    Default 2007 1.9 TDCI 150 Auto Gearbox Failed 50K miles

    I was hoping someone might be able to give me any advice as to whether a problem I have is likely to be a known fault.

    Last week my auto gearbox suddenly started to rev between gear changes, particularly 2-3 and 5-6 and then would "thud" into gear. I took the car to the dealer and they have said it is an internal fault and the box needs replacing at a cost of approaching £3500. The car has just 50K miles and is on a 57 plate - Dec 2007 with full dealer service history.

    The matter has been referred to vauxhall for an out of warranty contribution and they initially offered 40%. I escalated this to the execs office and this has been increased to 60% as a goodwill gesture. I appreciate this is probably a very good offer by them but still leaves me with a bill of £1550.

    Has anyone any idea if this is a know fault as I can't find anything standing out in this or any other similar forum? Any suggestion of any tactics to try and get a greater contribution from Vauxhall gratefully received too.

    Many thanks

    There is a known fault where gearbox fluid gets past a seal in the radiator and mixes with the engine's coolant, and the watery-mix fluid then kills the gearbox, but I was under the assumption that that fault was rectified by 2007, can't be sure though.

    Cheers. Checked this with the dealer this morning and looks like my car not affected by this fault. Thanks for the idea though.

    Another idea is to buy a second hand or refurbished unit elsewhere and get an independent garage to fit it, it would probably cost less, all in, than the £1550 you're currently facing.
