Alfa Romeo 4C Concept - 01.03.2011
Alfa Romeo 4C Concept - 01.03.2011

A little bit of everything

Alfa Romeo's return to the United States is shaping up to be a major event as Autobild is reporting the brand will storm the 2013 North American International Auto Show with five models.

The magazine says we can expect the 4C, Giulia, Giulietta, a five-door MiTo and a Jeep-based crossover. There's also word of a new rear-wheel drive Spider - based on the Giulia or next-generation Chrysler Sebring - for 2014.

To all those longing for Alfa to come back to the States...have you been inside a recent Alfa Romeo? I have...and the quality is not that good. The interior looks great...but it feels like crap. I was really disappointed when I got into one during a trip through Europe...

Yes, they are known here in Europe as the cars with poor quality, but in recent years they've shown a lot of improvement especially 159 2.4 JTD engine, anyway people say that heart chooses Alfa, not the head.

The alfa has always been the Harley Davidson of cars, chosen merely for the looks/style. Because just like a harley you will spend more time fixing it than using it. But DAMN will you look cool when you do use it..

I'm happy for Alfa. Over in the UK the Alfa Giulietta is doing very well and looks really cool among the VW golfs & A3's. Thank god Fiat didn't sell Alfa to VW!

If you know anything about Alfa Romeo than you should know that Fiat is the one who is "killing" Alfa and puting them in big problems, Fiat even wanted to sell Alfa's rare expensive oldtimers from nothern Italy abandoned museum to some Japanese people but Italian government stopped that for good. I'm sure Volkswagen would sure be better for Alfa than Fiat. Employees in the factory actually called VW for help.

Woah woah woah, VW hasn't never ruined the heritage of any company they have bought.. They have nurtured it and growed it. Bugatti, Bentley, Lamborghini...VW would be a MUCH better match for alpha than FIAT.

Build the 2uetto or don't bother coming back. Yes, the 8C looks promising, but if it an outrageously priced niche car, it will have a short run as a boutique item. Bring back Alfas with soul!

Alfa Romeo will be a wellcome note in the US. These cars are so unique and well mannered you have to love them. If they manage a certain level of quality they should be successful.

If you read the articles that are linked above, you'd know that the 159 is being replaced by the Giulia, and the 'small Alfa sportscar' void left by the Brera will be filled by the 4C and the new Spyder. Why would you want them to bring the old models over, and sell them for just a few months before replacing them?

Uhhhh, Chrysler products sucked because they are Chrysler. Don't blame anyone else. They are the bottom of the food chain with quality and typically with the owners intelligence level. Just look around.

You don't know what you are talking about...your comments are out of date and you show a particular amount of prejudice in condemning all Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge drivers without merit. The company is climbing out of the hole that Daimler & Cerebus dug for them. Daimler controlled everything, design and spending and created among other things the abomination called The Dodge "Caliber" and put the lowest cost interiors into the vehicles. Cerebus wouldn't spend any money to improve the situation. Fiat has begin to change that and it's going to steadily improve. If I was a betting man and judging from your name I would say you drive a Ford F150 which I just watched a report on the Network news tonight...you should be careful your fuel tank is held on by cheap, rusty brackets which apparently just give way and cause your vehicle to go up in flames. That might cause quite a scene at the trailer park.

I wouldn't get too cheeky about bursting into flames. Jeep Cherokee's and Liberty's are at the top of the list for gas tanks going boom. Recall demands and court cases are abundant, as well as quiet redesigns. My brother is a long-haul trucker and he tells me that nearly every vehicle he has seen on fire in the last ten years has been a jeep (he says he has seen about 20 such fires). Google this if you don't believe me.

It was Chrysler that nearly bankrupted Daimler, with their outdated, unreliable junk. Daimler tried to improve Chrysler, but at the end of the day, a turd is a turd, no matter what you do with it.

Are you kidding me? Daimler cheaped out on Chrysler? I mean Daimler AG spends more on R&D/year then Chrysler was worth..They are just a bunch of douchebags, never going to change until they die. Even back in the day(1980-90s) chryslers were the shittiest north american cars. I mean they didn't have a single car that even made it near the top of any reliability or customer satisfaction survey. Low grade engines, low grade steel, low grade plastics. The only thing they ever did right was signing a contract with Mitsubishi for some engines. Those engines were quite reliable, the car fell apart before the engines died.

Alfa's return to the USA is seeming more like a long wait for a big whiff, than it is a wish fulfilled. I really want to buy a reliable, desirable and not too overpriced Alfa. If all they have are FWD cars, rebadged Chryslers and ultra-high priced exotics, than they should just stay away. If the affordable models are mundane or badge engineered jobs, than who really cares. They really need to produce something exciting to the enthusiast, at an attainable price.

I have a passion for Alfa as well but we have to be realistic. Lexus-Toyota, Honda-Acura, Nissan-Infiniti, and other automakers as well do the same thing to lower cost. Before we start complaining give them a year or 2 to sort out the details. Chrysler products sucked because Daimler held the purse strings. When you have hardly any money for development what do you expect. Fiat & Chrysler are working with the products of the failed marriage with Daimler and then Cerebus didn't address any shortcomings as their plan was to rape and pillage as well. Fiat & Chrysler will make better cars with better tech, higher efficiency and yes even more desirability but it's not going to happen overnight. BMW, Mercedes, and Audi have or are going to have FWD cars to lower the cost of entry level luxury and increase sales so evidently this is called a business plan. I want a new Alfa 4C and I bet it will drive quite nicely.
