I have a Giulietta 1750 TB (240bhp), which replaced a Giulietta 1.4 MultiAir (170bhp). Before that a Mito 1.4 MultiAir (135bhp). So 9 consecutive years of Alfas, and all three cars have been fine - the sole problem has been with the current one, which developed a water leak that needed a replacement rad under warranty. Actually the best engine of all was the 170bhp, which made for a really nicely balanced car. The 240bhp motor has too much power for the chassis & torque steers, plus the auto box (no longer a manual option) is a bit tiresome.
