Alfa Romeo Owner Car Reviews

2008 Alfa Romeo 159 2.2 JTS Ti review

I've been thinking of writing about my most favorite car I have ever owned, but as yet have not done so. A search on a review of a Sonata (a car I no longer have) gives a reason as to why I don't own this car any more. A little background. I like cars. I am surely not the only one, but I believe there are very few who can claim to have done what I have...

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce review

This is an update on the Giulia Veloce that was purchased in June 2017. It has since had its first service and a full update of the engine management and entertainment software. It remains the best-looking car in the sedan universe, and constantly getting looks from men, women, children, adolescents and anyone with an eye for beauty...

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio First Edition review

1983 was the final year of my schooling in a large country town. It was a year with highs and lows. I can remember watching Australia winning the America's Cup at school while we all sung the new national anthem Down Under by Men at Work in unison. In 1983, I asked the new girl out to the flashy twin cinema in my father’s old car, a 1966 220S Mercedes...

2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Veloce review

This Giulia Veloce is an upgrade from my Giulietta. It is stylish, smooth, reliable, handles perfectly, sips fuel in Advanced Efficiency mode, and has not skipped a beat since purchase. The seats are super premium and better than in the German opposition. Steering is telepathic and pin sharp. The motor pulls like a train and sounds lusty in Dynamic mode...

2013 Alfa Romeo Giulietta 1.4 review

I deliberated long and hard before purchasing 'the G' as it's become affectionately known. Ideally, I was after something small and stylish that you don't see many of. After traipsing through car yard after car yard of Renaults, Peugeots, Fiats (you get the idea), I settled on a four-year-old 'poverty pack' Giulietta with very low kays...

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...
