    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.

    21,000 miles may 2 2020 while exiting my neighborhood, electronics failed again and the car would not accelerate anymore; i was stuck in the middle of a heavily trafficked us highway, with the risk to be hit by other cars. The car went into the normal drive mode and i was not able to switch to economic or dynamic driving mode anymore, car would not run over 40mph. All kind of warnings started showing up on the dashboard. I had to stop/start the car a few times, and it resumed functioning. Current major failure-30/05/2020, cannot say the car mileage because the dashboard screen totally blacked out, 2020. All customized controls settings went back on factory settings and the center dashboard on the driver side is completely blacked out. Car is blocked in normal driving mode without the possibility to switch to dynamic or economic mode. Esc warning is activated on the dashboard. *tr

    Exterior lamps (headlamps/tail lamps) do not turn on when windshield wipers are on. As both the exterior lamps and windshield wipers are usually set to automatically turn on and off as appropriate (using dusk and rain sensors), it? S quite probable the driver will forget to turn on the exterior lamps when the wipers turn on, for instance. Furthermore, most all cars i have driven with both rain sensors and automatic headlights, across numerous domestic and foreign brands, do have functionality which turns on the exterior lamps (headlamps/tail lamps) when wipers are activated, further complicating the issue with alfa romeo - it is the drivers expectation for exterior lamps to toggle on and off automatically in all situations, based on previous experience and also the expectation that automatic lights will automatically turn on and off when necessary.

    On may 9, 2018, the vehicle underwent the recall #u36/nhtsa18v-205 to seal the potential water intrusion that would affect the body control module. However, on december 16, 2019, a noticeable amount of water was located on the passenger floor board and after driving for 20 minutes on the freeway at 65 mph, we experienced what we found out to be later water intrusion that affected the body control module. As recall #u36 describes we experienced the following issues: 1) the turn signals spontaneously engaged as well as did not engage when requested, 2) the fan did not operate, 3) the passenger side front and rear doors would lock/unlock randomly, 4) a warning symbol displaying on the dash indicating that the proximity sensors are not functioning, 5) a warning symbol displaying on the dash indicating that the parking brake was not engaging while driving without prompt from the driver, 6) the headlights were rapidly alternating from high beams to low beams, 7) complete loss of headlight function during hours of darkness. Based off of the aforementioned incident, it appears that either: 1) the recall was never performed on may 9, 2018 as indicated on the scanned invoices or 2) the recall that was performed on may 9, 2018 was not properly completed. On january 3, 2020, the dealership considered the vehicle fixed by only replacing the bcm. The dealership failed to identify the location of where the water entered the vehicle cabin. Therefore, they failed to fix the underlying problem that caused the damage to the bcm and future damage can be expected to occur from water entering the vehicle cabin.
