    Default 3.2 V6 auto gearbox problem!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi all,

    joined a few months ago and am the proud owner of two 3.2 Vectra's. Whilst on my way to work on Thursday, i encountered a mechanical problem with my eldest 3.2 andi am gutted. Suffered a loss of power and spanner display on the dash so i pulled over and turned the car off, restarted and ful power was resumed. 1 mile later no power and no drive? Now i am gonna be late for work and they have a zero tolerance policy for lateness! My car is immaculate with 41k (03 plate) and full service history, auto, new everything! So off it goes to the garage,A CLOSE FRIEND) and he sais that there is water in the oil!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Gearbox potentially shagged!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Lots of money to fix, consider scrapping! My immacualte, low mileage, smooth beast?! What do you chaps/girls think? By the way i am now gutted to think my other beast (05 palte 3.2 auto) is gonna give me grief? Please help, advice please?

    So that was back in November and here we are in March and I have just got my car back! The gearbox was totally shagged, £2000 to fix! Ouch! Anyway, i need advice, do i scrap, do i hold out for a second hand box, do i break it? What do you think?

    It has only done just over 40k, immaculate, full leather unmarked, good alloys and tyres, mintex pads and bew disks all round, new (x2) rear exhaust boxes, K & N filter. I really , really want to get it repaired but cannot justify the price?

    Any advice as always would be greatfully received. Thanks in advance....
