Alfa Romeo Owner Car Reviews

2012 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 2.0 JTD-M review

At the beginning of 2017, I was in the market for a more modern car to replace my 2004 Saab 9-3 Aero. I do a lot of kilometres each year, so I was looking for a car with relatively low kms on the do that would have excellent fuel economy, would be sporty and be a head-turner. With a budget of under $20,000, the Alfa Romeo Giulietta fit the bill...

2013 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Distinctive review

After over four years of ownership with "G" – Giulietta just doesn't roll of the tongue – I have mixed, but mostly positive, feelings towards one of the most reliable car Alfa's ever produced (up to this point). The Distinctive model was one rung below the proper top of the line hot hatch QV, so with 125kW it wasn't short of power...

2016 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Veloce TCT review

Alfa Romeo want the people driving their cars to be part of the driving experience – not distance them from it. I get that car companies may be only responding to progress and customer demand, but there is nothing like really 'driving' a car. I like to know that the engine is there when you stick the boot in. My car has the TCT (in Alfa speak, twin clutch transmission)...

2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Progression JTD-M Review

This is my first Alfa and my first small diesel. I have owned it now for 18 months and have completed 30,000km. I love this car. I especially love the handling, the performance and the fuel economy. Initially I didn't like the Anthracite colour but it has grown on me over time and now I really like it...

1975 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT Review

Having owned several Alfettas, For their time they were great cars, Ok Rust, rust and rust , electrical quirks aside the performance and economy for their time was amazing, wet weather handling wasn't a forte and constantly adjusting the handbrake and rear pads was a pain. The air con was iffy at best, but the rewards or driving were worth it...

2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Progression 1.4 Review

The best car I have owned. Superb reliability and durability with reasonable service costs. Love the DNA, handling acceleration and 1000km per tank of predominantly motorway driving. Excellent night vision on low beam. TCT transmission smooth and intuitive with latest mapping. Make sure your dealer upgrades the mapping at service if not done already...

2014 Alfa Romeo Giulietta Progression 1.4 Review

After two weeks traipsing around Europe relying on red open topped double decker buses as our transport, my partner and I were very much looking forward to getting on the roads ourselves. Six months earlier back home in Sydney I booked a small premium vehicle online. An Audi A3 was featured but I knew that was not necessarily what we were going to get...

2009 Alfa Romeo Mito Review

When you first look at the MiTo Sport, you'll notice it doesn't look particularly, well, sporty. Apart from the powder-coated red calipers, and the dual exit muffler, nothing really calls out "Power...SPEED!" Not saying it doesn't look nice, of course. The MiTo possesses the inherent beauty most Alfa owners can attest to...

1986 Alfa Romeo GTV Review

The engine barks with each downshift, ricocheting off nearby surfaces. The brake pedal sinks into the footwell, pinching the front left momentarily into the corner. Weight galloping onto the front axle, the car gently begins to rotate. Modulating the throttle around the bend the steering becomes feather light and delicate...

2015 Alfa Romeo 4c Launch Edition Review

From someone who is a. A Motor Dealer, b. A Ferrari owner (430 and 458) let me state categorically that this is arguably the most fun you can or are ever to have, with your clothes on, Ferrari aside, under $150,000 After replacing the 2013 Chinese made PARROT audio system (Really? In an Italian car?) with a better Clarion system and good speakers (out go the paper ones) fitting a rear view camera (screen in the rear view mirror) and learning how to get in (easy - fall in) and out (and fall out) gracefully, this is an awesome car...

2010 Alfa Romeo 147 Selespeed Review

It started all those years ago; back in spring of 2013 when I was a wee 19 year old, my hunt for the perfect first car was underway. I looked at Punto's, C1's, Astras, Mazda3's, Lancers and more (except for Corolla's & Golf's) all under about $8000, nothing really excited me, until I keyword searched 'Alfa Romeo 147' and 'Under $8,000' then I found it, a 2004 Alfa Romeo 147 Ti, I took it for a drive...
