    Default Gearbox Oil Leak

    Ok should I be concerned, just had the Vectra in today for a suspension noise problem and VX have advised me that the gearbox is leaking oil!!! They've asked me to bring it back in 200miles to be reinspected. I heard that 3.2's do regularly have gearbox problems?

    Did they say where it's leaking?? Did they do anything to the car whilst they had it?? Has the box been washed off?? Perhaps that may be why they want you back in 200,as a check??

    I have run previous models of this auto box to over 200K and 150K miles and neither gave a cough.. The only thing I've heard of is the cooler leaking, not an oil leak... We now have 3 auto's in the family and touch wood all 3 are fine..

    Forgot to mention the gearbox is manual rather than auto. They've cleaned it off and want me to report back in 200 miles to another check.
