    Alpine has started Looking To Buy in Chrysler Delta.
    Hello    I am tempted by a Delta, knowing that it is really a Lancia.    Is there a buyer's guide or something? I don't know much about these cars. Are they built in Italy?...
    • Alpine

      Many thanks ForzaLancia, I will take that all on board. I must say, the more I look into them the more I am liking them.  

    • kapetanikolas

      Great review above by Forzalancia. I would only emphasise the aspect 'space'. The car has enormous inside space, comparable to (or even bigger than) cars of larger category. Especially the space for back seat passengers is shocking.

       

      In terms of performance, engines are very good. I have the 1.4 MA and although fuel consumption is a bit high, the engine has good responsiveness and surprisingly good acceleration, even when you are on 6th gear cruising leisurely on the motorway. Road feedback of course is light years back in comparison to an Alfa Romeo, steering feels imprecise and gear change less smooth, so coming from an Alfa GT I feel a bit "out of my waters", as it actually feels like a boat in comparison to the GT, although they have almost the same dimensions. But let us not forget that it is a completely different car, addressing different public.

       

      In terms of design, the car beats hands down any 2020 model and the Platino version with the 18" wheels is just astonishingly beautiful. The car that you sent on the link is the 'argento' basic version (not sure how it is called in the UK), I would wait to get a higher spec version. Don't bother with the navi-radio, it is useless by modern standards.

       

      An important aspect to take into consideration is who is going to service it, in continental Europe FIAT network is extensive, not sure how it is in the UK.

      As usual, after doing it twice, its not done it again  B).

       

      Seems to be the story nowadays where it does odd things just to worry/p*ss me off. If it weren't so useful, and if there was a similar vehicle with stow and go, it would be traded in :angry:

      Try an independent - mine sorted out in a few minutes, I thought all of one cluster had gone -but it was the s/start, of which I never use, much prefer the handbrake and older driving skills.

      Same thing happened with my wife's Delta, I just replaced the switch and turned the ignition key on and off 11 times and that cleared the fault!!!
      You don't need access to the dealer, always.
      Better to find a decent independent or a former Chrysler dealer, I bought her car in Stafford from Arnold Clark trade sales
    • Andrewgrale
      It would be worthwhile to get multiecuscan software and a cable set, it gives you access to a lot of useful systems in the FCA group cars and vans

    • gordy

      Right ok your cars same as mine as I fitted towbar as well. I fitted a relay though, just means you got to get a supply wire from battery up front or from an interior supply. One picture shows the wires at both lights and what they do. Another picture shows all the wires that come down interior spin channel of car. Third picture shows the offside wires with relay behind cover. One of my pictures is too big to transfer onto here, one with rear light wires that's needed. Found out how to do it last year but but..  Thank heavens for that but still in dark on resizing. Had to take pictures on pictures then send them from me to me. Drizzling outside and dogs looking at me. Was going to but maybe someone could draw a better picture of the wires, colors, connections as I'm blogged.

      I think the boot lock (if it's the same as Punto)may be your problem....take it out,clean and check it.....I got a new replacement (genuine) for about 20£ for my partner's 2006 Punto.
      Fitting is a doddle....

      Hi there!

       

      Would that be the 4th Generation, up to 2008, or 5th Generation, from 2008 onwards, slightly squarer design?

       

      From previous posts on here, not my personal attempts, 4th Gen is far from a simple job. Unless of course there has been any recent product developments of course!!

       

      No knowledge of 5th Gen sorry pal!!

    • pdabedford

      Hi thanks for the reply, its the 5th gen new shape  I live in hope :)

      cheers anyway

    • bignev

      Welcome!

      I think we would all like to find that one!

      Sadly from my own experience it's a matter of using all 4 comparison sites, then Aviva, Direct Line, and any others not on comparison sites.

      The moneysavingexpert site by Martin Lewis gives a good run down on this, and also the order that is best to run the sites in.

       

      I had Admiral be brilliant for 2 years, then rubbish for the last 4, and Aviva great for 2 years, followed last year by a 30% hike! And my wife gets a 20% discount on Aviva as an ex employee and pension holder!!

       

      Now with Sheilas wheels, just about to renew for the 2nd year.

       

      There's just no rhyme or reason to why they like some people or cars!
