    Default 3.0 v6 CDTI AUTO BOX

    Hi again, is the auto box on these the same as on the petrol 3.2? are these a strong box? this maybe the deciding factor as ive just read the 3.2 auto box can fail!
    Cheers all, Lee

    Its the same box I believe but has a different cooler arrangement thats the weak spot on the 3.2's However, there was a mod for the cooler on the 3.2 so it may be ok. I am prepared to be proved wrong.

    Also the 3.0 auto has less torque than the manual due to the box.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    I've driven a Signum 3.0CDTi Auto. Wonderful thing it is It was showing 32mpg on the tirp computer. I believe I could get it up to 45 on a long run
