Well, FCA/Alfa really doesn't care what people want, only what they want to sell to them. I've owned nothing but Alfas since the late 60's, and I've never ever been asked as to what I would want if Alfa introduced a new car. They could care less, as Alfa owners of the past do not fit their new customer demographics at all. In general, owners of older Alfas in the US are separate from FCA, and should accept that.
As with the preferences I may have had for what my life was, is, and will be, they are my choices, regardless of the pressures from others, and I prefer to not buy something I do not want. The new Alfas (yes, I've driven the new Giulia, and yes, it would be entirely adequate for basic transportation) do not meet my standards/criteria for spending that amount of money on a new car based on my preferences. Sorry, FCA, at this time you do not measure up.
