Introduction to the Romeo Alfetta
This may be the car for the owner who wants something a little different in the way of styling and performance. Both tho Saloon and the Coupe provide good roadholding and excellent braking, combined with a high level of comfort and finish.
Tho home mechanic should be aware howovor that lack of working space makes some servicing operations and the removal of major assemblies difficult and time-consuming.
A few special tools are required for some of the more intricate jobs, and there is an addiction to the use of pop rivets for fixing manycomponents which are usually oxpected to be retained with bolts and nuts to facilitate removal.
Othor than these points, the cars present no real problems for the enthusiast who has the time necessary to keep the standard of maintenance up to the specified level.
Spare parts are generally available from stock from agents, but may be considered expensive by comparison with similar production models from other manufacturers.
