Get the Alfa. Already well depreciated. Got style which will make you smile.

Certainly some other brands are more reliable and or cheaper to run, but the most satisfying saloon car I've ever owned was an Alfa 164 and I only sold it (after 60K trouble-free miles) to protect my licence . Alfa's are much better than their very outdated reputation.

Last Alfa we owned was a Alfasud Sprint. Great motor but prone to rust pretty much everywhere.


Super little cars, but yes, rustbuckets (like many motors 30 years ago). The italians got their act together about the beginning of the 90's. I've owned 70's and 80's Fiat & Lancia, and 90's Lancia and Alfa - no comparison. Most Italian Fiat Group motors 1990 onwards seem to have been infinitely better made than their rustbucket predecessors, albeit that they lost their flair for a while.
