Good morning everyone, we recently bought a 1.6 HDI and had a few problems with it straight away, The dealer has been phenomenal and taken it back for a refund. We now have done some research and we now want to go for an 11 plate 2.0hdi. We have found a couple of exclusive editions, one is manual and one is auto. What’s people’s thoughts please? I think the wife wants the auto but how reliable is the auto gearbox? Are we better off going manual?

Sorry if this is a common question

My manual gearbox on the petrol 1.2 engine gave me so much trouble I got rid of the car after 18 months. It was defective from new. I’ve now got a 1.4 auto diesel 3008 and seems to be fine so far

Auto every day of the week... that is the only way our 3008 could be improved!

Just ordered a 1.2 EAT8 Allure Premium to replace a 1.2 EAT6 Allure. Why go manual?
