Good Service from an Alfa Romeo
For the past few years I have made a habit of writing to you about my present mode of transport which is now a 13-monthold Alfa Romeo Alfetta.
This splendid car has so far given very little trouble, the only bad points being rust under the front scuttle, failure of the rubber pipe connecting the carburettors, and poor demisting.
The ride is a marked improvement on the Berlina, as is the economy, often 33 m.p.g. The gear-change can be awkward, especially when cold, but the steering, brakes and road-holding are a joy. At nearly 11,000 miles, the oil consumption is negligible and the tyres look good for at least 20,000 miles.
The engine is willing to run at 1,500 r.p.m. in overdrive and, when needed, produce a real surge of power. Incidentally, why do so few cars have an overdrive, if only for reasons of economy and smoothness?
In conclusion, I must mention the help and friendliness of the Alfa Romeo OC.
