Alfa Romeo 166 2.0: I am going to buy Alfa Romeo 166 2.0 2003

This answer was rated:

I am going to buy Alfa Romeo 166 2.0 2003 five speed manual. There is one problem: gear three is not working. What you think, is this a good idea to buy this car? Price is very low. What you think there is probably gone broke?
HelloSir or Madam and thank you for your question!
Does the car have all the other gears when shifting?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Yes, it has all other gears working

Ok, the transmission will have to come out and the 3rd gear will have to be replaced from the sounds of it. You should consider this when you make an offer. It would likely be less expensive to have a used transmission installed to be honest.
Hope this helps!
