Some don't know ow to drive in a manner which doesn't do damage or extreme wear. I met a guy who complained that Alfa clutches just didn't last, he having to have a new one every 6 months. turns out he always rode the pedal, letting the clutch slip at high revs whenever he was driving slowly. Carlo used to just laugh, but was happy to take his money, lol.
Still, I suspect the warning light may be defective, and the dealer is happy to take the money regardless.
BTW, for the miles and years with my 91S, the brake pad wear system has worked just fine, and when a pad became excessively worn, the light came on when it should. Installing new pads (yes, the pad was worn enough) put out the light. Only trouble I did have once was, the wiring plug for one of the pads cracked or something and so lost contact, causing the light to come on once in a while. the new pads eliminated that. The system otherwise works well. Of course, it only covers the front pads.
