Automatic can be tricky
Automatic transmission works nice until the oil gets very hot - city driving. Then it starts to go into 3rd and stays there. It doesn't shift properly from N to 1, or when stopping it jerks into N... The service says that some bearings have to be changed. 1000-1500€
When buying an automatic, keep in mind that with a higher mileage you'll have to make a full service on your auto trans as on manual. But a manual costs less; almost half less.
When I fix the auto transmission, I hope it will work properly.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

"Automatic transmission works nice until the oil gets very hot - city driving."
- Get a transmission oil cooler. It's a radiator for the transmission.

I've repaired the fault. It was "only" 320€.

What is the solution to the hotness of the gear oil, where when it's hot, the car will not move faster, and if you are in a hold up, you will find it difficult to move the car?
