    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.

    I was advised by the alfa romeo dealership that the rear brake pads and rotors will need replacement, while the front brakes are fine. This occurred at 31,500 miles. According to the dealership, this is common and rear brakes on this car typically need replacement at 20,000 miles. Alfa's customer service confirmed this. The dealer also stated that this is related to the electric parking brake. In my opinion, this is a safety issue as a typical driver does not expect brake replacement after such a short period of time. If this is related to the electric parking brake, as advised by the dealer, the rear brake pads may be dragging and heating the rotors while the car is in motion, therefore reducing the stopping power when needed. I believe this is either a poor design, poor materials and workmanship or a defect in the parking brake and should be addressed. Checking this online, i find this is a common issue and i feel it should be investigated before it leads to an accident.

    While driving on a highway around 3 am in dark environment, going at 63mph, the vehicle completely shut off in less than 1 second with no warning at all. Brakes failed, steering failed, engine shut off, all gauges including speedometer and tachometer stopped functioning, all electrical related functions failed, headlight and taillight shut off, unable to turn on hazard light. Right after the complete failure, i tried to restart the vehicle on the highway while still in motion but the vehicle was completely unresponsive. The vehicle is barely steerable with the steering assist fail and had to switch from the left lane to the right lane with no turn signals on, and had to coast to a highway exit because of the brakes and engine failure. After stopping at the exit, i was unable to turn on the hazards light and all doors are locked except the driver side door, then i called roadside assist for help, the vehicle was then towed away.

    With only 11,000 miles the vehicle has received four major repairs, two incidents could have resulted in an accident. 1. Blind spot monitoring system; one day in repair shop 2. No radio or navigation system; one day in repair shop 3. Seizing-up or locking off right-rear brake pad that grinder into brake rotor. This made steering difficult. Vehicle was in repair shop for one week. 4. Malfunction of start & stop system, and electronic throttle control while driving in rush hour interstate traffic; nearly disabling vehicle intraffic. Speed limited was reduced to 25mph in a 65mph highway. Car was disabled for a few hours but errors mysteriously went away. During this event we discovered the alfa romeo in our residence closed with no notification. If vehicle remained disabled the next option will be too tow the vehicle to omaha, ne.
