22: Alfa Romeo Giulia
No, we aren’t talking about the current Giulia, a well-rounded sedan. We’re talking about the earlier model sold decades ago. The car was a surprise in design, but performance didn’t live up to the hype. While Alfa Romeo can build an incredibly beautiful car, reliability has always been brought into question. With such a small dealership network and very few familiar technicians, these cars are a pain to own.
Nevertheless, the styling was far ahead of its time. The beauty of the car often overruled the logic of owning one, and that’s why the Giulia has a cult following. The handling was also incredibly on point for the time period, and the car did perform well when it was running correctly. But there are other options from this time period that are easier to work on and more reliable to own.
