" the point I was making was that FCA/Alfa didn't respect customer loyalty, and that point still stands"
Have to admit, I am disappointed in that as well, considering that Alfa Romeo has been, for us, a "specialty" car, representing something more unique than the average. Of course, now, with them really trying for mass sales to the general public, we who kept the name alive in the US do not fit their sales demographics. In essence, the heck with you guys. You won't buy enough to really help us out.
With luck and good care, I'll just keep my LS, etc, I think.
