Alfa Romeo Service in Caneberra?

By johnandpen - 20 June 2013 22

Hi All,

Just bought my first Alfa Romeo, and I’m quite excited.

Can anyone recommend a good Alfa Romeo service agent in Canberra? A google search only brings up the dealer here, but I was hoping for something… more.

Cheers.

What’s Your opinion?

Alfa Romeo? Service?

Don’t waste your time – if rumours have any truth, most Alfa Romeos are rusted out before the first service falls due.

That was close to the truth about Alfas of the 70s and 80s, but no longer the case. It used to be said that when buying an Alfa you paid for the motor and chassis – the rest was thrown in for free. Soviet-sourced steel with a high sulphur content (apparently) and minimal rustproofing as well as time spent languishing on the docks in Italy due to labour strikes are all reasons I’ve heard for their amazing ability to rapidly succumb to the laws of entropy.

Modern Alfas don’t rust, but they perhaps lack a bit of the character and charm of the oldies. Although I wouldn’t mind a new Giulietta 1750 QV in white. Hubba hubba!
