Yep. Will pop in to trustnotaford tomorrow and ask them about it...
Looking at Kia venga or jazz... Unless I see a miracle in the bmax feedback

Met a Trustford mechanic at my local telco and he said to stay away from them for now...every 3rd service apparently needs an oil replacement to keep it Nick...at 160 for six litres of oil! Probably has gold particles in it!

The issue is that this gearbox suffer from juddering and in some cases at early stage, I recommend you to visit someone that service such cars and have a chat with him. I read on various forums that in some cases it was solved by replacing the seal. This gearbox is used on the fiesta in the USA and their automatic gearboxes are really common and the Ford US know this issue and did a new seal.
