Alfa Romeo's Quality

Theres this 1993 Alfa Romeo in really nice condition, for $3200...I did a Kelly Blue Book look up for this car and it came out to be a little more then what these folks are asking.

How reliable are these cars? I really like the "Luxariousness" of this car but don't really know how reliable they are becuase they arn't common around here.

Your key phrase is "they aren't common around here". I would be checking on the availability of parts and knowledgeable mechanics in the area before I even considered whether to buy one.

They aren't common because they are not imported any more
-haven't been for years
The trick will be getting someone to work on them
-you can't go to a dealer lol

I would suspect you'd more than make up for any "deals" you got on the vehicle by paying more for parts and service

If they are available

I've never worked on them (well, these new ones anyway), so I can't tell you from personal experience as to whether they are easy or difficult to DIY repair

I think tow_guy hit the nail on the head with his advice
If you can find a mech who'll work on it and parts...

We tow one every now and then, but I can't tell you how hard a time the owners have in getting them fixed.
