Sadly, this vehicle continues to have recalls as well as other issues that are never truly addressed. Each time I bring up and issue, I"m told, "that's just how Alfa Romeos are". When I turn on the heat, the windows fog up. When I turn on the defrost, the air is cool not hot. According to the technician, I need to keep the heat on "auto" versus setting the heat on a particular temperature. The problem with this advice, is that when the heat is on "auto" you can't control where the heat goes or the temperature. So after picking up my car, I followed this advise, which resulted in me driving the 50+ miles home with feet that were uncomfortably hot while my upper body did not warm - unless I took the heat off auto and adjusted the temperature and vents that were used.
I had concerns about my brakes squeaking, whether or not that was attributed to the recall, I have no idea because what I was told was that the technician could not recreate the issue. Odd since I heard the squeaking when I brought the car to the dealer and others questioned the squeaking when they were in the car the day before.
Also odd that my tire pressure light continues to come on. Regardless of the temperature - per the dealer, that's typical for Alfas when the temperature changes. Seems like every issue is typical for Alfas - so either the car is crap or the technicians are incompetent - no idea which one or if both are correct.
