Welcome to the right place to get your questions answered. Make sure you take note of all the members who are having a trouble free ownership experience as well as the ones who have had problems. Or just listen to your heart and buy a Giulia.
That Giulia of mine has been a joy!! Fixed computer Updates week 1 of ownership in April. Flawless since. 4,600 miles. worst problem is crowds of gawkers, nose prints on windows and errant drivers trying to get a look or throw a thumbs-up.
Saw my first Giulia on the road yesterday in Madison, WI (visiting family).
I was struck by how beautiful the car was! I had seen a QV in person at an auto show before... I wasn't prepared for how much I liked the non-QV as well.
To me the car is worth dealing with potential first year/first production hiccups, and yes, they do seem to be somewhat reported out of proportion. Though it is good to give pause, hopefully FCA responds to these issues in the correct way.
