ALFA ROMEO USA IS IN MY OPINION HIDING A CONSTANT PROBLEM THEY HAVE WITH StelvioS. THE OIL TURBO LINE HAS A FAULTY ORING AND LEAKS OIL ONTO ENGINE WHICH CAUSES SMOKE THAT CAN NOT BE HEALTHY TO BREATHE IN. I HAVE TALKED TO SEVERA ALFA DEALERS IN SERVICE DEPTS AND THEY CONFIRM TO ME THAT THEY HAVE FIXED NUMEROUS STELVIOS WITH THIS PROBLEM. THIS SHOULD BE A NATIONAL RECALL FOR REPAIR AT NO COST TO THE CONSUMER. I TUSUALLY HAPPENS CLOSE TO WARRANTIES EXPIRATION NEAR 50K MILES OR SHORTLY AFTER.
There was a issue with my vehicle turning on fine then once i got down the road it started to not go it completely stopped in mid drive on me and the engine light and oil light going crazy. It started sounding bad this has happened 3 times it shouldn? T be happening on a 2018 that? S been up to date on maintenance. I take the care home park it for a day then never day crank it up it cranks right up as if it did nothing the day before sounds normal runs fine no lights on at all but it did this 3 times in 3 months. Something is definitely malfunctioning. I also got in a alfa romeo group and 75 percent of the people has had the same issue with their vehicle rather it be the car or suv or year they all had the same engine type.
2018 Giulia QV BUT IT HAS BEEN IN THE SHOP IN PENSACOLA FOR OVER 7 CONSECUTIVE WEEKS AND THEY STILL HAVE NOT FIGURED OUT WHAT?S WRONG. UNDER ACCELERATION AND LEFT HAND TURNS THE SERVICE ELECTRONIC THROTTLE LIGHTS UP AS WELL AS VARIOUS OTHER LIGHTS. WHAT?S SCARY IS THE POWER STEERING TEMPORARILY STOPS, YANKING THE WHEEL HARD RIGHT AND I HAVE TO MUSCLE IT TO KEEP IT FROM RUNNING OFF THE ROAD. NOTHING SHORT OR DANGEROUS. I HAVE HAD A CASE OPEN WITH ALFA CARES AND HAVE TRIED TO ESCALATE WITH NO RESULT.
The light control for the 2018 alfa romeo gulia has always been set at? Auto?. Over the past few months, while the car was in park in our driveway with no key fob near it and no one touching the vehicle the headlights would blink on and off. This was observed about 4 times over the past 2 months. Recently, while driving the interior and exterior lights suddenly would dim, but quickly restore. On one occasion about 1 week ago, the interior lights remained dim but i was able to restore to the prior setting by adjusting the control on the dashboard. Last night, while driving on local streets having just exited from a highway, the interior and exterior lights turned completely off for about 2 seconds, went back on then turned completely off two more times and went back on. Upon arriving at home, the car was turned off. The auto setting for the lights was noted and the owners manual was reviewed to confirm the position of the auto setting was correct. I turned the control switch a few times while parked in my driveway and the lights turned on and off per the setting on the control. I returned the setting to auto. A call to the dealer service department to inquire if there had been any other complaints indicated there had been no other reports to them of the lights improperly functioning while parked or while driving.
