okay here is the deal I have a galaxy ghia 1.9tdi 2002 model with TVs sat nav all the mod cons 2wks ago in broke reverse gear on the auto box yes the brake band.

the family think i need to sell the car as the repair for the reverse gear will be £1000-1500....

now the car has a new MOT which it flow through
full service history up until the last 2yrs
115,000 on the clock
and the engine runs fine for its year and i bought it for £1800

You can get the whole autobox swapped out for half that repair cost!!

Personally, better the devil you know!

You have a ghia with extra's if your happy with the car then I would have it done as indeed i did £1600 all in.
