    Default a photo tells a 1000 words

    I snapped a shot down at the local automatic transmission specialist. This was a shot of their cars that have been permanently parked, possibly terminal cases.

    I think there might be a pattern forming......

    Perhaps they are waiting on a container load of boxes from China

    No. They are the cars that belong to the mechanics. They park them outside like that every day. The real problems are the cars inside the garage that they are working on.....I hope.

    Hi,
    Well certainly there is a pattern forming, NO, already formed

    However having had my VW transporter in for work. Same auto box roots, I can say the mechanics are liable to be incompentent. If it is not a Foldord then they just put their mind into neutral and "its too hard" to get right. I quote "all European manufacturers use the same stupid designs".

    I have brought the car home to fix it myself today as they have obviously mis-diagnosed the problem. However they seem incapable of logical thinking. They just guess the problems from experience. This only works on common brands. This shop is the leading Auto specialist in this area !! What chance with a Citroen Pug or Reno.

    Last year a local well regarded auto transmission shop saw one of its mechanics buy a r19 auto with something wrong with the box.
    I lent the mech my diagnostic computer with the hope that he would learn all about these al4?? gearbox's, and even referred him to jobo, who seems to not be afraid of the problems.
    I figured I was doing the entire sydney french car auto community a favour by helping someone learn about these box's.
    Unfortunately, the problem was never sorted in spite of all the efforts, and I ended up getting the XR25 back without the guy becoming a guru on these auto gearbox's.
