FCA is a poorly run company; they should have had Alfa Romeo up and running long before this, according to their own announcements. But you seem to hold FCA to a higher standard than Ford who for years built "crappy overdressed" Fords called Lincolns (and Mercurys).

BTW, has anyone seen an Alfa Giulia on the road? I don't get the drift that FCA has got it together for Alfa yet.


Oh, really?

This is The Alfa Romeo MiTo , builded on the FWD Fiat Punto (B class) platform. You can see it in the Alfa Romeo european web page

Although I did reference your statement in my comment, it wasn't meant to be personal. I have noticed that your comments about Ford/Lincoln are balanced and did not mean to offend. Since I came upon that thread through the FIN-Lincoln site, I maintained that frame when I made that comment. I guess that was inappropriate.

I think the announced Alfas are stunning but I hate what FCA's CEO is doing and how he's doing it (using Jeep to finance questionable brands, screwing Fiat dealers, shopping for bailout partners, etc.). Until I see Alfa dealers and Alfas on the road, I still consider them "unobtanium."

My error. I forgot about the MiTo. I probably should have said "marketed in the U.S." FCS wisely chose not to import MiTos as they would have tarnished the Alfa Romeo brand here. Thanks for the correction.

That is a **** good looking CUV. The one thing I keep wondering is what is the point of Maserati anymore?
