Used Alfa Romeo 159 2006 – 2012 review
You can’t accuse the Alfa Romeo 159 of blending in with other cars on the road; its distinctive front grille and jewel-like headlights certainly catch the eye. Unfortunately, it’s a case of style over substance because, although it’s reasonably accomplished in most areas, the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes C-Class are all much better prospects.
Interior Alfa romeo 159 headlight space is good, and certainly better than the model it replaced, the 156. Two adults can fit in the back, while front passengers aren’t left wanting for room. The boot is also a good size and shape although, being a saloon, the size of the opening is limited.
The 159 has impressive grip through bends and rides well on most road surfaces, but body roll isn’t contained and the car can feel unwieldy on twisty roads. You can also hear the suspension thudding over the worst bumps. The steering is accurate, but not the most responsive.
Servicing costs are high, and it’s certainly worth looking for Alfa Romeo specialist independent garages for maintaining older cars. Alfa doesn’t have the best reputation for reliability, so consider taking out an extended or independent warranty.
The 1.9-litre diesel manages 47mpg, while the 2.4-litre does 41.5mpg, or 39mpg in four-wheel-drive form. The 1.9-litre petrol can eke out 32.5mpg, but the 1.8-litre beats that with 36.7mpg. The 2.2-litre does 30.1mpg and the 3.2 V6 24.6mpg.
The 1.9-litre diesel has the lowest CO2 emission, so will cost the least to tax, while the 1.9-litre, 2.2-litre and 3.2-litre petrols all emit over 200g/km, so are noticeably more expensive. The 1.8-litre petrol and 2.4-litre diesel both pump out around 180g/km.
Some 159 owners swear by their cars – others swear at them. Reliability is patchy, with a wide range of issues reported.
The engine’s ECU Alfa romeo 159 headlight can give up the ghost, particularly on the diesel cars, resulting in a total loss of power and stranded owner. Other electric-gremlins include non-functional cruise control and windscreen wipers.
Brake problems have also been reported, which require replacement parts to fix, as have timing belt issues. Check the inside edges of front tyres for excessive wear – the front tracking may need adjustment.
Alfa Romeo dealers can be one of the biggest drawbacks to owning a 159. Some are helpful and polite when thing go wrong, while others couldn’t care less. If you find a good garage, stick with it.
In the executive market, diesel is king, so think carefully before buying a petrol model. They’re far rarer on the used market than the diesels and will depreciate faster. However, if the price is low enough, they can be an economical option. The 1.9-litre petrol with 160bhp is a sensible option, followed by the 185bhp 2.2-litre, and lastly the 256bhp 3.2 V6. In late’07 the 1.9-litre was replaced with a 1.8-litre engine with 138bhp, but has much better fuel economy and lower emissions.
The 148bhp 1.9-litre diesel is the most common engine, and the best bet, followed by the 2.4-litre unit producing 200bhp. There is an option of four-wheel drive on the V6 petrol and larger diesel, but it doesn’t substantially enhance the car’s dynamics. Automatic gearboxes are optional on all models other than the 1.9-litre and 2.2-litre petrol engines.
Every model is well equipped, with the base Turismo fitted with alloys, dual-zone climate control, electronic stability control and four electric windows. Lusso spec gets leather trim and parking sensors.
