Alfa Romeo Giulia Breaks Silence On Reliability, Poor Quality Is Not The Issue!

By  | 

Alfa Romeo can move the skies and earth when building a brand new car but doing so will still leave the consumers unconvinced on the reliability of the vehicle.

This can be seen today with the all-new Giulia as the car is struggling to capture big volume sales due to strong worries on the reliability front. Well, the worries are spot on because there is a growing list of issues that are encountered with the Giulia.

If that is not bad enough, Alfa Romeo prefers not to think of the reported issues with the Giulia as nothing that is associated with reliability. Alfa Romeo shared earlier today that the issues with the Giulia are not down to low quality production. Instead, it is with the poor software which the car runs on.

Alfa said that the several Giulias that have broken down on the track is caused by the unapplied software updates. This has resulted in a buggy computer that manages the Giulia thus preventing the car from running at the desired level.

Well, we are going to give the Giulia a pass for now but if the issues are to remain even when the updates have been applied on the car, we will be quick to label the vehicle as unreliable.

    “we are going to give the Giulia a pass for now but if the issues are to remain even when the updates have been applied on the car, we will be quick to label the vehicle as unreliable.” I have no doubt about that? Though it’s particularly strange that all (or most) of the reliability issues happen in the U.S., a market where Alfa Romeo needs to re-establish the brand and where it could represent a threat to several German manufacturers. I’ve seen several reviews on tracks on European websites, with the reviewers driving the cars many laps at full speed without any problems. And how do you explain that the car has been able to do at least one full lap (with a record) of the 20+ km Nürburgring ? Seems to me there’s sometimes a desire from some American reviewers to prove by all means (but why ?) that the car is unreliable, and the last sentence of your article demonstrates it.
