    Default 2007 C3 with AL4

    Mrs Harrisson wants to buy a C3 Auto, which I reckon must be equipped with an AL4.
    Any common knowledge of that model? Is the AL4 less of a problem with a smaller engine and lighter petrol car?

    Opinions appreciated - for a change!

    07s are normally ok but in my experience the low power ones seem to have more terminal failures than the 2l in the modern stuff possibly due to more shifting to stay on song from memory I have probably done 1 2ltr al4 to about 5 1.6 and 1.4 over the years

    Thanks.
    When you say you have "done", you mean you repair them? Good to know

    OK, thanks.
    Had a look at one this morning but too many issues, so still looking for a good C3.
