    Sports Car International, June 1990

    "The Alfa has an excellent engine and well-styled body, but in light of the strong competition, Alfa's thin dealer network, and its lower than average build and design quality in several areas, the 164 will have an uphill battle in the marketplace."

    Car and Driver, Sept 1993

    Highs: Italian performance, handling and personality; new, improved electrical system.
    Lows: Not all Italian reliability problems are electrical.
    The Verdict: Still a gamble, but the odds are much better.
