    Which automatic Fiesta to buy?

    Ok thanks. So ALL 1.4 automatic Fiestas built between 09-12 have the torque converter gearbox? And this gearbox is known to be ok?

    Thanks Trewithy. Looking on Autotrader there are lots of 1.4 autos from 2009-2011 in my price range, but none describe the type of gearbox. How would I know which have the torque converter type?

    Which automatic Fiesta to buy?

    Thanks for your help everyone. A bit concerned about the first reply re problems. Does anyone have any experience to back this up?
  4. Hi, first-time poster here. I'm researching what car to buy my mum, who is now in her mid-70s. She's been driving a 2.0L automatic Focus for the past 10 years but it's constantly in the garage as has done 100k+ miles. It's also far too punchy for her. She does some town driving, as well as motorways once or twice a week. After looking at other options - Toyota Yaris, Honda Jazz, Skoda Fabia, etc - I've decided to go for a Fiesta. My criteria is: > Automatic gearbox > Engine size: 1.4L or less > Budget: £6k Is there anything in particular I should look out for with Fiesta automatic gearboxes? Are there any particular models/years/trims to go for, or avoid? Thanks in advance
