The clutch has gone in our 2008 147 JTDM Alfa after only 33,000 km. Is this a common problem with this car? I feel ripped off.
Yours is the first report of a premature clutch failure on the 147 we’ve had, so it would seem it could be a one-off. Have the clutch checked once it’s been removed to see if you can determine why it has failed. It could be a manufacturing fault, or it could be worn out, an inspection should be able to tell you which it is.
