14 Alfa Romeo Europe’s most reliable brand?

Cover for Alfa Romeo Europe’s most reliable brand?

According to this survey – yes!

With the small lot size, the result is less meaningful than with a large brand with many vehicles.

Nevertheless, one can see a trend that many would not expect. Maybe the average Alfa customer is more careful with his car than other brands average customer. At least I would not drive around with such a smoking vehicle.

That is seriously shocking. The Italian brand was famous for building cars that were full of character but never worked. Then again, the Busso V6 was a masterpiece and ran great, too. I guess the Fiat ownership somewhat payed off.

"the average Alfa customer is more careful with his car than other brands average customer''
What do you mean? We just spend some hours on the internet looking for a solution for that not so normal noise we heard from the suspension / engine, telling the mechanic the problem exactly, being there at the repair, checking the oil every time we go to a gas station, have a complete record for every change of the status of the car. Does not every car owner do all these?

As FastestLaps said German manufacturers (maybe Porsche is an exception) are way less reliable than in the 80's. Their hunger for more and more power, more and more electronic quirks and features has made their cars extremely complicated, so much that even legendary German engineering, precision and work ethic can't make them as reliable as a German cars once were.

Interesting, Alfa used to be the ultimate unreliable car followed by Jaguar (you needed always 2 Jag's: 1 to drive the other under repair..).
Today it's maybe more Audi's territory??

Actually it seems that alfa makes reliable cars...
I didn't own cars off all brands, but from my experience and those shared between friends the result wasn't shocking at all (i'm thinking on alfa and, for example the german brands)...
The theory of owners being more careful doesn't seem likely at all. The excuse off tchê inferior volume also doesn't seem to hold, these arent limted edition cars like koenigsegs...

But... breakdowns are part of Alfa Romeo's charm and character!

i'll believe this isn't an anomaly or faulty sampling if alfa manages to hold the rank for longer than 1 month
I mean have you read about the Giulia and how awully unreliable it is?
