    Default Anyone got an Automatic Diesel ?

    A mate has a peugeot 406/7 ? automatic diesel and is looking for a change. He likes the extra room that the vectra has and I was wondering what the opinion is with a diesel mated to an auto gearbox.

    It'll limit the choice as it's not as popular, that was the combination I was after before deciding on the v6. Only gripe I have with the autobox is that sometimes I like to drive at 30-35mph in 5th when driving manuals but the auto won't let yu do this. Not sure of the impact this wud have on a diesel tho.....

    Mine is Auto Diesel and its Great, as far as wanting to go into 5th at 30-35 I just use manual gear selection.

    Mine is a 1.9CDTi Auto and I love it. Only issue I had was sometime i just want to drive it to the redline but auto would not let you. Since I had it remapped to 185-190bhp it doesn't matter because its so ****** quick now anyway

    I have the V6 CDTI with an auto box and its great 40+ mpg an goes like a rocket when you want it too, box itself is very smooth and never given me any problems, unlike the engine, perfect until 100,000 miles then it just kinda turned to crap! Saying that though i will be buying another V6 CDTI Auto, just with very low miles.

    Mine won't let me go into a higher gear unless i'm doing about 1600rpm or more in the current gear....can't get into 5th until i'm at about 40mph

    does the autobox "learn" your driving style similar to the bmw steptronic box on the e39's?

    Not in the 1.9 cdti you wouldn't - it's so far off the turbo that you would quickly want to get back into 3rd - even 4th is too high at 30.

    Ive got a 1.9 150 sri estate auto (standard) I love driving it, the only thing is it seems a bit heavy on juice around town, its o.k on the motorway. Like the guys said in the other posts it does not change up gear as soon as you would if you were driving a manual hence the extra fuel use.
