I've owned since Nov 2010 with part history and proof of dealer purchase. Not the fastest Alfa but is built to cruise and is nicely torquey, with an economical 48 MPG 1.9 115bhp 8v JTD. High mileage is due to a long motorway commute but for the last year has only been used on weekends as I commute by train now (the car is based in Bedford). Drives perfectly, all electrics are great, 6+ months MOT, good tyres. Standard factory CD player (code included). Totally stock apart from upgraed silicon turbo hoses from a previous service at Autolusso. The last cambelt and clutch was done at 170K at Autolusso in Jan 2014. Just had new oil and fresh coolant, so good to go! Bad bits: The aircon has a leak which was confirmed by kwikfit. It needs to be repaired but has not really been warm enough to prioritse getting it fixed. Like many Alfa's of a certain age, the red paintwork clearcoat has started to fade after 13 years and has been lightly repaired with the nearest match I could get (mitsubishi palmer red). It's hard to notice from a distance but would need a professional bodyshop to get it back to perfect. It has a slightly creeky suspension only at low speeds. It's always had it and each garage I visit and MOT no none can figure out what it is. It does not affect the car's great handling in anyway. Evening viewings past 19:30 in the week but can do daytime viewings at weekends. Next MOT due 21/11/2018, Part service history, Red, 3 owners, £800

Imported Check to see if the vehicle has been recorded as imported or used before the date the vehicle was registered in the UK, using information from the DVLA. If it is, background information cannot be provided for the period that it was out of the country. Therefore you should try to obtain as much information about the vehicle's history as possible from the seller. You should also check the vehicle documents carefully. Clear Clear Icon
Exported Check to see if the vehicle has been recorded as exported using information from the DVLA. If it is, background information cannot be provided for the period that it was out of the country.

Further recommended checks

Info Icon Auto Trader has not performed background checks against these 21 points, although the seller may have done. We advise you to perform a full check.

The seller may have conducted their own full check.

Outstanding Finance Check to see if the vehicle has outstanding finance against it. If it does, then contact the seller as quite often the finance agreement is settled on sale of the vehicle. However, please be aware that if you buy the vehicle, the finance company will remain the legal owner of the vehicle until the loan is repaid in full. Locked Icon
Previous Keepers Check to see how many previous keepers the vehicle has had and the dates of change of ownership. Locked Icon
Mileage Data Check to see mileage information. The check may flag up significant mileage discrepancies. A discrepancy indicates that the vehicle may have been 'clocked', and that at some point the odometer has been tampered with to display a lower figure than the actual mileage. If necessary contact the previous keepers of the vehicle (shown on the V5C). Locked Icon
Reg Plate Changes Check to see if the vehicle has any registration plate changes. Vehicles primarily go through plate changes so the owner can personalise the vehicle, so it’s usually nothing to worry about. It will always go back to an age related plate once the 'private' or 'cherished' plate has been moved to another vehicle. Locked Icon
Colour Changes Check to see if the vehicle has had any colour changes. Colour changes of a vehicle may be for the purposes of personalisation, so it's usually nothing to worry about. Vehicle owners are required to notify the DVLA of any colour changes which will then be noted on the vehicles V5C, the Vehicle Registration Certificate. Locked Icon
High Risk Vehicle Check to see if the vehicle is recorded as being at 'High Risk'. This usually means that a third party has an interest in the vehicle and is trying to track it to prevent it being sold on as ownership is under dispute. It often relates to a finance agreement, or where the vehicle was used for temporary use e.g. rental car, fleet car, courtesy car etc. It is not usually connected with the physical condition of the vehicle. Locked Icon
Recorded Vehicle Data (13) Check on vehicle details as recorded with the DVLA and shown on the V5C registration document. Locked Icon
Extra Data Check to see if there is any additional background information recorded against the vehicle. Locked Icon
Environmental Report Check to see how green this vehicle is. Locked Icon
