10,000 miles and at the time did consider the Diesel JTD 150 version but in all honesty the heart and soul of an Alfa is not a diesel unit and never will be. The 2.0 JTS is a work of art, pumping out 178 Bhp and willing to...

“Thinking about an Alfa?”

published 03/07/2007

Beautiful looks, fun to drive, gets you noticed!

service/repair costs

I bought my Alfa 3 years ago and one thing has never changed - I love the design and feel of the 156! That's what this car is all about. Everyone knows that Alfa's reputation for reliability is not exactly up there with the Japanese cars! However, if anyone tells you that they don't like the look...

“Italy's finest”

published 25/01/2005

Great looks, good value

Depreciation

I did work for Alfa Romeo for a while selling these, and I loved it! The 156 has been with us for some time now, but still looks good now. It had teething problems to begin which were soon rectified. The level of comfort is great, and you really feel you are driving something special, there is...

I imported my 156 2.0TS Sport Pack 1, from Holland after an exhaustive search for the best deal. I loved,its gourgeous external lines and it's sporty interior, and still do. The performance was all I expected from the 2.0TS, no Subaru Impreza, but it went as well as you can expect from 155BHP...

“A beautiful Car”

published 20/10/2004

Good value, good performance, great styling

No cup holders!

I owned my Alfa 156 2.0 T-spark for a year in 2000. It was a fantastic year of motoring. I bought the car brand new from a dealership in Germany. I was able to get a huge discount, so the car was a real bargain. The car had the 155BHP engine which was never really lacking in power until past...

Styling, handling, roadholding

Poor performance, poor dealer and company support,...

This should be a stunning sports sedan if it were not let down in critical areas. Styling is superb. One of the first "retro" styles and still the best (personal taste). Handling and roadholding are excellent. Rebound in the front shocks under hard cornering can be fixed. Body roll is typical and...

An exciting, powerful, sexy car

choice of iridescent paint, yuck

This car can look like a nice car. Give it a makeover from the extensive product catalogue and it's a car that definately gets a second glance when it goes past. If you're budgetting around this price mark and are wondering whether to go for the 2.4 litre model or the 2 litre with the trims go...
