    Not THAT bad as the meme but there definitely is a grain of truth in the meme. Alfas depreciate fast as frick and there are reasons for that.

      Italian build quality isn't a meme, they genuinely are very unrelaible

      But they cant be as bad as people say right?
      Seems like people think they explode the second you buy em

        They don't exactly explode, in fact some Fiat engines they pack are actually reliable for a modern construction, the issue is the rest of the car, they are not long lasting cars. Pretty though, so as a second of fun car, why not, for a daily - hard pass. On the flip side, they are very green, most Alfas over 10 years i've seen so far already started biodegrading on their own.

        They won't explode but there's gonna be issues like corroded grounds causing random and unpredictible electrical faults, rust in general, interior clips breaking and rattling, lamp covers clouding up and so on

        Anecdotally, I've worked around some of the newer ones. It depends on what day they were built in the factory. I've seen Guilias that are pretty damn reliable and go 50k+ miles without much of an issue, and I've also seen some that were clearly made when Guissepe was plastered when be assembled it and they were perpetually broken shitboxes before they hit the first oil change.

            For Euros, sure. Keep in mind the number of Euros on this board who say BMW and VAG is bulletproof. They have no idea what bulletproof actually is.

            For a Fiat product, yeah. I meant that in reference to the rest of their lineup. An Alfa will never be a good example of reliability, but some of them are less of a garbage heap than others.

    Yes. Alfa Romeos are bad reliabilty cars. Dont get too much attracted to cars beautiful styling because most of the most beaufiful cars are less reliable. Replacement parts can be difficult to get.

    If you are in America, alfa has an awful reputation, and because it is forgein acquiring parts is a hassle and therefore expensive. Because of that, they depreciate like rocks

      yeah, parts availability sucks. i can usually source parts 4x faster than any dealer and they can be few and far in between depending on where you live

      >Because of that, they depreciate like rocks
      Believe me, they do that in europe too.

      every car in europe does than unless its a porsche

    that's the thing
    you buy a Mazda or a Toyota, you're gonna keep thinking about "damn i could have bought that Alfa" while driving
    instead if you buy an Alfa you're gonna be thinking "damn i love this car" even when you're gonna be waiting for the tow truck
