General Information

Alfa Romeo
Stick Shift
I purchased the car in 2010 and had driven it for about 45,000 miles. It now has about 162,000 miles. It was my daily driver and was used to take my son to school and for me to meet clients here in San Diego California. I believe to be the 3rd owner of the vehicle. Purchased it for $2500 and have invested at least another $5000 + in its’ maintenance.

The car passes smog here in California and gets on average 19/21 mpg in the city and closer to 25 mpg on the freeway. It has been maintained by Rothmans auto works in Poway. He is a great mechanic for Alfas and other fine Italian cars. I have a stack of maintenance records about an inch thick. Oil changes have been done religiously every 3000 to 4ooo miles and I have done the bulk of them. The car drives very well and grips the road. The current sets of Hankook Tires have 8000 miles on them and feel great both on freeways and mountain roads.
The AC is working competently both in heat and cold. The doors all have a lighted red safety light and a floor courtesy light. This car also has a unique fog light at the rear of the vehicle which is very useful in dark area.
I will include 6 quarts of Kendall Synthetic and a filter with this sale.

Original spare still holds air and tool kit is in the trunk.
I also have the CD with the mechanics manual in it.
Fixed rearward mirrors by cleaning contacts Yeay…
Some of the major repairs made are as follows.
