It depends whether it's a conventional auto (torque converter) or whether it's a 'semi' auto like Powershift or DSG (clutches).  I think this will be a full auto box though.  I'd still suspect the 'box myself, has the fluid & filter been changed or has the 'box just been checked for fault codes?

They do have clutches but not in the same way manuals do.

We know this is a 2.0 auto but can't see any mention of petrol or diesel? I believe Ford swapped boxes a fair bit on the C-Max but have an idea that 2.0 petrols got a (Mazda derived?) torque converter and diesels the powershift (dual clutch) box.

I have seen reports of judder/vibration with these, and the VW dsg, particularly if transmission oil changes have been neglected as @TomsFocus mentions.

So it could be a clutch fault then. Mine is an auto powershift double CLUTCH.
