Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"It has never had any serious problems which is rare for these cars. Looks really good to the point where you just want to look at it all day. It drives like new and the engine is in insane shape for how old it is. The car also has a really good sport mode which actually changes the car so much to the point where it's almost a race car. This car has some faults as well here are a few: VERY FIRM RIDE certain pieces don't meet correctly, the interior plastic used on-top of the dash doesn't meet up correctly to the point where its bent out of shape. the doors are the heaviest I've come across to the point where if i open the door on a hill the door comes back and hits both of my legs."
"Even tho this car is old, it is amongst the nicest I have owned. I would not sell it for what they say it is worth. It handles very well, gets good mileage, very reliable, never breaks down. It has power everything, which I thought would be a problem...so far so good. I will keep this car until it gets a decent burial!"
"Great fun to drive, just the right amount of power. Extremely responsive and road holding. They really made an effort to avoid the legendary Italian rust curse. Not one bit anywhere, and it spent its entire life in the salt zone.
Keep an eye on the timing belt maintenance and you will have a very long lived car."
"I purchased this new in 1994. I have loved it every minute since then. The design, though NEW SCHOOL, back then still works, Pinanfarina brought us into the future on this one, It had many carry-over elements of the Testarossa which had just been designed. My only complaint is the plastic looking underskirts. The interior is a lesson in Italian craftsmanship.
The engine is as beautiful as it is capable. The handling is s responsive and the ride is supple over bad pavement yet the car goes where you point it. The front wheel drive does cause a bit of understeer when accelerating on the back half of a curve."
"Purchased the 1993 164L new. Still runs great and we have a terrific mechanic although he gets very little business from us. Reliability has been amazing - we were accustomed to Audi's and their continuous problems. Not an issue with Alfa, still get lots of questions and looks from others. Look forward to the return of Alfa to US"
