Alfas were reliable in the 1930's as that was their only hope against the much more technically advanced Auto Union and Silver Arrows. An Alfa won the 532 km 1933 Spanish Gran Prix in. Three hours fifty minutes. I'd like to see a modern Alfa do that. F1 cars were road cars back then.


User avatar

Fastedee  3d ago

Consumer Reports bought a Giulia and had some problems but as yet the data is not conclusive and there are some positive owner reviews.
Skepticism is warranted with Fiat Groups track record.
Yet some people who attack Chevy and Cadillac for reliability conveniently forget that Alfa belongs to a car family Renowned for unreliability.


User avatar

Fastedee  3d ago

The irony of calling the Viper a tractor while lauding it's Fiat group Giulia stablemate is funny. The 4c Nurburgring lap was above board but the Giulia QV lap was as tricky as any by Honda,Lamborghini or VW.

Oh Beavis and Butthead again. I heard the story that saxy and BR2 are the greatest dump****s at fastestlaps. Still I'm not sure if this is the whole truth.

Which product today is flawless at release?

 

User avatar

saxy  3d ago

Not being flawless versus breaking down in a brand new car with just 100 miles is what you consider not just normal but being excellent? And again that story of top gear needing 3 Giulias cuz 2 broke down. Dude if you care to be so smartass, go buy one yourself before you come back to this page


User avatar

DrDuke  3d ago @saxy

And then you are going to tell me: your personal experience is not meaningful. As you did last time. You are so entertaining :D


User avatar

saxy  3d ago @DrDuke

No it has nothing to do with your personal experience. It's just to put your money where your mouth is. You can say anything you like on the forums how you say everyone should vote for Trump, and yet you vote Hilary, then you're simply not entitled to any credit for your words. Doesn't mean that voting Trump is the right thing either.

I on the other hand have personally contacted Alfa on when this car is arriving in my country and have checked multiple times, and was a serious buyer, up until I saw all the problems being highlighted, also all the problems that were quietly hidden away.

Giulia QV would be a blast as a trip rental provided you got CAA.


User avatar

saxy  2d ago @Fastedee

Actually that's what I am considering, renting one and blasting from Italy to the alps. But it would suck to be stranded by the road.


User avatar

BR2+  2d ago @saxy

How dare you to think that! Thinking an Alfa has any chance if breaking down and you being stranded on the side of the road and not being as reliable as a Honda, That sir is blasphemy!

Whatever province you live in there are good hilly parts even in Northern Saskatchewan or Manitoba and it would be less risky.

Many people are complaining about the car breaking down with just 3 digit mileage. I heard that the story is that Ferrari gave FCA a deadline that after this date they would not be involved in any other FCA projects. So they grabbed as many Ferrari engineers as they could and made them create the Giulia in the short st time possible. It's brilliant but it's not properly tested and ironed out.

Where was that stupid idiot who told me that Alfa cars are the most reliable in the world?

totally agree with you - there is no car show on television with such a level of depth (as far as I know). Just found this guy today.

TopGear is funny to watch but its more a show with cars. I like these abrode episodes the most - these who are like jungle camp with cars and all the faked accidents :)

The sport auto test on anneau du rhin short was in wet/damp conditions and poorly driven. When you watch the video of the alfa and the amg the drivers look different.
Alfa: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0QVXvIUZwY
AMG: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsMRH1QjAOA

Looks to me that this review has the quality of the Type R review they published - aka crap.


User avatar

BR2+  3w ago

First you have to ask, What were the conditions, The driver of both, And the options, Because if half of the time the QV is winking, It's losing the other half, And most tracks it's less then a full second or so, So yeah there is no way in hell even a fully kitted up Giulia is beating even a non CP M3 by 7 seconds, Thas just reduculous, That number time looks sketchy as all he'll with each lap the Alfa does.


User avatar

PPZ  1m ago

Giulia QV 7 seconds faster than M3 and faster than M4 GTS? Lol do you honestly believe that?

 

User avatar

biscione  1m ago

Yes, of course. Giulia Quadrifoglio is by far better than standard M3. Then, M4 GTS is a track version, but the gap from the Alfa is not too large to make unbeleavable the fact that Giulia has won.


User avatar

DrDuke  1m ago

All these wings on the M4 GTS adds drag and makes it slower. If you drag race an M4 with the power of the GTS against a M4 GTS the normal version would be faster. Just because it looks fast it hasn't to be faster in a straight line. :)


User avatar

PPZ  3w ago @biscione

Every other car review (besides this italian one) that have compared the M3 vs Giulia set lap times with 0.X second differences (with the M3 Competition usually being the fastest one)
A 7 second gap is just ridiculous and an outright lie.
According to that review the M3 Competition Package should be faster than the M4 GTS on track lol.


User avatar

DrDuke  3w ago @PPZ

I dont know what your sources are but mostly the alfa wins. It's not always the faster car but most of the time the better beside in the german reviews.


User avatar

biscione  1m ago

Auto magazine has tested Giulia Quadrifoglio on Balocco test track.
It has lapped in mere 2'50"21 becoming the fastest 4-doors sedan ever tested.
It has been 7" seconds faster tha BMW M3, more than 5" faster than M4, 1"6 faster than Audi RS6 and... 0"6 faster than BMW M4 GTS.

Very nice test. At least there is v-box accleration test of these three fantastic cars : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-4c6E77obs

Giulia QV did great. 0-60 mp/h 3,9s and 0-100 mph in 8,0s(!). That 0-100 mp/h time is realy impressive. 8,0s 0 - 161 km/h !

Totally surprised it was slower than the M3 competition in the other video. Well, slower as in like 2 hundredths. Gotta say the base M3 is a dog in comparison.

Curb weight according to wikipedia is 1524 kg.
The Quadrifoglio weighs 1,524 kilograms (3,360 pounds) (DIN) for a power-to-weight ratio of 3 kg/PS.[34] This is achieved thanks to the Quadrifoglio sharing the other models' composite and light alloy construction, as well as featuring a roof and engine bonnet made of carbon fibre.[22] It has a carbon fiber driveshaft and has optional carbon fiber seats and break-discs.
If a BMW M3 can weigh a Curb weight of 1,595 kg (3,516 lb) why is a Alfa Giulia Quadrifoglio so much havier? Because it is not. It is actually about the same.

Tare Mass or Weight
This is the weight of an empty standard vehicle with all of its fluids (oils, coolants) but with only 10 litres of fuel in the tank. We assume 10 litres was chosen as an industry standard to allow otherwise empty vehicles to be driven to and from a weighbridge.
In Australia a Giulia Quadrifoglio weighs 1585 kg = tare weight.
http://www.alfaromeo.com.au/vehicles/Giulia_QV_SPEC.pdf
The Australian model is with an automatic gearbox and RHD.
I don't know about any gravity differences but i do think if a Giulia has this tare weight in Australia, it might weigh the same in Europe.
Curb weight is with a driver and full tank (58 liter) of fuel.
So Curb weight for automatic would be 1585 kg + 48 liter (35 kg) + 75 kg (driver) = 1695 kg.
Curb weight manual is 40 kg less, 1655 kg.
