    confused Auto Box Problem?

    Hi,

    Just bought the car, Vectra 1.9CDTi Estate Auto, and I've noticed the box is still in 4th gear at 50 mph. When I select the gears manually, it's quite happy to run in 6th gear at this speed. Does the box need adjustment, or is this normal?

    Thanks for any advice.

    well i have a 5 speed auto in my 2.2DTi and when its in D it does rev higher through the gears. it wnt go into 5th until ur at 40mph. if u put in into manual the it will cruise at 30 in 5th with no problems. think its jst the way the ratios have been set. not 100% sure though. see what the others say.

    Thanks for that. Seems to defeat the object if you have to switch to manual to get a higher gear!

    A few things to condsider the gearbox will have learned the driving style of the previous owner (assuming you've bought it used). Also the car may be doing more mpg in 4th than 6th depending on the torque being produced by the engine at that speed.

    6th gear at 40MPH is far too higher gear....

    our old 150 auto didn't select 6th til 60mph ( when it could lock up the torque converter)..

    The car is behaving 100% properly and no fault is present....

    Hi
    I've got a CDTi 150 with the 6 speed auto box and initially had much the same concerns as you. Must admit that for the first day or so I didn't even realise that it was a 6 speed box (doooh!). When it went into service I reported the fact that it seemed to hang in the gears. When I collected it, the 'technician' advised me that 6th gear would only be selected when the car was doing 60-70mph.

    cheers
