    • Alfa 156 that grates

      WE SENT your concerns to Alfa for their comment, and I believe they have contacted you. Their response to us was that you should take the car to an Alfa Romeo dealer to have the car inspected so the problem can be assessed. Their belief was that the damage was probably caused by impact with a large pothole. Take their advice and have it checked.

    • Suspense is unbearable

      I HADN'T heard of this problem before, so I passed your comments on to Alfa importer Ateco. They say they would like to check the car themselves. They believe the suspension damage was probably caused by a heavy impact from a large pothole. They recommend, rightly, that you get the car to an Alfa dealer as soon as possible.
