I wonder why?
Hi i think it is as simple as this if your a nice stable driver and are not harsh with the car and the car is well serviced i think your chances are very good with having no problems and if you are harsh and do not service when you should well your going to run in big problems with Auto Transmission's i have never had a problem yet with mine apart from the gear box being changed at 27k with the first owner the reason way well i do not know but i think its like anything you either get a good one or a bad one.
Currently in Donald's garage:
2005 Mercedes Benz C200 Classic SE Kompresser & 1998 Fiat Cinquecento Fire Sporting,some may say i could do far better?,i say i could do far worse.
