Should I buy a used Alfa Romeo Giulia?
It has been only 4 years since the model was first released in 2017. It’s really hard to tell how well it is going to age. Known issues are mostly with electronics: sensors, programming failures and error codes. Many of these cars are still on the manufacturer’s warranty which is 4 year 50000 miles. Guess it makes sense to get an extended warranty for the Giulia because it’s unclear by now how bad the issues it will present you with in coming years. It costs a few thousands more but that way you’ll feel a lot more secure.
