From my brief experience and tales from others, you need to be very alert at junctions - not very responsive from a standstill (depends on the type of gearbox, torque converter, or whatever). They're good if you drive in stop/start traffic and don't mind the car arbitrarily deciding what gear you should be in.

I love the qashqai but its just out of my price range. Mine is the second car which will only be used for the school run especially as i hate driving!

I was worried that maybe auto's have more major problems than manuals. Dh has kindly said 'get what you want'angry so he is absolutely no help!

I have just sold my manual peugeot 107 and thinking of getting a Vauxhall meriva automatic.

I havent driven an auto before, are they really easy as everyone says and has anyone owned a meriva? Are they reliable?

My 107 was so cheap to run with no problems other than i hated driving it!!
