Pros

  • Arguably one of the most beautiful sedans ever.
  • Exhilarating driving experience.
  • Beautifully appointed interior.
  • Shakes off previous poor reliability reputation.

Cons

  • Parts and labour can ask a premium.
  • Quadrifoglio will risk the health of you drivers licence.
  • Immense levels of depreciation.
  • Much improved build quality and reliability but still not perfect.

Verdict

Exterior:

  • Rear Brake Lights: Wires along the boot strut may split over time, causing brake light warnings, AEB, and cruise control malfunctions. Easily fixable at home if you enjoy a weekend project.
  • Sunroof Issues: Owners report sunroof getting stuck open, especially in hot sun. Some mention exorbitant repair quotes, with OEM parts and labor often priced at a premium.
  • Cost of OEM Parts: In Australia, the cost of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts and labor tends to be higher.

 

Interior:

  • Infotainment Systems: Pre-2020 systems can be slow and buggy, with Bluetooth dropping in and out. Software updates may help, but upgrading to a new system is an option.
  • Electronic Gremlins: Numerous electronic issues reported, largely attributed to the factory battery. Replacing the battery promptly is recommended to prevent random error codes and malfunctions however, this sometimes does not fix the issues.
  • Each Giulia example can suffer from its own unique electronic issues. We highly recommend both reading through owners groups and forums and visiting a qualified mechanic or Alfa Romeo specialist.j

 

Mechanically:

2.2L 4-Cylinder Diesel:

  • Similar to the units in Jeep Wrangler and Cherokee, it has a decent reputation for reliability.

So, when it comes to deciding whether to buy the Alfa Romeo Giulia, it’s not just about the car itself but also about its previous ownership.

The challenge arises because some owners choose to lease a Giulia without any intention of long-term commitment, often deferring or even neglecting critical maintenance.

Additionally, certain individuals approach ownership with expectations similar to those of Japanese or Korean cars, which are engineered to endure substantial neglect and continue functioning. However, Italian and European cars, in general, adhere to strict maintenance standards and schedules crucial for sustained reliability.

If you can confirm that the Giulia you’re eyeing has received meticulous maintenance, preferably from a passionate owner, and you commit to continuing the same level of care, then, yes, it can be a rewarding purchase despite not being flawless.

On the contrary, if there’s even a hint that essential services have been skipped or signs of misuse are present, it’s advisable to refrain from buying. Patience is key; wait for the right example or consider a more prudent option, perhaps a Lexus, letting rationality guide your decision over emotional appeal.
