Why do you wish you got the auto? I have a 15 plate 2.5 at the moment, wanting to shift it while it’s still worth decent money

I had a 15 plate manual 2.5 from new. Found it great 32 to 34 real world mpg towed brilliantly
Just changed it got a new 1.9 auto. Bit posher inside but basically the same. Still a good drive, auto easier to drive that manual but still not convinced always been a manual man. Seems to tow well enough doing 28 to 30 mpg but still under 1000 miles.
I think there great value for money.
Hope this helps.

Glad to hear these comments got a 2.5 and love it but not convinced by the 1.9 when towing
That was my thoughts, but at the end of the day I don’t do vast amounts of towing so it should be fine for what I do, the occasional trailer full of cows and flat trailer with 2 ton on every so often

A man has pleaded guilty at Newtownards Magistrates’ Court to waste offences relating to a bonfire next to the electrical sub-station on the Circular Road in Newtownards, Co. Down.

Gareth Gill (51) of Abbot’s Walk, Newtownards pleaded guilty to two charges under the Waste and Contaminated Land (Northern Ireland) Order 1997, for which he was fined £150 each and ordered to pay a £15 offender’s levy

On June 25, 2018, PSNI officers went to Gill’s yard, where they found a large amount of waste consisting of scrap wood, pallets, carpet and underlay.
