Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

You get a certain buzz that can't be explained with words driving the 147, an excitement like no other car that engine size. Every time I park it I always have to stop and look back at it with admiration, thinking about the next time I get in. While the rear can be ignored and more resembles a Peugeot, the front makes up for it with that typical and signature Alfa design, sexy V grill and number plate to the side. It is a fairly quiet car when going around the city but if you want it too roar, boy it roars. If you want a car to pull out and feel confident you won't be hit, this is that car. When I bought it, the water pump and timing belt had just been replaced so I got lucky, the only problem was the linkages in the gear stick which was sorted within the day. Everyone always says, don't buy an alfa, but most likely, that person has never owned one, go online and read the reviews for yourself, and the best thing about this car is that the problems that occur, are the same problems that occur on every other alfa, just go on to the alfa forum online and guarantee the problem will be there with people giving instructions how to fix it without paying hundreds in a garage.
