The Scenic doesn't urge forward when staionary like my MkII Golf 1800 auto did (that required putting into neutral). OTOH it's not quite as smooth as a BMW 320 I owned.
I'm even considering getting the new Grand Scenic Auto.
p.s. My mate had an Espace V6 Auto which had loads of auto 'box problems, an engine bay fire, overheating & finally died when both head gaskets had blown.
